Time's Up

posted Sep 19, 2014, 8:14 AM by FightingFor Mya

Mya had her MRI yesterday. The scan revealed that the are now tumors and disease throughout her brain and spine. The radiation sessions did shrink the tumors on her spine, but they are still there. The disease in her brain has expanded substantially. There is now tumor pushing on her brain stem, where a person's breathing is controlled. As the tumor continues to grow, the pressure will increase. Eventually, this will make her stop breathing.

Mya has been sleeping on and off since yesterday. She is now on a constant drip of morphine, to make her more comfortable. The doctors have given us an estimated timeframe of a couple of days to a week, before she will pass away.

In the past, we talked about having her at home for the end. However, after talking with the teams here and due to the short amount of time that she has left; we are leaning towards keeping her at the hospital. With the assistance and expertise of the doctors and nurses here, we don't have to worry about doing everything ourselves at our house. At the hospital, we can just focus on being with her and loving her.

We would like to thank everyone for their continued love, prayers, and positive thoughts during this difficult journey. You have truly lifted us up.
