Wednesday, 2/27/19

Good Wednesday evening, everyone! I hope you all are having a great week, thus far. Although Morgan was in the clinic yesterday for a brief visit and the majority of today,  I’d say she’s having a good week.

This morning started early with her having a bone marrow biopsy and spinal tap. Chemotherapy was also injected into her spine at that time. Following those procedures she received 2 units of blood, which she tolerated well. Although she was due to start her second month of IV chemotherapy this round today, it was postponed. After reviewing her lab results from yesterday, her  oncologist felt like it was in her best interest to wait for her bone marrow biopsy results to come in before proceeding.

It is my understanding that if the biopsy results reveal that the current regimen is working, she will start IV chemotherapy next week; although, her blood counts may not be favorable. On the other hand, if the biopsy result shows otherwise, she may have to delay IV chemotherapy another week, if her counts are still low. Until then, we will patiently wait for directions.

With that said, I must also say that our girl is a trooper. She really is a champion!  As her mother I have the privilege of being by her side as she endures treatment, and as she faces each day . Not only does she handle her cancer diagnosis with such grace, but her physical challenges, also. As difficult as her days can be from a physical standpoint, she faces each one of them head on without hesitation and often with a smile & a giggle. It’s priceless, really.

Morgan Watson, I am so proud to be your mother. It is a gift and an honor. I love you, dear!

Warmest regards,

Salina Watson

  3. Morgan is such an inspiration to Gil and I. She has bone marrow tests and spinal taps (which, I hear, are very painful) quite a bit and she seems to take it in stride. Her attitude is always positive and we really believe you, Salina, have taught her to endure and accept all that she’s going through.

    We very recently found out that Gil has bladder cancer and he is adopting Morgan’s attitude and is going to Kick Cancer’s Butt. We are meeting with his doctor Friday and will plan his treatment. Fight Like A Man/Girl!

    • Oh my goodness, Rita. I am so sorry that I am just seeing this. Having previously been in the healthcare for 25 years & working in Urology for 8, I have helped treat many bladder cancer patients. I will certainly add Gilbert to my prayer list. We love you guys. Thank you for your sweet words.
