This is not about dementia but I just need to share this.  I have been feeling physically ill and exhausted for the past few months.  An ultrasound shows some sort of tumour in my stomach about 6 to 7 cm in size.  I had an abdominal ct scan with the contrast dye on Thursday to both get a better view of the tumour and to see if any other organs have been affected.   I can no longer eat solid food or even work out at the gym and feel really run down.

Even if it turns out to not be cancer they are going to have to do something about it so I can eat properly again.  If it is cancer that opens a lot of questions and options to think about.  

My family Dr. is going to try and get the results on Monday and then discuss options with me.  I have not even told my kids yet.  Will talk to them Monday night when I have more info.

The only good thing is it has taken my focus off the dementia for awhile.

Since your last post where you mentioned it, I have been keeping you in my prayers.  Feel free to talk about it all you want to here, that is what we are here for.

When things are pressing like that, and there is not a lot you can do between doctor appointments, it helps to spend the time doing nice things for yourself and doing stuff you enjoy. 

Hang in there my friend.

Waiting to hear what the medical people find regarding growth in your stomach.

No wonder you were irritable and felt sick. Think of you often and hope this is fixable.

Keeping you in my prayers. Much love, have courage when you can.
