Roller Coaster

Since our daughter was diagnosed with metasatic breast cancer on Valentines Day 2006 Our life has been like a roller coaster Down then up a little way then way down again
When she came home from her trip she looked and seemed so well
Aparently she had a funny turn while away and told noone because she knew Jim would make her come home
She has had a headache for the past three weeks and was told by her GP to go home and take aspirin
Finally they are taking notice of her and have now discovered there is a tumour on the brain
Today I took her for an MRI and tomorrow I will go with her and Jim to the Cancer hospital in Melbourne
Hopefully they will have some results and she will be told it is benign
Life is so hard sometimes Please include us in your prayers
Iam having a little trouble dealing with this news at present
She wont let us tell anyone until she knows for sure what she is facing ,so I have noone to talk to about it
Sorry this is such a depressing post but its the way I feel at the moment
