We will be doing a Bible study on John 7:1-24
To All of Ruth Cantrell's Friends and Family
As some of you know Ruth was scheduled to see a specialist, Dr. Sophia Chung, at SLU last week. Dr. Chung along with several Residents examined Ruth for over 4 hours and determined it was probable the return of the cancer at the pituitary gland area that was noted when she was in the hospital in March. She was sent to SLU Hospital for a high resolution MRI that they have and it was confirmed that the growth on the pituitary gland had grown rapidly and this is what is causing all the eye problems. We were then referred to the SLU Cyberknife (directional radiation) program at Lake St. Louis. We went to see Dr. John Bedwinek Friday and he agreed with Dr. Chung's diagnosis and felt they could treat the growth on the pituitary gland with no problem with the Cyberknife program. His main concern was her second condition of being very tired, sleepy and lethargic. It could be several things and some are not good and it will require more testing. Ruth is scheduled for a Spinal Tap and PET scan next week to try and isolate the second condition.
I am sending this email to let people know her condition, right now she is tired and would rather not talk on the phone. We will let everyone know her progress as anything new happens.
This Thursday at 11am I am going to be "arrested" by the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The main reason for this is to raise money for the MDA. If I get $500 raised I get two tickets to a Cardinals game. I don't expect that I will make it by tomorrow, (right now I am at $55) but if you all were waiting till the last minute, just know that the deadline is tomorrow.
God's peace on your day!
