December 14, 2009

I did not get the Christmas present I so most wanted....a good scan. Although my recent CT was not "horrible" it was just worse enough to know that the current clinical trial I have been on for 3 months is not working for me. This seems to be a regular occurance in my fight. My husband always said I was stubborn...I guess this cancer is too.
So, we will be starting the week after Christmas on another trial. Traditional chemo no longer is effective, but this new trial gives an "add on" drug to the chemo to amplify it's effectiveness...in theory!
I am very healthy otherwise, which is a tremendous blessing....just want to keep it that way.

And my veins...nope, not a drop of blood out of those babies today. Had to go through the port.

I probably will not post again on this blog until I know more about when I will start the new drug therapy.

Again, I always want you to know how much I appreciate your love, concern and most importantly, your prayers.

Merry Christmas!

Ceekay, my prayers are with you. Hang in there and keep fighting. There are always new things coming out that can help people with cancer. I know someone right now who inspires me to no end. He has prostrate cancer and has opted for a different kind of therapy. So far so good. And this fabulous man keeps running marathons!!! Every time I hear he is in another race I just admire him more. So there is a treatment that will help you, I am sure of it. Science is incredible. Sending you prayers and lots of hugs. YOu can never have to many of either.

Hi Ceekay. I'm adding this blog to my list. I had a very dear friend pass away a few years ago from liver cancer. Although its a very slow growing cancer, he had been misdiagnosed for many years until it was too late. I want you to know that I'm praying for you, and supportive of you all the way. Rosie

CeeKay, just keep fighting the good fight. You inspire me. Your grace is a picture of the peace that Jesus provides only when we are still and abide in him. How do people who don't have him do it?!

I prayer for a year filled with miracles for you!

Connie said...

Yes...you're stubborn...that's why you're fighting this with such fight. I prefer to call it tenacity. (lends a more dignified 'tude to it all)

You know we're praying. Hang in there.

love ya,

I think this blog is a good idea. I had no idea the clinical trial failed. But I have hope that the new drug will be effective.

As always, you are in my prayers everyday. How courageous you are!!

Happy holidays, sweetie! :-)

I`m hoping and praying the next one works.

Love ya my friend. ~Melissa :)
