What the Doctor said...

Saw my oncologist today and I am again "stable".  No new tumors and some minimal shrinkage on some.  This was wonderful news!  However, there was a bit of negative.  I absolutely have to stop losing weight.  The problem is not what I am eating....it is that it doesn't stay with me.  So we are going to try a new medicine for the bowels and hope that the weight loss stops. 
I laugh at this a bit as anyone who knows me knows that I have struggled with weight all my life..  Doctors always said LOSE WEIGHT.  So now I am losing it, and they say STOP! 
I am thankful that I now can focus in on my vacay.  I will be MIA from the blog for a while, but I will be back.  My hubs is going to hold down the fort at home....that should be interesting!!

Talk to you sometime in May....be safe and enjoy LIFE!
