Welcome to my blog dedicated to my Journey with Teal....Ovarian Cancer. This blog is where I will make updates to my treatments and tests....hoping to keep blog friends updated and answer any questions from visitors. I did not pick this journey, but am doing the best I know how to walk strong and gracefully, with my Lord's continual strength!

Oh Boy, Here we go!

I knew this day was coming.  I just hoped it wouldn't be now.  I just got a call from my oncologist's office and they have decided that I need to go back on traditional chemo.  I am NOT happy.  My oncologist does not feel comfortable waiting for a clinical trial to open up and me not having any treatment.
Unfortunately, this means good bye hair and hello steroids. 

I really wish I could post something fun and uplifting for the weekend...but as my friend Ro says, it is what it is.

I will post after I see the oncologist next week and tell you what the plan is.  Please pray for me.  I know it is vain, but I really cannot stand losing my hair again.

Oh CeeKay Sweetie...
I am so sorry to hear this my sweet friend. I will be sending up prayers for you. This is just a temporary thing, we are going to think positive. They will come up with another trial for a different treatment sweetie.

Hugs, hugs. XOXO Sherry

No bueno! Sorry it looks like you're having to go there again, CK. I'll be praying your body accepts the chemo better this time. ♥ always.

Karen said...

Actually - this eases my mind a little, because 28 days with no meds was making me nervous. I know it's miserable - I know you hate it. But hopefully they will find another trial in the future once this treatment kicks CA butt!!
Praying for you as always. HUGS! Me.

I wanted to come over and comment here. I don't know why, it just seems more personal. Truthfully I wish we could be together and talk in person versus a comment.
You know, I don't think it is out of line to say that I am going to be praying that there will be a chemo miracle and you don't lose your hair. While it may seem like a small thing to many, it must be truly challenging thing for a woman. I know when I was having (and continue to have) issues with my chest region I somehow feel less than a woman....I don't know how to explain it. So, I am praying that the chemo will do its job AND you keep your hair.
Blessings to you my friend.

Holding you firmly and securely in my heart, hang on!!

I was nervous in reading that you were going one month without treatment. Glad you will start up treatment again, but sorry you will lose your hair and hope you have no other side effects. I hope and pray they come up with a trial Chemo for your Cancer soon that kills the Cancer with very minimal effects for good. Take care. I hope you do not mind me popping in as you have been a person who comments on Ashley's Blog and I felt I really wanted to know you have my thoughts and prayers. Too many are struggling with Cancer in my life right now. Lots of prayers and hoping for more than what is out there for those battling Cancer. Hugs to you!!

Hello Ceekay, thank you for letting us all know the latest. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I'm sorry that you have to go through this again. You are a truly beautiful and special person inside and out. And you continue to help each of us to better understand this illness and treatment process. You also help us to see how to face trials such as this with dignity and steady courage. With Love, Delisa

It is what it is, you aren't here to make us happy. Yep, push forward and nip it in the bud. Oh I get it, I would hate to lose my hair! OK lets look for the silver lining...It will be cooler soon so a wig won't be so hot. That is the best I can do except when I lay my head on my pillow every night you are included in my prayer list.
