The Latest News

I will be starting my new trial chemo next Tuesday.  The next 3 weeks will be quite challenging, as I have to be at the doctor's office several days each week.  Then it will be only once a week.

I am so hopeful for this regimen.  They have had some encouraging results.  I could use some encouragement!!

I feel really well.  I have started noticing that my legs hurt a little less, now that I am off the Avastin.  Hopefully, this will continue to improve.

I had all my pretesting done today....it was a long day, but my son was with me, and he always keeps me laughing.  We went out for a fantastic breakfast - for lunch! 

Then I did a bit of shopping at Target and JoAnns....I really did find a couple of cute things....to be shown soon on my Thinkin' of Home blog!

So think of me next Tuesday.  Halloween day will be the 6th anniversary of my surgery.  They gave me 9 months!!  Praise the Lord, I am still here, loving life.

I hope you all love life too!!!

Ceekay, You are an inspiration! It is so good that you are loving life and living well and I want you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Yes, I will be praying for these next treatments to go very well and that you won't have any side effect. How good it is that you are feeling better without the Avastin. One day at a time and make it a great one...sounds as if you and your family know how to do that.

CeeKay, you are such an inspiration to all, your gentle spirit and beautiful grace come through both of your blogs......I have lost two friends to OC and a third is fighting the battle of her life.
You are often in my prayers and I somehow always manage to have a little cry when I visit your blogs...I lost my Mom, sister and SIL all at the same time to cancer and all while I was going through a divorce.
Life is a battle sometimes but you, my sweet lady are an inspiration to all and I just love your tenacity......
Hugs,
