  9. Dear Sue, I always love to see your happy smile in your picture when you post. I know your news is depressing you, but it sounds like you've been given a good avenue to investigate with the RFA. Also, about IRESSA. Is there any way that your tumor sample could be tested to see it would respond to IRESSA? Please ask the onc about that. It sounds like you still have some good options. I am thinking of you Sue. Love, Ada

Here is his information: http://www.tnoncology.com/burris.html Centennial Medical Center does many, many clinical trials. More than any private hospital in the US. I was able to get in to see him very quickly and my radiation was started very quickly. I don't know what route you want to take, but Dr. Burris struck me as an excellent problem-solver and scientist. It is at his suggestion that my tumor slide is being analyzed to see which chemo would work for me (or at least

    Dear Jenny, This is just wonderful news. You've worked so hard for this. I am very, very happy for you. Love, Ada
  23. Dear Ginny, I have found that there is no such thing as "bouncing back" from all of these treatments. They take their toll, but things will improve---slowly. Thinking of you and Earl, Love, Ada
  24. Dear Luluc, The port still needs to be flushed every 28 days. This can be done at the oncologist's office. My doctors also prescribe a very low dose (1 mg per day) of Warfarin, a blood thinner. Ada
  25. Dear Shelly, I am very, very sad tonight as I am reading your post. I know this has shaken you to the core. I am so sorry about your Mother. For months Shelly you have asked God for a miracle for your Mother. Each time you wrote that, I wanted to tell you that I was always able to see God's miracle for your Mother and his miracle for her was you, dear Shelly. Love, Ada
