bunny Posted September 12, 2005 Share Posted September 12, 2005 hi all. I am back from running the roads all in one piece and SO happy I went. first, the important stuff: my mama suki is doing GREAT. just before I left (literally, that day) she saw the onc. who officially 86'd adjuvent chemo. she's just been through too much, she'd be too vulnerable. she'll go back to him in a month, and he's committed to starting her on Tarceva "when the dust clears". she also saw the surgeon while I was gone and he was thrilled with her progress. the echo, chest x-ray and EKG were all great, which means her complications have all subsided. her lung looks good in the x-ray, and she's still on 2 liters of O2 but can wean as she feels comfortable. sat levels without O2 still in the high 80's so she'll wean slowly. she had bruch with friends yesterday, and is talking about starting to drive again soon. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT. I just could not be happier about this. now, THE TRIP: Ry, Beth, Murrell's Inlet is awesome. we ended up at a place called Creek Ratz (next to the Dead Dog, which was packed) and fell in love with it. great food, live music and what a setting! all in all we had a great week. I saw the outer banks, charleston, and lots of beach, beach and more beach. we rode on some beautiful, southern, country roads - trees draped with spanish moss, boggy looking streams. it was beautiful. ate enough fried seafood and crabcakes to last a lifetime. and my tuckus (that's NY for tush ) is recovering from all that riding - 2300 miles, all told. whew. missed you guys. I am devastated by the news of Beth and Dean Carl. elated at Maryanne and Joel's great results, and happy to hear from Fay. Fay, the patron saint of the chicken cult finally arrived - can I have your address so I can send him to you? I will slowly try and reply to everyone's posts. it's overwhelming to come back to. this is long, if you made it this far you are a wonderful friend. even if you didn't, I treasure all of you so much. xoxo amie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
