Finally posting updates on treatments/scans


Recommended Posts

I am so bad about posting! By the time of day that I get on the computer I can only check e-mails & then I'm ready to get in my jammies & get some sleep.

And I should be updating my profile. One of these days I will.

But in the meantime......

I had the cyberknife done in January to get rid of two tumors. One the size of a grape, the other a pea.

Since then two brain MRI's. Both showing that the tumors are gone! I have an appt. for another one in mid-August & hoping that they haven't come back.

I had a chest CT scan in Dec. that showed cancer in my lymph nodes so was put on Tarceva & Avastin (every 3 weeks). in Jan. Then another scan in April that showed some shrinkage in the lymph nodes. They had also been concerned about some little nodules in both lungs.

I had another CT scan on July 22 & doc said that they don't see the nodules & the lymph nodes are no longer enlarged.

So doc is calling me stable & I am very, very happy about that!

Happy dance time here but not anything too strenous as I still suffer fatigue.....small price to pay in return for all the good things that have happened to me. I consider myself very, very blessed to be here.

Thanks guys for my first good laugh of the day. I needed that? Creekgirl for the request and Randy for the video. A big contratulations. I appreciate the value of stable! And the fatigue, still trying to adjust to the fact that fatigue from the treatment is better than fatigue from the cancer.

Susan & Michelle.....

I am kinda inclined to let Randy off this time because "bless his heart" he is trying even tho he won't committ himself & keeps sending me these imposters.....lol.

But the next time I get a good scan I too want to see RANDY himself doing the happy dance.

Randy are you listening??????? And I could get another good scan as I go for a brain MRI in mid August. So have those dancing shoes ready!


BTW, Mocha is a good judge of dancing.
