cathyr Posted July 4, 2004 Share Posted July 4, 2004 Hi everyone, I've been out of pocket for about a month. My daughter came to visit me from Boston a month ago and is staying another 2 weeks. She lost her daddy ( my darling Richard) to this same disease four years ago and now faces the inevitability of me suffering the same results some time in the future as I am now at stage 4. It has been wonderful being with her and I am trying to pamper, spoil, and spend quality time with her while I can. I have been enduring chemo since Jan. 11, 2004 and have 1 more treatment to go on July 12th. Then, it will be another CT scan and we will see what the status is. I sure would like to take a break from the chemo. Although there has been no shrinkage since the chemo started, the last scan was stable and there were no new spots. I am planning a trip to Europe to go antiquing the first week in Oct. It's something I've always wanted to do and while I can I am going to do it. My prayers go out to Cheryl, who I absolutely adore and of course, to Fay A, always an inspiration to me. I love you both. I always carry this web site and it's members close to my heart. I am still reeling from the deaths of Mo Sugar, Nancy ( a friend of mine in my support group in L.A.), and the imminent death of a neighbor of mine only 51 years old named Greg, of lung cancer. I hate this disease and everything it means. I pray for us all every day. I try to remain as strong as I can and not give in to IT. I love you guys, CathyR Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
