November 24, 2009 Thanksgiving Eve
Today I started my second round of chemo. It went extremely well as they were able to use the new porto-cath. Piece of cake. As usual everyone was so nice and cheerful and actually made the day kind of fun. Reggie and April came with me. It is so nice to have people I love so much with me. It helps make me feel invincible.
Now for the best news...when they draw my blood they run a test that shows the markers of the tumor. When Dr. Ryan blew into my room like a tornado the first words he said, "Well, great news the markers have shrunken!" I knew immediately that that meant the tumor had shrunk!!!!!!!!!!! And what that tells me, my loyal soldiers, is that we are certainly doing some ASS KICKING! GOOD JOB EVERYBODY.
Tomorrow when I sit down to my dinner I will be most thankful for all the wonderful, supportive soldiers I have to help me fight this dreaded disease. I can not thank all of you enough for how you are lifting me up and carrying me forward with hope.
My love to all of you and have a very wonderful Thanksgiving!!
