The Day Has Come

Good Evening all my fellow soldiers!!!!!

Christopher, Jeffrey, Connie, Reggie and April accompanied me to the all important meeting with Dr. Ryan. I think when he walked into the room he was a little overhwelmed, however that did not stop him from saying immediately ... "the NEWS IS GOOD!!!" Let me tell you the news was not only good it was fantastic. Are you ready?


I believe that the power of prayer and love have accomplished this. And that means all of you!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I did not do this alone, it was a combined effort of us all.

Now we are on another journey together. Tomorrow I will go in to be measured for radiation and will then start the chemo and radiation combo on February 1st. Please know that I am ready for this. If we kicked ass this last round that tumor better watch out because we are really going to step up our game and do some major ass kicking!! Soooo get ready we are own our way!

Love to you all!!!

Big Day Tomorrow!!


Christopher and I went to Mass General yesterday morning and I had the Cat Scan I
have been waiting so long to have. I felt like it would never come and now it is done and we hear the results late tomorrow afternoon. Christopher is taking me to the Celtics tonight so the night will pass quickly.

They decided to give me another chemo bedfore I meet with the Dr. Ryan and I take that as a hopeful sign. We will be a large group. My sister, Connie, Reggie, April, and of course Christopher and Jeffrey will be with me. (Our own small army) I will post the news when I get home.

Take care,

Januery 7,2010

To all my fellow soldiers!

Yesterday was my last chemo treatment until my cat scan on January 17th and then my appointment with Dr. Ryan. April and Christopher ( at the last minute ) were able to go with me. I as was so glad to have Christopher to be able to go with me! It was an uneventful event as everything went went according to plan. It was my last visit with Ed as my infusion nurse as he does not work on Mondays. I am sorry that I want have him. He has been so positive, kind and full of hope. I looked forward to seeing him and will miss our talks.

The most important news to share is that my blood worked showed that the markers have shrunk once again!!! According to Terry, my oncology practitioner, that is great news, but even more important she said, " The way you look and feel and have tolerated the chemo is even a greater indicator!" I will take that. She forgot to say that all of my soldiers with their prayers, love and support have helped to make this all possible. I know I have said this before, but it needs saying again...your comments, support, love and dinners have been my inspiration.

Thank you, I love you all!!
