February 4 Update

Good Morning my neglected Soldiers!

I am sorry I have not felt well enough these last couple of weeks to keep you posted as to what is going on. My last post gave you all the good news about the tumor and that I would be starting the chemo/radiation quickly. After I posted all of that I got a call from Dr. Ryan explaining that the new protocol that he wanted me to get into would not budge regarding the number of chemo treatments one had to have to start their program. I had to have another round of chemo with the gemcitabine (the one I have been having all along). I have already had two rounds and will have the third round tomorrow and then there will be a two week break and I will start the chemo/radiation on February 22nd. It has changed from 5 days to 7 days a week of chemo through the pump and 5 days going in to MGH for the radiation. Doesn't sound like much fun, but it does sound like a way to the cure and that is just fine with me!

I know that through this next round I will be able to feel the love and prayers of my incredible Army.

Take care,


  1. We continue to have you wrapping in and surrounded by Love and Light. We'll be sitting on the beach on the Big Island before you know it! Much love, Jerry and Jerry.

  2. Greetings to our commanding officer!

    You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers, and as Jerry said in the post above, surrounded by our love and light, moving you forward toward the victory we all know is yours.
    The healing energy continues to embrace you and fill you with the power to heal. YOU are an amazing example to all of us as you live your vision, never stepping off the path to wellness.
    I am so looking forward to the next time I can share in your radiant glow and hear your infectious laugh. I'm so thankful to have met you and to call you friend.
    Till we can bask in the warmth of the Hawaiian sun and swim in the clear waters of the Pacific.

    Much love,
