imageLarissa - Thought of the day....journal entry August 29 2014  When your mind is weary and your body cries out in pain you have the choice to curl up in a ball and allow it to consume you or you can stand up, breathe gently and take note of what is around you.  In time the world will remind you that it holds beauty and wonders worth fighting for.  Time, it's not a race but a gentle stroll through life.  My heart, mind and soul cry out for you that …More…

imageAngela - Unexpected Change of Plans  About 1 pm yesterday, my insurance called me to tell me that they would not pay for my chemotherapy if I stayed with OU Stevenson Cancer Center.  Because I was now not going to do Phase 1 clinical trials (I did not qualify), and I was only going to take the "standard" treatment, then I had to go to an In-Network facility.  I argued and complained and stressed the importance of staying with OU so that I could be available …More…

imageMicah - Crossroads  Treatment #12 is finally here.  As we speak.  Its been a wild past couple of months.  My first port (used to access a vein for chemo... like an IV but temporarily installed under the skin for the duration, and then some, of chemo) developed a clot and had to be removed.  Then there was the PicLine.  Installed in the arm with lines dangling out.  Had to be flushed daily and dressing change weekly.  I held onto that until I couldn't stand …More…

imagePatty - A possible Discharge Date....  Dr.W. came in for a lengthy visit with his impression of how I can prevent this from reoccurring again. The good news is the BCR=ABLE was all ZERO'S, which means the leukemia is still in remission, what wonderful news to hear. He said, we just have to prevent a reoccurrence of the hypolovemic shock from reoccurring again. As I mentioned previously, He very much surprised me with bringing up the need for medicinal marijuana. He went on to say that …More…

imageSharie - No new scans for me for awhile...  My oncologist wants me to have another CT scan - even though I just had one in December - as a follow up to the benign liver cysts they saw previously. The insurance company says "nope" - guidelines for my type of cancer in remission are once every three years, unless I have new symptoms. The doctor doesn't agree, but he can't do anything. I can't do anything either, unless I want to pay for it out of pocket. Um. …More…
