imagePatty - I'm out of ICU- Yeah, for small Victories!  I will try to keep this brief, as there is no way I could ever write what all has happened since my last post. The bottom line and most important is that I am now back in a Oncology floor with a telementry bed. I feel so very blessed for this has been a true test of my faith. Most importedly is," I have improved". I don't even mind that I am still wired up to the extent I am hesitant to pick …More…

imageA Lopez - PET Scan  Got my latest PET scan results two days ago.  The tumor in my liver is inactive and the one in my pancreas shrank from 3.8 cm to 2.3 cm.  Doctor is now switching me over to 28 radiation treatments as he feels that this will get me to remission.  I am elated but at the same time in awe that it took only 12 chemo treatments to get me to this point.  It may not be "NED" but I will …More…

imageKatie - Cancer has returned - to hospice I go!  And I now have a giant tumor of advanced anal cancer in the sternum/pancreas/aorta area.  And am in hospice. It's been a long and painful trip getting here.  From not being able to have a bowel movement last July/August, to the initial diagnosis, to the treatments that radiated and chemo'd my body into a collection of second degreee burns to a long and difficult "retraining" those bowels to the loss of the ability to eat food and process it in my …More…

The whole family spent alot of time in Andrew's bed hugging and remembering and talking and laughing and crying …More…

imageAngela - Port Placement and Second Thoughts  Well, tomorrow I go in for my port.  I am really nervous about it.  Everyone says it will be OK, but I am still nervous.  I do not do well with sedation or anesthesia.  Next week I will begin my treatments. I am going to do weekly Taxol, along with Avastin and Carboplatin every 3 weeks. I am NOT looking forward to this at all!  Not that anyone ever does...I am worried about feeling bad, and I am not looking forward …More…

imageThomas56 - 33 month check up  This November will be the 3rd anniversary of the end of my treatment. I saw the radiation oncologist yesterday for my three-month check-up. In his words, ‘things look good, they look better than good.” He doesn’t even want to do another scan – which is perfectly fine with me. Needless to say I’m extremely happy. I have had some intermittent soreness and pain in the treatment area so I was mildly concerned. I have kind of always had it – …More…
