imageDeborah - Another day in our journey  On Wednesday we drove to Dana Farber in Boston for another opinion, our oncologist referred us there for other options as well.  This was our second trip, we went for a consult in 2017 while things were going better.   It was a 4 hour drive from Maine which we didnt mind but the kicker was, our doctor's office sent Roger's records but neglected to include his most recent scan that showed the spread in his chest.  So the visit became a comedy of …More…

imageDanell - Round #3 - Loss and Love  Round #3 is over and done.  I am halfway done with chemo which is so nice to know.  Unfortunately, this week as been bittersweet.  My poor Duffy took a turn for the worse and I had to say goodbye.  He was an amazing companion during my first cancer and I had hoped that we would have many more years together.  He truly would have made a great therapy dog.  Calm and comforting and always there to make sure I was …More…
