imageLaren - This is us   https://garfield.com/comic/2017/05/26 Hello, everyone. I haven't posted for a while, mostly because there's not much to report, other than that we're still her! Emsnana is still alive and kicking, and she is about to get her second cataract surgery. The chemo has accelerated cataract formation, and she was delighted at the effect of having one eye repaired. She's even talking about driving! I saw this cartoon yesterday,  but I couldn't figure out how to cut it and paste, so I've put in the web site …More…

imageCsbody - Home Sweet Home  I finished my last treatment last Thursday.  I headed home this past Sunday. I've been away six weeks and it is so wonderful to be in my bed and my home!  I do have some questions maybe someone can help me with.  I have pain periodically when I have a bm.

imageNeal - Affirmations, (Echoes) ... a Poem  Thank You. COMMENTS (ECHOES)  .... maybe a better word than "comments" is "affirmations"...not sure yet.  Open to input on that...leaning toward affirmations, as they are always positive.  I decided....affirmations it is AFFIRMATIONS (ECHOES) Affirmations Like echoes, Echoes are a wondrous thing. You shout And your voice rushes out into space And instead of fading, Dissipating into nothingness, Dropping off into a vast void, A bottomless canyon, An infinite, endless expanding universe, Your voice comes back to you. Almost a surprise Almost unexpected Your mouth still open, your lips apart A look of awe and wonder, a wisp …More…

imageDeborah - And the news is Good!!!  We went for Roger's post op appointment today and were given the pathology findings.  They found clear margins and only 2 out of 17 lymph-nodes showed signs of involvement.  This, according to our surgeon, is about the best we could hope for.  She said this means right now, all the cancer is gone.  We have known about the tumor since last Oct, and it was likely in him for 2-3 years prior to that time.  She gave him the go …More…

imageNeal - Winnie, friend to the end  WINNIE Winnie is a Boyd bear (a stuffed toy, cuddly bear, wearing pink overalls) we adopted somewhere around 2001, give or take. She has been an important part of our family. You must understand that Winnie communicates with us, and vice versa. She has a personality, very strong opinions at times, is a bit of a wise ass, and is not afraid to make obscene gestures when she does not like someone, or gets mad at them. She can be rather fresh …More…

imageStefanie - Follicular Lymphoma folks...  "For One Hematologist, No Disease Progressions in Follicular Lymphoma With Rituximab Maintenance" I had the most interesting conversation with my oncologist today.  I went in for my second to last maintenance rituximab, and when my doctor came by I mentioned how happy I was to almost be done.  He brought up the article above and mentioned that he was considering keeping me on maintenance because of where my tumor presented (abdomen) vice the more common neck or armpit area.  He was …More…
