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…

imageNeal - A Drink and a Wish, from the Well  a Poem and a Wish, for those who just need a little something   DRINK FROM THE WELL     Only when you drink from the well of silence will you surely you find your voice, for to truly sing, one must be able to listen, especially to oneself as well as filtering through this noise encumbered world, and attention or quiet mind is needed to untangle the web of voices within. Only then may the jumble of voices be deciphered and layered to blend and ring out in harmonious luster, shining light onto …More…

imageJess - Paranoid.  I am now 6 years out. Every test has came back clean. I hate using positive and negative. I remember being told I had came back positive to begin with. It just seems strange to hear positive and think it is so negative. Each time I get any new ache or pain the lingering thougt is always there. Is it back? No one knows how this feels. The panic of being sick again. I have gone from sleeping all day long to …More…

imageAnn - May 17, 2017  I know it's been a while since I posted. I've been trying to shake off this funk & it's finally starting to go away. First of all I would like to say Thank you to the Cinco de Mayo lunch Angels. Unfortunately, having chemo that Monday, between sleeping or sitting on the toilet, I was unable to make it. I was there in spirit, they even had a chair dedicated for me. I received the most touching card in the mail, which was signed by all, …More…
