I’ve been breathing deeply and being kind to myself since I got on the scale the other day and saw I was up 2-3 lbs (for no apparent reason, btw). I am not my weight. I feel great and look fine. I am a strong healthy woman. Blah, blah, b... Read more

My son Pat’s scan went well yesterday...status quo..no new growths, minimal shrinkage of existing tumors but minimal growth in a few others...so continue biweekly chem and bimonthly scans. We are all well aware of the bleak 5 year survival ... Read more

Some of my sparkpeeps may remember that I almost lost my dear man five years ago when he got three (!) hospital acquired infections in his brain after a simple out-patient procedure for a herniated disc in his back. It took almost a year for h... Read more
Seriously...a month since my last blog?
Thursday, August 15, 2019      15 comments

Not sure what that’s about as I am here every single day, tracking, spinning the wheels, updating my weight, checking on my Sparkpeeps and reading many, many blogs. Must be a summer thing as this morning I went through my friends list and clic... Read more

Good-ish news at Dana Farber yesterday...the larger ‘spot’ did grow a bit (they haven’t biopsied any of the lung spots so not calling them cancer yet but...) but several smaller spots are no longer visible and NO new growths anywhere. Patrick’s ... Read more
