SOunds like it and now you can also equate to Scarlett Ohara!!!! You are a true star.June 4, 2009 at 7:42 am #29206devoncatParticipant
I must confess. I am not a true redhead. It comes from a bottle…but in my heart I am a carrot top or as they say in Britain a ginger.June 4, 2009 at 1:36 am #29205lainyParticipant
Hi Kris. I can’t break dance but I could cut a mean rug with the Jitterbug! I mean cut it! Hey, girl, with your attitude you can’t loose. You are in charge, you are positive and redheads will not be told they can’t do. Thinking of you all the time and hoping for the best.June 4, 2009 at 1:28 am #29204jcleggMember
Many, many good thoughts coming your way from here – We are backing you – top of the line in that 1%, I just know it.

I’m feeling so good about your being in charge of your tumors and treatment. I hope the MRI will show good things.

Loving your positive attitude! When sounds so much better than if regarding your surgery. I hope the iv fluids work and that your next cycle of chemo goes well so you don’t have to go back to hospital for the week again.
More positive thoughts coming your way.

My prayers for you. You will be that 1% we all know it. In fact, We all know that in that 1%, you are on the top list for a miracle. I am putting positive thoughts towards you. I even did a little positive dance to enhance the vibe right now! (I used to be a breakdancer/streetdancer)

I am sending good vibes and lots of prayers your way. I really believe you will get your surgery! I was told I was unresectable and had an open and close surgery that she said confirmed it. Well, 8 months later I had a different surgeon that did the resection. So it is possible. I think that with your attitude and youth you will beat this beast. Good thoughts and prayers your way! God Bless,

You go, Kris! I think you’re definitely 100% a 1% person (if that makes any sense). My fingers are permanently crossed for you.

Good luck and keep up the positive attitude. If anyone can beat this, you can. My husband had several different Drs. tell him he was terminal and once one of them told him that 99 % of the people with this disease die from it and my Tom immediately pointed out to him that that meant 1% live and he just had to be one of them. The Dr really didn’t know what to say. So it sounds like you and Tom have the same attitude and I pray you will continue to have the same good results from your treatments as he has. Just keep that tumor in line!!! Take care, MaryJune 2, 2009 at 5:55 pm #29195devoncatParticipant
Thanks for your good thoughts.
My friend is so impressed with how well I am doing…good thing coming from an oncologist.
Scan went well this morning. I got loads of praise from the techs because I was so still that they got “very good” images. Hopefully they will show good stuff and no growth. I think I prayed the whole time I was in the MRI machine. In the morning my friend leaves and I get to have an ultrasound with contrast. The doctor is quite a beast and really has to push hard to get good images because of all my scar tissue. I have been known to cry during the ultrasound. I hope that my liver continues to be functioning well. In a couple of weeks I will get the results about surgery and any growth or shrinkage. It will be nerve wracking but ok.
We have also made plans to get me hooked up to iv fluids the last few days of my chemo cycle since that is when my body becomes stressed and diareah, vomiting and dehydration occur. Hopefully this will prevent another week long stay in the hospital.
I am very positive right now. If the surgeons say no to surgery, I will just have to wait for “it” to shrink some and THEN I will have surgery. I dont think the doctors realise that in my mind I am in charge of my tumor and its outcome. I will not let the little beast keep me from doing what I want…and I want surgery!
