Dear SallyPa, hi there and what a pleasant surprise to see you again.The news about your Sister is just wonderful and I hope her next set of scans is just as good. I am sorry about your in laws. I feel just as it is sad to see our young ones sick it is sad to live to a nice old age and have to watch suffering as well. Wishing you and yours a healthier 2013 and as you know, Be Strong!
its been a while since i have been able to write. some reasons are good others not. the good is my sister is doing well. she completed her oxiliplatin-xeloda regimine in august. so far with the exception of a couple small spots in her lungs everything is as good as can be expected. we all know you are never out of the woods with this disease. it is constantly trying to regenerate itself. right now drs are in a wait and see mentality. she will have another scan end of feb or early march and we pray it will be good news. we have been enjoying quality time together since her side effects from the chemo have subsided. our sister came to visit for christmas and it was great that my sister was healthy and vibrant for our visit together. no chemo or surgeries this time. on the bad side my mother and father in law have been consuming much of our time now. he has stage iv colon cancer and has been in and out of the hospital and my mother in laws memory is getting worse so we are there a lot of the time trying to keep them as healthy as possible. they are both in their mid 80’s. just wanted to let you all know that even though i dont write often i am still praying for everyone affected by this disease. i hope we all have a happy new year and pray that 2013 brings a cure. happy new year.
