l can wait to hug you ladies again, but it sure is tough not socializing like usual!
Hope everyone is doing okay.

John and I have had a rough few weeks, as we lost our elderly kitty, and have had some friends lose family to c19. It's so hard to not be able to hug those you love when they are suffering. So please keep safe, and stay home, mask up, and "wash your hands, Roger!"

❤️❤️❤️

Jen

So sorry to hear about your kitty - it is so hard to lose one if our 4 legged family members.
This is definitely a strange time. I guess I made it back from TX before things really got bad. My flight home was probably the best I have ever had - only 9 people on the flight and everyone was cleaning their own area. That plane was Probably never cleaner! We have been blessed - our area of SW Florida has not been hit hard like the Miami dade area on the southeast coast. But I guess we are all not totally out of the woods yet.
truthfully - I have really enjoyed being home and not having anything to do or anywhere to go! Four of our cruise have been cancelled thus far - and I am glad not to have to pack another suitcase!! But I am definitely not complaining since there are so many that have lost jobs Nd lost loved ones.
I think this would be a lot harder if it were not for technology. I really enjoy seeing how creative everyone has become. Wishing everyone well and continue to be vigilant. Love and hugs - Candy P

PS - all my tests / blood work looked good. I’m officially on a once a year followup with my onco.

Jen', so sorry to hear about the loss of your fur baby. I miss my Sweet Pea every day. I will probably have a new foster next week. It's always nice to have a furry friend to hang out with, esp right now.

Candy, I'm glad all is well your way!

I have been missing my family, although we have had a few socially-distanced outside only, or in the car visits, it's not the same.

I hope everyone else is doing well~

Take care,

Terri

Hey all -

Just a quick update. Tumor markers are climbing, we don't know why. PET early Monday, results with Dr. early Tuesday. Possible change in treatment (again)? Who knows? I don't expect the news to be great, but I am prepared with whatever comes. Not giving up yet!!

I will check back in when I know more.

No pity, but prayers are always welcome!

So sorry to hear - but praying that results of PET will be positive and they can figure out why the markers are higher. Keep us posted as we all love you! I will ALWAYS remember your thoughtfulness & kindness when I was first diagnosed and underwent surgery. You will probably never know how much that meant to me and how much our little central Texas group has helped me. Lean on us now. I may not be in TX any longer but You have my number - call if you ever just need to chat! I will always be here for you! Sending hugs and prayers. Candy

Thank you, Terri! You still doing real estate? If so, hubby and I would like you keep an eye out for property in Taylor, Coupland, and other small communities that may have reasonable prices. We are hoping to spend 50 to 60 K on land. We would like 5 acres, but may not be able to get it at that price.

Thanks!

Update on the PET results. Not good news but could be worse. The tumor on my liver is growing; my liver is swollen and angry (I don't blame her; I would be too), I have new tumors in lymph nodes surrounding the liver and new tumors in lymph nodes in my chest. The tumors in the lymph nodes in my neck have increased in size as well. Two steps forward, three steps back. Sigh.

With all this going on, I feel fine. Imagine that. I start my third treatment protocol in less than a year on Thursday. Eribulin - back to the infusion room; every week for two weeks, then a week off. Rinse and repeat. I've read that the infusion only takes up to 10 minutes. Must be some powerful stuff. I told the doc I wanted something strong enough to kick cancer's butt but not so strong that it kills me before the cancer will.

Let's see what happens. I'm been very lucky so far in how I'm handling treatment. I hope that continues, but hubby and I fear it's about to get real. So …. pulling on the big girl panties and ready for a fight.

Keep the prayers coming. Miss you ladies!!

I never thought I would see the day where I welcomed chemo! Things change when you are fighting for your life. I'm not done yet. We still have several options to choose from; over twenty treatment options, including genetic and immunotherapy. We are hanging on to these for later.

Anyway, I listen to happy songs all day, dance every day, and focus on staying happy and upbeat. I work at it …. and it helps a lot.

Thank you, Terri! Chemo today was uneventful … other than I got a bad headache and a touch of upset tummy. The nurses warned me about the headache The tummy, I'm not surprised. Even though I still have almost a whole bottle of the anti-nausea stuff they gave me months ago, they just prescribed a new medicine that works fast and dissolves on your tongue. An omen of things to come? Probably. I've been so lucky up to now. Odds are I will really lose my hair this time. We will know in another two to three weeks.

Vicki, I hope your SE's are minimal, or better yet, non-existent, while killing Valdemort(?).

Jen', I hope all is well. You have been unusually quiet:)

I have been busy training (or being trained) by my new adopted pup, "Buddy". He is a mess, but we are officially stuck with each other! He is a good walking partner and is great company. He makes me go for a walk every day....I can't tell him no! As it should be. LOL.

I sure do miss my Grandkids. We should be having sleepovers, playing games and having fun. That has been the hardest part for me. I feel like they will be grown up before we can all get together again. But, I know we are all in the same boat.

What have y'all been doing to stay busy?

Stay well, y'all. I can't wait for our next get together!!!
