The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

MexicoHeather - Hope your massage is amazing and your visit with your son is as well.

Just thought I'd update this group on what's been going on with me. Had my pet scan on 8/12, and got the results on 8/16. The SBRT in May worked on the lime sized liver tumor and lymph nodes, but unfortunately, the Xeloda failed me and there was new growth - small spot in liver & a different lymph node area. I did another 5 rounds of SBRT to attack those spots, and just started Gemzar today. The last month has been insane as an AC water leak also caused me to have to redo the entire floor of my condo right when all of my colleges were starting. Fun times, Fun times, lol! Hope all is well with everyone!

Update part 2 -- Having just finished radiation, I expected that my tumor markers would flare in my latest labs. Instead, they came down from 24.3 to 20.7. They've typically been very reliable though they've been in the normal range with small amounts of cancer, but its the lowest its been since April 2015 when I hit my lowest during NED of 19.9. That is incredibly encouraging to me! Gemzar so far has had some mild nausea and fatigue along with headaches (but I get those pretty regularly anyway). But so far.....its been manageable, and I've worked everyday, etc. Very thankful!

Yes. Thanks for the update. We didn't get the hurricane, but you still had to dry out. Big sigh. I hope everything is going well musically for your students.
