Something personal...

Yesterday, I was informed that my wife's cancer had gotten larger. In two months of treatment, there was no progess. On 07 February 2009, my wife entered the hospital complaining of extremely low energy and she could not stop throwing up. In fact, she was throwing up what could only be described as feces. By the 09 February 2009, we knew it was cancer. She had a tumor the diameter of a baseball and eight inches long in her colon. It had effectively block her colon. The tumor was removed and she began chemotherapy. After 6 months, she was considered to be in remission. On 06 December 2009, she learned that the cancer had come back.

What a Great Day

Well, as of Sunday I have been on Hospice for 1yr and still going strong, and We still havent figured out a day to celebrate yet. My wife and I got a visit from the Breavement Counselor yesterday and that went okay, tho there was some crying. But there was a lot of laughter to and my wife realized that everything she is feeling is normal given the circumstances. We also found out it is common for friends to distance themselves from us, wheter it is because they dont know what to say or do, or because they cant handle the reminder of their own mortality. But we had a good time and it was good for us to be able to learn more about what others have experienced.

Thank You, Avatar!

So, this morning I got to experience my very first MRI. Head and neck. I had read the accounts of a few folks who had their own MRI's. I have very sensitive hearing, and I am claustrophobic. I had heard about the earplugs, headphones, and the option of listening to music. I was fearful going into this thing.

The technicians were very kind and supportive. They did ask if I had ever had an MRI before, but they didn't say very much about how the procedure would work. They handed me earplugs, noting that the machine was not large enough to allow for headphones, so there would be no music to pass the time. They said that if I needed anything, all I had to do was speak, and they would hear me. They told me to lie still and not swallow or cough while the noise was going on, and told me I'd have about 20 minutes worth of scanning, a brief break while they injected me with a dye and then another 9 minutes or so of scanning again, for contrast.

what should i expect from chemo?

Hi! i am going thru 12 weeks of Taxol once a week treatments. 12 weeks of cytotan, 5-fu, adriamycin mixed every 3 weeks. I have had 1 treatment so far i feel a little tired, bloated some D but not too bad! Does it stay around the same or does it get worse please help me i am nervous. I noticed that most of the women get surgery first and where i am being treated they do surgery last i wonder why!

Living without a father is hard. Harder than anyone would think.

A Song to Bring a Smile to Your Day

Good Morning Starshine By Oliver James 1969

Good morning starshine
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy gloop gloopy
Nibby nobby nooby
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba dabba
Le le lo lo
dooby ooby walla
dooby abba dabba
Early morning singing song

Good mornin' starshine
There's love in your skies
reflecting the sunlight
in my lovers eyes

Good morning starshine
so happy to be
My love and me , as we sing
Our early morning singing song
