Hi guys, Tiger here, I hope you are all doing ok, I am on cloud nine right now, I had my cat scan and my onco called last night, the two tumours on my liver have shrunk!!! yeeha!! He said not alot but a noticeable difference since my last ct. So now i plod along for three more courses of chemo then another ct in nine weeks to check progress. There is light at the end of the tunnel, at first when this all started in Jan 99 I was figuring I would be long done by now, by now I am realizing it is a long road if you really want to fight, so i am now going into my 11 th month of chemo, Hopefully by spring when the flowers are in bloom ,I will be in bloom too!! That will be my goal, get the dark cold winter over with, and be well in spring to enjoy the colors. Thank you all for always being there and letting me vent.

Take care and keep the faith, Love Tiger xoxoxox

Oh Tiger, I just read your post about your tumors have shrunk!!GOD does have his loving arms around you. Maybe this winter will not be so dark and not so long. With a spirit like yours, you can make the flowers bloom before Spring. Start an indoor window box and watch for those promises of Spring to bloom in your window this winter. I am just awed by the strength all of our CSN friends express. We are stronger than we ever thought we could be. Continue to pray, because GOD is AWESOME.... Your Friend, Nancy

Dear Tiger
I am really pleased that you are winning your fight! Keep going! I have a friend who had chemotherapy for 2 years, and is alive and well 10 years later. She is an inspiration to us all.

I love you and all the ladies on our website. I wish we could have a party.

PAT

Hi Everybody!

I saw my oncologist last night and the lump and 'thickening' under my arm has gone right down! I have had just two chemos (taxotere and epirubicin), so that is as good as it gets! Of course I've still got some way to go, but I went to Mass this morning in thanksgiving, and I prayed for all of us, for those who love and support us, and for our doctors. We can win this fight with love and prayers!

Love to you all, PAT
