Diane I hope you are doing okay. Have not seen a post from you for a while. Maybe you are getting your second opinion at MD Anderson. Hope you are getting some answers to your questions.
In one of your previous posts you asked us do something new and share it with you. My husband and I are going to go on a Transatlantic Cruise and go to Bermuda, Scotland, Ireland, England, France and spend a few days in London after the cruise. I was not going to go because I am having a "slow reoccurrence" and will need treatment again. But after much thought, I decided if I go back on treatment......this is probably the best health I am going to be in. I feel wonderful right now, so I decided to go ahead and do the cruise. And enjoy all the beautiful countries.
My brother died of colon cancer, I remember how I wished he had done things and gone places rather than just working until he could no longer do those things.
I will still have my next CAT scan on April 5th, see the doctor on April 8th and leave on the cruise April 9th. Then if I need treatment immediately we will return to Illinois and start the treatment again. Maybe the three areas they are watching will still only show minimal change and I can wait a little longer to start treatment. What ever the plan is we will go with it.
This is my new experience. I will share more about it later. In peace and caring.
