My husband, Larry, was diagnosed with Stage IV EC last June. Details of treatments are in the About Me section. He had a CT scan Friday and the report we got yesterday afternoon was great! "Dramatically improved" He'll have a PET scan in Sept and a chemo break til at least then. He had an unplanned chemo break during Jan-Mar when he had to have a completely out of the blue quadruple bypass surgery in Jan and pneumonia in March. So, he is excited about a break with, hopefully, no problems.
I'm done with chemo for BC!!! I finished my last of 16 sessions this afternoon and got a balloon, shirt, certificate, and song from some of the staff! I see a neurologist tomorrow about the neuropathy. Thursday, I see the radiation oncologist and find out about the radiation plan and then go get IV fluids to help with side effects and feeling better. In between, I plan on resting and getting ready for the trip. Surgery is scheduled for June 28 and radiation (6 weeks of 5 days a week) will follow healing from surgery.
If all goes well between now and Friday, we leave then (June 8, our 49th !!!!!! wedding anniversary) to go to WA and meet the 3 month old twins!!! -- and, of course, visit with everyone else. Can't wait to hold those babies!! (Lots of !!! today ) Twins are doing great!! If you remember our story, one was a heart baby and had to have open heart surgery at 1 month. She is fine and caught up with her sister now. So many blessings and prayers answered!!
We continue trying to live as normal a life as possible and keep making very short term and longer term goals. After this trip to our son's family, we have a vacation scheduled for the first part of Sept.
We are so grateful and thankful. Thank you all so much for your prayers. We really believe that has played a big part in getting us to this point. And, please, keep them coming.
