Sooo, I will be back on Xeloda (he prefers that to 5FU with the pump for me, thinks it works better, since it's taken over 2 weeks verses a couple of days of chemo fluids)and Avastin again, (I had asked my heart doctor to be taken off of the blood thinners for the heart due to my upcoming colonoscopy last month so can go back on Avastin). He wrote the surgeon while I was in the office to see if he would remove the large tumor from my liver after a bit of chemo, I believe he would like to have my ovaries and other woman parts removed as there appears to be another one hanging around there again, and he said the tumor cells do like to hang around there in women with colon cancer. Heck I went through menopause in my 40's before cancer, didn't have much of a use for them anyway.
So, things will remain pretty much the same for me health wise as that chemo (xeloda) and Avastin did well for me before without side effects, then hopefully surgery on liver and colon and ovary parts. The lung he wasn't worried about too much as he said it is still small and the last time I did chemo, they calcified and he thinks it will do so again to this one (the calcification).
And that's my doctor visit, should be back on the chemo by the end of this week.

Clift my friend, you have no idea how much it means to me that you stopped by to give me your encouragement, thank you dear, thank you. And well, that bucketlist is going to take sometime to fill, so I got to keep hanging around right?
