March 8

Hello all,

 I just got a little note and would like to share.

Claudia has started her cycle # 3 with Xeloda today. It is too early to understand weather or not it has been working. 

She is also attending sessions at Santa Barbara Wellness Center. Your positive thoights and prayers have been helping her to stay strong.

I personally have been through few challenges during past 3 weeks. Today signed up for a Clinical trail study with an experimental drug BKM120, a lot of tests are coming during next week.

Hugs

Olga

i wish I had better news to share. Results are in and they are not good.

The scan showed (she wrote):
that the cancer almost completely involves my liver. We are trying the
Xeloda. The doctor is very shocked and very worried about me"

If you read this message, please check-in and use all of your spiritual power, power of words and prayers to help Claudia turn the corner in this unfair fight. She has been a member of our CSN board since 2003 and helped and touched life of everyone on this board.  I do believe our positive energy and prayers will help her going through this critical time.

I modified my 1-week old thread, because it easy for me, sorry folks

February 16

I know many of you have been keeping Claudia close to your heart. Please continue to do it as she is going through difficult time.  We have exchanged several messages . While she is currently on a two-weeks break from Chemo before changing therapy to Xeloda, she got UTI , was on antibiotics which she had to stop due to horrible stomach pain. The origin of pain is under investigation and PET scan was performed yesterday. She is on pain medication, very tired from various doctors' appointments. Please pray for stable status and  no new findings on report.

We all miss our dear Chenheart. She gave such good common sense advise and was often the word of reason. She is just one of those kind gentle people that if we are lucky we get to know and love.
My heart goes out to her and her family.
I will keep her in my prayers that can find the source of her pain and put an end to it. Also prayers for her deaer Reggie.

Hopefully the Xoleda will help her.  Those nasty UTI's seem to just wear your system down even further.  I will keep her in my prayers and think of her all the time. Thanks for updating I just feel so bad for her, she has been through so much.

Hugs and prayers,

Our dear Chen is so very much beloved here. I hope for her continuously... while waving both magic wands, one in each hand. (Yes, I now have two actual magic wands. One I acquired, the other was a gift from a precious friend. The very first one was merely imaginary and 'invented' for use here on the Board.)

Today, will increase my magical wishes for Claudia. Sending some your way, too. XO

Kind regards, Susan

BELOVED Claudia... Such difficult news to digest after all she has been thru. I pray that Claudia is in good spirits, and remaining strong.My thoughts and prayers go out to her beloved Reggie, and Siobhan -- probably both worried sick, and besides themselves.

Strength, Courage and HOPE for our ChenheartInnocent

I"m new to the board and came across this thread about chenheart. 

She sounds like a real trooper with a heart of gold for all the pain she is going through and with all the positive support and prayers of the people of this thread will help her get through this.

My thoughts and prayers are also with you Chenheart.  God Bless

Oh Olga, 

How disappointing this news is, as I had hope with everyone else that there would be improvement in her condition. 

If only they could find away to stop the spread of this disease.  How sad her Reggie must be feeling.

Claudia is one remarkable lady and I do hope the Xeloda might put a break on it.

She is always on my heart, always in my prayers and always on my mind.  I love her a ton and I will lift her in prayer of course asking that this be removed from her in the fashion we all desire but if that is not to be what is to come than I ask that she be given comfort, peace and the knowledge that she is GREATLY LOVED!!!!

Thank you for the update.   I pray for Claudia daily.  I have been worried about her since she has been so quiet and have been thinking of her a lot.   She is such a gentle, wise woman and I miss hearing from her.    I will continue the prayers for her and her wonderful Reggie.   I sure hope she knows how many people love her...

Certainly, not the results anyone had hoped for... (deep, deep sigh)

Will continue to HOPE, with all my heart & soul, for our beloved Chenheart to catch a break. That the xeloda will be of maximum effectiveness. A magical miracle.

Kind regards, Susan
