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

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.

I am honored to call Claudia a friend.  I'm sending all my positive mojo, good vibes, and powerful energy that the detox and the xeloda work miracles! 

 

New Flower, thank you for keeping us updated.  I know you have your own issues to deal with, the appreciation is deep.  How are you feeling?  And what is happening with your own treatments?

Hugs,

Linda

Dear Olga,

I do hope that the detoxifying of her liver works.  Sending positive energy that it will help and that Xeloda removes the cancer from her liver.

Thank you for the update.

Chenheart has always been such a voice of reason on this board. Always a bright spot when you find a comment from her on a thread. So sad that she is going through so much pain. Praying for healing and strength and peace with whatever will be.

Olga, thank you so much for the postings.  I have been off of the boards for a while, and have had Chenheart on my mind for months.  She was one of the first to listen to my cancer story and respond, and I have felt her presence from that day forward.  Please pass along to Claudia my hopes and prayers are with her each and every day.  She is such a strong believer, and there are so many who cherish their relationship with her.  She has been my strength, and for now I am sending all I have her way.  Be brave, dear Chenheart, and know that you are being raised in prayer by many.  This makes me so sad.

I sincerely HOPE all the test results qualify you for the clinical trial. And I continue to HOPE for our dear Claudia.

Kindest regards, Susan

The worse my results the more chances to be quilified. I want good scans, the Sponsor wants to test a "measurable disease".

I spoke with Claudia today

She is fighting, tired and in a good spirit.

SoCal girls stay turned, who knows maybe we will have a spa day too

I want you to have a good scan.  There will be other trials in the future to qualify.  I hope with this one you are not accepted because there is no measurable amount of cancer they can find.

 

As always, I wish Claudia the best.

 

Wish I lived in SoCal but I as far away from there as one can be in the USA.

 

Gentle hug to you,

 

Doris

Olga,

Thanks for keeping us updated.  You amaze me with how you keep up with everyone while struggling with your own journey.  Please tell Chen Heart (Claudia) she is in my thoughts and prayers.  I'm so sorry to hear she is having such a hard time.  By all the love showed here from tons of old friends and new ones shows how much we think of her.  Hoping her pain is under control soon.

I am praying for you as well Olga, you are always in my thoughts.  You have been a rock for me in the past and I'm so grateful.  I am hoping everything goes your way.

 

(((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))

Terry

 

PS: It was nice to see so many familiar faces replying about Claudia.  Sometimes I really miss the old board...................
