    Oh Jennie.....
    Hey....we are in this with you!!!

    I had read about TrueBeam radiation. A number of places use it. I have no idea if it works better than other radiation, but it would be worth a look in to it. Maybe your oncologist could find out for you......heck don't most of these docs know (of) each other, or about what's happening at other centers.

    Thinking of you at this time, too, with the loss of your brother-in-law.

    Thinking of You
    Sorry to hear your results. When you "kick" use steel toe boots. They are very effective.

    Please keep us updated.

    Think big
    G'day mate,
    Why do we keep getting picked on. How many times do we have to pick ourselves up and prepare to do it all again. I remember an old cartoon with two scientists watching a rat going thru a maze. At the end of the maze is a rat trap and one scientist says to the other "who said anything about it being fair".
    Yesterday I went fishing in my tinny. The night before I rigged all of my gear because my hands don't work so good any more. Putting my rods in the boat and lost my balance. Pinned my self in the webbing between my thumb and forefinger with a hook . It broke the line so I finished packing the boat went inside and yanked it out with pliers. Went out in the morning ,it was a holiday weekend in aus. Got terrorised by ten million jet skiers,caught a heap of fish. Got back to the ramp in the afternoon,could hardly walk,needed the help of a good samaratin to get the boat back on the trailer. Back home ,wash the boat,clean the fish,stagger thru a shower and collapse in bed at seven pm. All night I dream,of what,winning the lotto and buying a bigger boat. The spirit is strong but the body is week. Just as well we get by on spirit. Jennie your spirit shines like a beacon,hugs and lots of luck.Ron.

    Hey Jennie, Dang. To tell

    Hey Jennie, Dang. To tell you truth, I didn't want to open your "Update" post, I was simply afraid of what it was going to say. Rick and I are so saddened to hear that you have yet another fight on your hands. Sigh... :-(

    All our best to you as you start the battle up once again, take care,

    Rick and Cynthia

    Aw I'm so sorry
    Hi Jennie,
    Haven't posted for a while but thought I might give you a shout. I am so sorry for your reoccurrence, it sucks big time. I too have mets in my lungs and now liver. I had four on the right and one on the left. I had three RFA -Ed and Stereotactic radiation on the other two. The first of the two was near an artery so RFA was out because of the artery cooling off the burn. I just returned from Seattle last week where they radiated the last one, hopefully it'll work. I am still on folfiri also. I don't know if this helps you any but my heart goes out to you and hoping for the best!
    Much aloha

    I am so sorry to hear about the recurrence. You can do this! Keep repeating the mantra "I can do this". It will help get you through. I did Folfox and I know many people on here have. It worked well for me.

    I'm so sorry to hear about the recurrence. Like everyone has said, and I will echo, you are such an inspiration and such a fighter; this is just another 'obstacle' in the fight. You will be in my prayers.

    Hugs,
