Hey Everybody!
Just a quick update to let you all know I am fine......better than fine actually. The Cyberknife is being classified as 100% successful in destroying the 2 brain mets. They will rescan in 30 days and at that time they will decide on a new chemo regime...if any is even needed. I am still on IV antibiotics at home for 10 days for pnemonia that I got when that Folfox made my immune system crash. I will start to taper off the steroids in 3 days that they had to put me on for the Cyberknife procedure. I have gained 22 pounds from those and have NEVER been so swollen in my life. I HAVE HUGE CANKLES!!! I look like the Pillsbury Dough Boy..LOL....for real....I am a mess..BUT...BUT...BUT..... I did it....suck my Deeeek cancer!!!!!!

I have to recoup now and get this bod back on track but that's doable! Brain mets scared the hell out of me but really it's like getting it in any other organ....just deal with it and move on. That's the plan and I'm sticking with it.

Hey Craig....I have decided in celebration of this accomplishment I am taking the kids to a Cowboys game August 25th. You and Kim get your party pants ready.....I am coming to town! .....BETH????? You game?

CANCER DOES NOT RULE....... WE DO!!!!!

Love you all

Jennie

I've been holding my breath waiting to hear that you are alright and that the Cyberknife went well. I'm so relieved for you. So glad to hear that you still have those a$$ kickin' boots on. Just get some more rest now. I know you'll be marching forward.

Luv,

Wolfen

to hear cyberknife went well and you are on the mend for pneumonia. I was so worried you wouldn't be able to keep that appt, but I should have known better!! Not hell, high water or a pesky little bug would keep you from your mission.

Jennie, just curious...where did you have your cyberknife done and have you also had cyberknife on your lungs?

I have had Cyberknife done successfully 3 times to 3 different areas of the lungs. I will not have CK to lungs again as I am now at the maximum level of scar tissue loss and cannot afford to lose any more without causing a substantial notice in breathing function. SOOOOOO...if I need to address that in the future it would be RFA or ????? Who knows???

Was so great to see a post from you...and SUPER FANTASTIC that all went so well with the cyberknife!!!

Now just rest up and recover from that natsy pneumonia and you will be good to go!

Once that is done just do a few laps in the pool each day and you will get rid of that steroid gain.

Celebrate and then celebrate some more!

Hugs and love,

Marie who loves kitties

Jennie,
You have such an amazing attitude! I am so glad that your cyber knife procedure went so well. I love hearing news like yours. You are a real inspiration to everyone dealing with cancer. I hope you do celebrate and go to a football game. You deserve a big celebration. Thanks for sharing your story! Take good care of yourself! Teri
PS. Thanks for your advice earlier about acupuncture. My husband started and is already feeling relief from his horrible hip pain.

This is fantastic news! Sorry you've swelled like the Pillsbury Dough Boy - I've always wanted to poke him and squeeze him. So maybe it isn't so bad to be like him temporarily - it might get you a few squeezes. ;)

Rest up and get yourself strong again soon.

WHEW!! Now I can breath a sigh of relief, I'm so happy they went ahead and did the cyberknife. Kinda surprised they did with you being so run down. But, Jennie you are one strong girl and came out of this on the winning end!!! Take it easy for a bit, you need to recoup :)

Nice arse kicking- that is great news. Take time to recoup- those cankles can weight but kicking them to the sidelines will be a piece of cake (low fat, carrot probably) in comparison.

Sounds like teh Cowboys could learn a thing or two from you!
