Dear all.

A happy letter for a change from me. My dearest hubby John has bought me a new car as I was having problems getting in & out of our normal car. It is a 4WD Nissan that I just slide in & out of. LOvely isn't he? What a treasure. Also on 5 radiation big zaps for big new tumour in hip joint. Hope this helps mobility as I am now using a cane & wheelchair. Am coming to end of cycle 2 of 6 of Xeloda. Coping well with minimal side effects.

Lovely spring day here "down under". Love & hugs to everyone.

I got a new car(actually used, but new to me) this summer just before I began my daily drive to and from my seven weeks of radiation and it was soooo nice to have the perk of a new vehicle. It is a 99 Lexus and I have never driven such a smooth driving car. We need a boost of one kind or the other many times during treatment. God is good to provide us with these gifts and the dear family members who often make them possible. Happy driving and good luck.
Hugs, Paulette

Dear Pam:
Congrats on new car! Don't we both have beautiful husbands?! Mine bought me an SUV which is so much easier to get in and out of so I don't dread going places now. Only people with painful backs or hips or knees can understand what we mean. God bless you.
Love and hugs, Brenda

Hi Pam,
So nice to read your 'happy letter' - enjoy that car and the weather. Liked to read your comment:"Coping well with minimal side effects." I remember that you were pretty worried about xeloda - may it be just what you need!

Love, Jean

Pam, How exciting!!! My youngest son had a leased chrysler town and country for awhile and I loved that car because I could get in and out so easy. These little jelly bean cars are so close to the ground that we must "fold over" to get in and out...Good to hear you are experiencing few side effects from the new drug. Glad your NZ is showing off with spring like weather, it is cold and dreary here in MO/KS. Lots of love to you, Nancy. PS. Jean and Pam, send your email again. My grandson and I have been sharing a modem and with all the plugging and unplugging, I lost my address book!!! With the moving, I lost my paper back up, here somewhere but I can't find it. Miss you both, Nan

Hi Pam,

I am so glad to hear from you. Congratulations on the new car! No one really understands how difficult it can be to get in and out of a car and with doctor's appointments, treatments and tests it is impossible to avoid vehicles. My aunt and uncle brought a lift chair to me last month. I didn't really want it as I felt that it would make me think of the negative as far as how my mobility has declined. However, now that it is here I love it and it really helps me to be more mobile and less dependent. It is like a motorized recliner that not only goes back, but will literally stand me into an upright position to get out of it. I find that my husband and I are fighting to use it on a regular basis.

Keep up the fight! YOu are an inspiration!

Much love, hugs, and prayers,

Wheeee! Yes, Pam, he's a gem... that's why he deserves you! *grin* You are both very lucky.
So glad to hear the Xeloda is treating you well. I've been thinking of you often and sending you good "stuff"!
Have you come across any new "alternatives" lately?
Be well Pam, go take a nice, deep breath of fresh spring in for me, eh?
