CP 3 - and an update

Hi. I had the honor of participating in CP3, but for only 2 days.

I have to tell all of you how incredible it was to finallly meet some semicolons!!! Such a wonderful, supportive, loving, caring, amazing group. I am proud to be a semicolon. :)

I told everyone at the CP3. I got scanned for my radiation that will start this week. It showed that the tumor in my right lung has only grown a small amount!! HURRAY! Some the the lung tissue had collapsed on itself, looking like a dark mass; that I "saw" as tumor. The rad onc specialists set me straight!

SO..... I had a phenomenal weekend filled with old friends and new. AND.... flying high after getting some much needed good news from MD ANderson. I am tolerating the xeloda very well. I go back to work tomorrow, and start radiation treatment on Wed.

Thanks to you all for being there. To everyone at CP3 - my high expectations were all surpassed. I am a better person by simply knowing all of you!

Be well. jana

Great news!
I wish I could have made it to the palooza ! I had chemo Wed. And moved into our house on Fri.We are still unpacking . Or should I say my husband is. I am feeling much better today and am now saying "No I don't like that there".
Anyways nice that you got great news to take with you to CP-3
I'll be thinking about you on Wed.
Please keep us posted

Hiya all...this will be short as our wonderfull new friend, suzannchilli(Suzann) has invited the "left overs" from Palooza 3...US to dinner. So I have borrowed some time here to let you all know Jen and I fly out tomorrow morning. I have so much to say and as soon as possible will be here to "mouth off" I would like to say first that I am sad to hear of Nettie passing...I am SO sad as Nettie was my very first contact on CSN...albiet in the chat room.
Sleep peacefully my dear Danette!

I have many words to say to all my semi-colon friends but for now I hope you will all forgive me...time here is restricting me from doing so.
Our love to you all.be safe...be well, Ross and Jen

Jana, That's great news that it only grew a little. I've looked at my scans at times and everything looks like it's trouble to me. That's why I let them do their thing. Sounds the CP3 was fun. I'd like to go some year. Keep up the great work Jana, you're an inspiration to me and many others.
