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

    Oh, Jennie, 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

    So happy
    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.

    So glad to hear that your procedure was successful and you are doing fine (was waiting to hear how things were). What a way to celebrate with a big game - you deserve it. Keep your great spirit girl - it becomes you :)

    Dear Jennie
    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
