Wish I could do a "reply all" to the post I did last week about Cyber Knife http://csn.cancer.org/node/244921. (Ick I hate that they have "node" in their URL/web address). I tried to reach out to each and everyone of you that sent good thoughts my way but I didn't think this was an option on this site. Apologize if I didn't.

SOOOOO, hate to start a new post because it's the same subject but had my fiducials placed, where they put 4, 24-karat gold markers (the size of earring backs) in my left lung to help guide during my upcoming Cyber Knife treatments. I got bling on my lungs, ha ha! Next step is Thursday for a pulmonary test, torso mold for radiation and a CAT scan to ensure where those gold markers were placed.

Loved my rad doctor. She's got a sense of humor even though she speaks through a heavy Korean accent.

I don't get to this message board every often. I do an RSS Feed where I get updates to my posts, but it's still so hard to manage. Want to reach out to each and everyone of you who is going through all this H&N crap. Prayers and good thoughts to you!

Hi Sonja,

I read where the cyber knife is exact, I guess that is what the bling is for. You will do great, good luck with treatments and stay in touch with us.

You sound like you have a fantastic team working with you ! And I join you in the prayers for everyone going through this H/N crap ! But especially for the ones with mets. Your posts are a true testiment to the human will to fight on ! Girl you are going to come out the other side with more than just Bling ! Wishing you all the very best sunshine ! Also it would be wonderful if you could keep filling us in on what exactly they do...and how. When you're all done of coarse, and feeling up to it. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family ! Katie

You've always been golden inside and out, but now you can prove it!

I'm so sorry you have to go through all this crap again Sonja. Your attitude is great even though you've been dealt a lousy hand.

T's & P's still going your way,
