Back to the realities of cancer. Testing, treatment questions...thus the life of a cancer patient.
Had my mamography today...Stable! It's the next best thing to being told you are CURED!!
Picked Nancy up after testing...went to lunch and spent the afternoon together. Spent sometime talking about what cancer makes us think about...things we can only talk about together. It's a special bond we as cancer patients get to share...aren't we lucky?!?!?
Have the next two weeks to think about my treatment options because at my next appointment we will be discussing my multiple rib fractures and what treatment they think is necessary to combat it, what treatments I am on that are causing them and the extreme pain in my hands. We will be discussing different anti cancer drugs and IV meds to help the bone loss. I am presently treating my bone loss naturally and I believe I am making great progress...Bruno is not so convinced!! Having cancer is a constant battle of cause and affect! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger??? Maybe not so much with cancer!!
The bright spot in my days are times I get to spend with my beautiful granddaughters!! Maddy wasn't feeling well this week so we ran over to help out. Hoping to spend time tomorrow as well. I am looking for a car seat so I can keep it in my car so I can always just go get her and take her with me!! Victoria is wonderful and growing fast. She is so calm and relaxed...eats well and sleeps through anything!! She seems to listen and know my voice already!! Grandchildren.....Such a blessing!! Hearing Madelyn call "Mema, Poppy" it washes away everything else...for the moment. Then....back to reality...you can only ignore cancer for so long. But it helps to have my children and my granddaughters to put it in to perspective...to be thankful for the things I am able to share, things I am able to do...this time I have with them...when I look at the past 2 years and the losses we have witnessed, I can only feel THANKFUL! I know it could have been very different.
As far as foundation work...we really have to get moving! "SANDY" really put a crimp in our fund raising and now we need to get things going. We have a few new people we are helping out and we can use some volunteers who can donate some time or meals. If you are able to help out please email me with specifics of what you are able to do.
Each day more people are diagnosed with cancer...each day I wish I could help more. Please consider helping us ease the burden for a family battling this unfair disease the only way we can...day by day!!
