Stable!

Thank you all so much for the prayers! They worked!! Dr. told me today , basically stable. By blood markers they can tell the Pancreas is SLIGHTLY smaller, and spot on liver a tad bigger, but not crazy concerned. The thing most needing attention is apparently I'm anemic . We switched around some medicine. Dropped one, and added iron pills for the anemia. Who knows? I might get a rush of energy when the anemia goes away. I MIGHT have the energy to actually clean my room, which includes folding about 6 loads of laundry. I've literally been putting this off for WEEKS. But the piles...

Today

Good Morning ,

I'm headed to UVM Medical today, to meet with my Oncologist . They'll check the markers on my blood. The standard initial test to see if white and red counts are up or down. All I need is "stable,' and I'm happy. Yes, if it did shrink, that would awesome, but that is highly unlikely. Please, if you have a second this morning, if you could throw a prayer my way, I'd really appreciate it. Love You!

Almost as good as pumpkin spice coffee!!

Saw the Dr. today. He had the results from the CT scan I had on Friday. Funny, he was running a little late, so he popped his head in the room and apologized, and, said he'd say this....that he didn't have BAD news. Nice .

So, incredibly, the tumor on my pancreas shrunk!! Just a tiny bit, but it did shrink. Now, the tiny spot on my liver got a TINY bit bigger. But it's not as concerning as the pancreas . And I DO have some options. They could do a procedure to burn the liver spot off, but the concern with that, is that sometimes spots that are microscopic now (can't even see them),...

When one can't sleep, one shall write.

i can't believe summer is over. Well, officially we have a few more days, but for all intents and purposes...it's gone. It amazes me how every year within that first week after school starts, bam, seasons have changed. It gets chilly at night, and could still hit 80 during the day. Can we just STOP time, and keep it like this? I think the reason I don't like Autumn, is it means winter is coming. Never been a big fan of winter. Even as a little kid. I might make it down the hill out back on my sled maybe twice, then I was done. Back inside to disrobe, and my mom had me bundled up...

State of health

First, I'm wearing a pair of jeans size 1. The other pair I bought yesterday are zero's. I had to go out for new (well, new from Good Will) yesterday, because the smallest I had were 4's, and they were falling off of me. Odd though, I gained almost 3 lbs in 2 weeks, which is good. Went to Dr. today, they were happy. All of my blood "markers" look good, and they're really happy. It SEEMS as if that tumor is just sitting there. Not causing any trouble, but JUST to be on the safe side , going to get that CT Scan in a couple weeks....get a good look at that thing. He really doesn't...

Family

I've been thinking a lot lately about family. And you know, there are many definitions for that word. And in all of them, I have been truly blessed. First, let's talk blood family. I have 4 grown siblings. I've seen what happens to some other families . The parents pass away, and little by little the kids just stop staying in touch. Or, all that happens is the call on Christmas, IF that. That didn't happen to us. Yes, my illness has had something to do with it, but even before that, we kept in touch. Phone calls end with "I love you". And, we see each other when we can. But...

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Well, it sort of is. I hate that summer is ending, but it's a good thing the girls are getting back to school. They were getting itchy. And, as much as I love them, it will be nice to have the house to myself for the first half of the day. I might even get some cleaning done, and as daddy said, the less time they're in the house , the less time they have to make a mess!! Lol

It's Celia's first year of high school....yup, 9th grade. So hard to believe!! And, she made varsity cheer!!...which means practice almost every day. But honestly, who'd have thought that I would be the mother...

Life goes on.....

I love my daughters so very much. Each in their own way, they each have their own, unique personalities. My youngest I think doesn't want to grow up. 12 going on 10. I don't mean intellectually , she does very well in school, but she just still likes doing kid stuff. Her voice still sounds like a kid, and she loves her sports, little league and basketball, and she loves just running around all day. She's my baby, and keeps me feeling young most of the time. But sometimes I start thinking how I may not still be around to see her graduate. Then I start thinking how she might still be...

I WAS asleep, until...

Those darn kids. Midnight, and they're still tromping through the house, laughing as loud as they can. Hey, it's summer, AND Friday night, so why not, right? Well, maybe because Mom is sleeping, and has to work early in the morning. Grrr ...I've already taken my sleeping pills to go to sleep the first time. Cant take more.....so guess I'll write a little in my blog:)

Go figure, it's supposed to rain over the weekend. Yuck. That cancels a LOT of things I still want to do this summer. Outside stuff. Could do Shelburne Museum, run from house to house with an umbrella. But, maybe...
