HEALTH UPDATE: CT last week shows no change in the tumor monster. Still hanging around at about 6×5 cm. Not bad considering it started at 22x16x18! Much of the same these days although I’ve been experiencing more severe fatigue. My hemoglobin is low. The red flags are flying in my mind. I’m working on eachContinue reading “How it started. How it’s going.”

A letter to the tumor monster
HEALTH UPDATE: Doing well. Meeting with a surgeon about my esophagus issues this week. Scanxiety sets in for my 9 week scan next week. Insomnia is common these days. Constantly emotional about, well, everything. I’m okay. Ramblings… Dear Tumor Monster, First of all, fuck you. You came into my life uninvited, you total piece ofContinue reading “A letter to the tumor monster”
HEALTH UPDATE: Some days I’m great. Some days I say out loud, “I feel like I am a cancer patient”. I have had increasing neuropathy lately. My feet are consistently tingly and I’m used to that. Some days, my legs are like jello. I’ve had several viruses, shared by my beautiful daughter and her peersContinue reading “Happy Thanksgiving!”
HEALTH UPDATE: Scan week! I really need to count how many I’ve had. I’ve been blessed with the word “stable” for months on end. Will tomorrow continue the trend? Followed by my 46th, or is it 47th? immunotherapy miracle concoction infusion on Wednesday. Who’s counting anyways? I’ve had pretty consistent challenges, which in perspective areContinue reading “Cheers!”
Thank you, God!
HEALTH UPDATE: I’m itchy. It’s always hard to know where my symptoms are coming from. Treatment 4? Today. The beat goes on. Ramblings… I should be used to this by now. Used to this place. Used to the sick people and their brave companions that face this hell with their person. Used to constantly wonderingContinue reading “Thank you, God!”
Shaken, not stirred…with a twist of fate.
HEALTH UPDATE: I’m mostly boring now with little change. My 20 something-ish CT scan yesterday showed no change from the scan before and no cancer spread. The tumor monster has dwindled from the size of a small football to a round-ish egg size. Truly and incredibly amazing. A medical miracle, if you will. My legsContinue reading “Shaken, not stirred…with a twist of fate.”
HEALTH UPDATE: I think I’m ok?! Plugging away. Still having immunotherapy transfusions every three weeks. Labs are good with a few things off but not enough to be of concern. Hint: I’m always concerned. Lol. Next scan is in August! Ramblings… Life is insane. I’m in this weird limbo. I decided it was just timeContinue reading “Hurry Up”
HEALTH UPDATE: It’s treatment day! My 40th treatment of immunotherapy! Still kicking ass. F you cancer! I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy a few weeks ago. My colon is free of any polyps or concerns, yay! My endoscopy lead to a new diagnosis of Barrett’s esophagus. I have yet to be consulted as to whatContinue reading “take time”
HEALTH UPDATE: All good news. I had a biopsy of the tumor monster last week. I spoke with my oncologist about the results and there was NO CANCER in the tissue that was taken out. HOWEVER, there is no way to know if I am, as a whole, “cancer free”, unless the entire tumor isContinue reading “Keep Treading”
When survival isn’t enough
HEALTH UPDATE: By the Glory of God, I remain stable. I will have a biopsy on Wednesday to see what’s going on with the tumor monster. Please pray for no complications. Ramblings… Happy Easter! A blessed day of praising Jesus and how he died for us and has risen. My heart is full. In betweenContinue reading “When survival isn’t enough”
