I don’t like to do scans in December. I love the happiness that fills the air this time of year. Bad scans could dampen that. I’m so excited to tell you that 15 rounds of WBR and a CyberKnife session gave me a good brain MRI!! Can we all do a happy dance!?!?!
This doesn’t mean I’m dancing with NED again. I was on Ibrance and Falsodex for the mets to my lung, hip and spine. It did nothing to keep those areas stable. I was on it for four months and my tumor marker went up monthly. My last scan showed progression in all those areas. My oncologist changed my medication to Afinitor and Exemestane two months ago. I have a new PET scan in January to see if it’s working. I’m praying it is. The side effects are easier to deal with than the ones I had on Ibrance. I’m dealing with mouth sores and little bumps that randomly appear in different places. My pain medicine is keeping my spine and hip pain under control and I’m no longer completely exhausted. I’m actually feeling pretty good right now! I feel so blessed to be here for another holiday season. I think my New Years resolution will be to make everyday a holiday!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Life is busy, slow down and spend quality time with your loved ones. Keep your family traditions alive and make memories (they last forever!).
Thank you for all the prayers and love you’ve showered me with over the past 4 (almost!) years. It means so much to me! 💕💕💕
Now I have to share family news! Remember how I wanted to live to be a glamma? Well, now I will be glamma again! Kori and Emily are expecting in May. Jax will soon have a little brother or sister. I’m so excited! I love being a glamma! He will be 2 when his new brother or sister arrives. Look at how big he is!
