I’ve had so much going on lately! I feel like I just can’t keep up. I didn’t even mail Christmas cards this year!
I finish my second cycle of Xeloda tomorrow. I can’t really complain with the side effects, I’ve dealt with worse. I’m exhausted and my feet and legs hurt. It’s like walking on pins and needles. I’m handling it and praying it works. After my first cycle of Xeloda (14 days) my tumor markers jumped from 263 to 968. They’ve never been so high. I have new blood work next Friday and I’m hoping to see a drop.
I had a tumor removed from my neck two days after Christmas. My doctor was concerned that it was lymphoma. It turned out to be breast cancer. That was good news. Now I have two new tumors in my neck and one on my jawbone. The one on my jaw bone has caused numb chin syndrome. It’s just like it sounds. My chin and botttom lip are numb.
Last week I woke up vomiting. It turned to blood and I ended up staying in the hospital for a few days. They sent me home saying it was diabetes. The truth was the vomiting is what made my blood glucose rise. They sent me home and then called and said I wasn’t supposed to be released because my oncologist had ordered scans. I told them to just schedule me for the scans and I would come in for them. I’m home now and resting. I have three different scans scheduled for next Monday. I will get the results of the brain scan on Wednesday and the throat and body MRI results will be Friday. Until then it’s another wait and see.
I want to thank you all for the love and prayers sent my way. You all make my life a little brighter! 💕💕
Get out and make some memories!

Recognizing the value and gift of life is a concept so many people overlook. You are wise to view each day as a special moment. A health malady should not be the cause to create this awareness. I also noticed your posts encourage other people “to get out and enjoy.” This shows your true character which speaks volumes about who you really are. Now, be the recipient of the same advice when you decide the time is right. Wishing you many days of positive experiences and much love on your journey through life.
Thank you Doc! I do believe that is the most beautiful comment ever posted on my blog. It’s so true and I am making the most of every moment! 💕
