19 and counting...

I had my appt. with my oncologist last Friday. He described my condition as "stable." Not what I really wanted to hear.....the tumors are about the same and no new ones have developed. I am back on chemo- 2 more weeks on, off a week, 3 more weeks, then ?.... On Thur. Denise and I are going to see my dr. at Rush who I saw last in April. I just want to make sure they are not missing anything or maybe there is a new drug out there with less side effects. Being tired, nauseous and lathargic were my major issues this weekend and today.

I was fortunate that I got to see my friend Kim from AZ for a couple hours this Sunday. She and George, her husband, came in to see George's mom and family. It is so hard to say goodbye after I see her. She is the one who started this blog and made all the wristbands. If you haven't gotten a wristband- they are going fast and I only have a few left. If I fail to give you one, I apologize! I have chemo brain and the papers to prove it....

Keep on prayin'


  1. Sorry that you didn't have better news Helene. But I guess stable is better than more and bigger tumors??? Still sending my thoughts, prayers, and positive energy your way. Just think, bunco starts in a couple of weeks, so you will have a night of laughs!!!!!

  2. Bunco...I want to play bunco!!! So good to see you! Thanks for a fun time! Looking forward to many more!!!
