Semi-Normal Week

That's right- a semi normal week- and I have been doing so much I haven't had time to blog!!
Today Denise and I went to see the Tall Ships at Navy Pier. We had a wonderful boat ride on one of the largest ships "The Windy." It was an absolute beautiful day- it almost made me cry.

Tomorrow I get the results of the Cat Scan and the MRI I had done. So far, I have had 18 chemo appointments. It would be a miracle if the tumors had totally disappeared- but I know this is not possible. I feel like I will have to continue with chemo for a while longer. The neuropathy in my feet has worsened a little, but I don't have it in my hands, yet. I will post the results on the blog- if I can understand what the dr. says. Sometimes he talks in a roundabout way..... and doesn't answer the questions I have. There may be no real answers- as what I am going through is so individualized.

  1. Glad you had a semi normal week and saw tall ships. Someone told me to take 1000mg of calcium and acupuncture for the neuropathy??? Not sure if it would work.

    Thinking about you!!!!
