Hi Bagface,

Sorry it took so long to reply, but honestly...I kinda forgot I even made this post.  I remembered today and checked it and there were all kinds of replies that I haven't responded to.  So sorry eveybody.  Chemo brain.  I like that better than senility.

 

I've had 5 chemo treatments thus far and go in this morning for my 3 month CT scan to see if it did any good.  I'm hoping it did.  It will be what it will be.  Stll fighting and still hoping and I thank you all for your support.

Bagface,   Thanks.  I do too.  Will have to wait until  Monday to find out.

I am praying your scans are clean! Telling you to not worry thru the weekend is useless because all of us with the big “C” know how agonizing the wait can be! 

Hugs!

Thanks, Candy!  I appreciate your empathy.  I know you've been through it too... more times than me.  I'll make it.

Hugs to you too.

Linda

Hi.  Thanks for asking.  I'm doing okay.  My latest scans showed that the tumors shrunk a bit, so that's good anyway.  How long they continue to do so is anybody's guess.  That's how cancer is.  After that, who knows?  Immunotherapy, probably.  Will cross that bridge when I come to it. 

How are YOU doing?  Catch me up a little.  Been a while since we talked.

Weirdnewlife-Glad to hear that the tumors have shrunk! Hope this keeps going in the right direction!

Bagface... Thank you so much!  I'm hoping so too....  Cancer is a weird thing.  You just never know how it's gonna go....and, unfortunately, neither do the doctors.  We all just cross our fingers and hope.
