Here is what is happening....

I make an effort not to make my blog about cancer. However, because I know so many of my readers pray for me and inquire what is happening....I will tell you...
I was supposed to have chemo today, however, as I had feared, my CA # was up again significantly. My doctor feels that is is silly to keep giving me chemo if it isn't helping and why is the CA going up while on chemo?

So, I will be seeing a new oncologist and having a scan in the next two weeks. Hoping that they will be able to pinpoint the problem and give me something that will make a significant improvement.

Am I jumping up and down about this....no. I shed some tears and ate some chocolate. However, as my doctor has assured me, better to "fix" the problem now, then when they no longer have options.

Thank you for caring. I am fine. I have a big God and a loving husband.

Next post will be back to enjoyable stuff, I promise.

Ceekay, thanks for the update. We will definitely keep praying for you. :)

Connie said...

Well, just to show you I understand completely your fears and frustrations - I already cried, and NOW I'll go eat some chocolate.

I've already told you - GOD'S STILL IN CONTROL. Nothing you didn't already know. And I told you John and I are still praying...which you already knew...

I guess the only thing new I had to add was my empathy with you by eating chocolate!

You know I love you.

Dear Ceekay, My prayers remain for you and I so hope they can get to the bottom of the questions. In the meantime, you continue to inspire with your courage and outlook. You are such a stong person and I am going to eat some chocolate for you too.

Thank you for stopping by. How fun that you have an afghan like mine. There is a story behind this one. I actually made it for my grandma in the 70's. It is called Broomstick lace. Now keep in mind, she was a very accomplished crocheter and knitter, so I made this thinking it would never add up to anything she could make. But I gave it to her one Christmas and she displayed it on her green sofa till the day she passed away. At that time, they (family) gave it back to me and I have had it another 18 years. We have enjoyed it, washed it a million times and the thing just won't wear out. I bring it out in the cooler months and it brings lots of comfort of days gone by.

Hugs to you sweet friend and prayers on going!

Oh Ceekay, I so agree with the Dr., best to get this figured out now. I know you are ready to have it all over with, and I will continue to pray. I know the Lord has you in his hands and a complete healing is on the way. Hugs, Marty

Sandra said...

HUGS, Ceekay. Don't give up. Keep the faith, sweety. I will keep praying for you. I have so much faith in prayer. I pray that our Heavenly Father sends you a healing. I'm praying for our Blessed Mother's intercession as well. (HUGS)
I'm glad you ate some chocolate. :) Was it dark chocolate? Dark chocolate is good for us. And you can count it as part of the veggies intake. After all, chocolate comes from a bean. *wink*

Dear Ceekay...

I'm soooo glad you shared about just where you are because if you hadn't I wouldn't know to pray more specifically for your needs.

Thank you for the courage you show. Thank you for your willingness to share with us your faith in our amazing Lord and of your trust in Him. Thank you, too, for allowing us the privelege of praying over you this very day.

I understand you wanting your Blog to be about Happy Things. I do, too. But this week when our little daughter-in-love miscarried our grandbaby I wanted to scream out to God how mad I was... Not at Him...but over the loss. Isn't it great to know He understand exactly where we are and what we need?

Now...when you visit my bloggie next will you PLEASE email me with you address? I want to send something to you...

Love to you...praying all the while~

Rebecca

Shelia said...

Oh, Dear Ceekay! I am glad you're keeping us informed about yourself because you're loved and now we know exactly what to pray for! You are so right - we do have a great God and you're in His hands and that's the best place to be.
I love you, sweet friend.
Blessings,
Shelia ;)

Aloha CeeKay,
I was visiting blogs and came across your pretty fall blog!!!. I sure could relate to this post, I am at home for a couple months of medical leave. I know we serve a big God and he is bigger than any circumstances that may come our way, Please know a lady all the way in Hawaii will be praying for you as well. I enjoyed my visit and will be back to read more.

Blessings of Aloha Lorie

Pudgeduck said...

Sorry CeeKay.. Psalm 23:6.Always praying for you.

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

If it would help, you know we would all be GORGING ourselves with chocolate. Instead, we are hoping and praying your consult with the new doctor offers news of new treatment options for you. Keep the faith and don't ever hesitate to share your difficult hurdles with your readers. We care and are here to "circle the wagons" and show support.

Kathy said...

Well, you already know how I feel about you and all of this cancer nonsense. How many times do you think we've talked about this very thing...5,6 hundred times??? I pray each and every day, many times a day, that the hated CA cells are dying off left and right. I still believe they will do just that. God has answered many prayers since the beginning of this battle and I know there are many more to come. We know our God is in control!
love you lots...Kat

Karen said...

CeeKay.
One day at a time. I wish you were closer. Let's see, where would I take you . . . how about See's candy?!
Thank you for keeping all of us posted. Please continue. You have SO MANY people praying for you. God is going to have to work overtime!
Big hugs. Big smile! Big hugs.
Karen
ps - I only like ONE piece of See's candy - so you get the entire rest of the box! :)
