New post at My Journey with Teal....October 15, 2014.

Tuesday, December 22, 2009


Now I know I said I was journaling my cancer on my new blog...but you all gotta hear this. Remember at my last doctor's appointment the news was not good. The clinical trial drug was not working and they were going to start me on a traditional chemo with a booster. I was to wait until I heard from them to tell me when to start.
This past week has been difficult. Although I KNOW I am in God's hands, Christmas is an emotional time and full of memories....well, let's just say my poor hubs has put up with a lot of emotions from me.
I get a phone call this morning from my doctor's office. Answering it, I hear MY DOCTOR. In my head I am thinking, oh, this can't be good.
Well, long story short, the radiology center sent the wrong scan. They did not compare the most recent scan. THERE is STABILITY. NO NEW GROWTH. The drug is working. I don't understand totally why there was confusion. That will be found out more later....but, can you say Merry Christmas Ceekay????
So, tomorrow, I will be in the chemo chair. Getting the same trial for another 3 months. This time there should be some improvement.
I just had to share! God is so good. I am sooooooo happy!

Merry Christmas Ceekay! I'm sending you great big hugs and a warm blanket while you sit in that chemo chair tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you and your husband. Praying for the doctors to have wisdom.

I don't know you and this was the first time to visit your blog.....but MERRY CHRISTMAS CEEKAY! What wonderful news. May you know God's abiding peace this Christmas and please say a prayer for a friend named Mindy facing possible breast cancer...that the lump will be benign.

Ceekay, I'm so late reading this post, but there is a huge smile as I read this. I'm so thrilled that the chemo is working! I hate that you have to go through the treatment because I know it in itself is the pits. But you have to keep the C from winning!
I'm off to read your more recent posts. Sorry I haven't kept up during the holidays....Sarah
