Life keeps moving.....

Went to the oncologist yesterday and it was not the funnest visit.  I will no longer be taking the research drug that I was on.  It is just too hard on my liver.

Sooo, tomorrow, October 31st, the 7th anniversary of my cancer surgery....I will be going on the very first chemo I ever had.  They give it once a week for 3 weeks, one week off.  We are praying that this will knock the cancer back.

I am not happy about this, of course there is some fear, but, I really have no choice.

I am telling you all this because I started blogging AFTER I had this chemo....maybe I will do better than before.  But if it kicks my butt, I won't be able to blog much.  I am hoping that it will be easier as the doctor keeps telling me, but I really don't know.  Please continue to keep me in your prayers.

Enjoy life bloggers.  Don't get upset by the wrinkles and the birthday numbers.   Try to do something worth doing each day, have fun, love your people.......because as I sit in that chemo chair, I look around at all the people that are literally fighting to have more time.  Life is so precious!

AND......for all of you that celebrate Halloween........

Ceekay, you are so right with your life advice. I haven't said this on my blog but my dad was diagnosed with leukemia in June. We've been doing chemo every month since then. He is responding very well thankfully. I do look around while we are in the infusion suite and see some people who are barely hanging on...and some people who always seem to be alone. I'm so thankful to be there with my dad.

I'll continue to pray for your full recovery.

Sweet advice, CeeKay! I'm taking it, too. I think that you are about to prove your doctor correct...it will be easier this time. Praying for you and believing with you for good health. Love, comfort, and that extraordinary peace that settles us down and reminds us Whose we are.

Ceekay, I'm so sorry that the research drug didn't work for you and you now have to have a chemo. It's difficult to really imagine what you had to go through during the last years. All the treatments with their side-effects and all the worries and fears must have been and still be so hard. I keep you in my thoughts and hope that you won't feel too bad and that you can fight the cancer back.
All the best for you and a big hug,
Julia

Oh- Ceekay- I am so sorry that you have to endure one more insult to your body. But, God knows what will work for you and I hope that this is it! I do believe that He created doctors and solutions just as He created everything else. You know that I will be praying for you and try to do even a quick update so we know how you are doing! Love to you, Diana

Carol said...

I'm so sorry to hear this, Ceekay! I won't pretend to know what you are going through or how you are feeling, but just know there are lots of people on your side and sending positive thoughts. My SIL is going through chemo right now and just recently tried the medical marijuana. She got it in suckers and gummy bears which seem to help quite a bit.

We will be thinking about you every day even if you are not blogging.

Hugs,
Carol

Hi Ceekay,
I want you to know that I will be thinking of you as you undergo chemotherapy and I pray that this time it will be easier. I was by my son's side as he went through chemo and I know how difficult it was for him.
Thanks for the advice and encouragement and I hope that you celebrate life to the fullest.

Such good advice you have shared today, Ceekay. I have always been inspired by the way you live life to the fullest despite what you have been going through.
I am sorry you didn't get the news you had hoped for. I will keep you in my prayers as you go through your chemo treatments.

Debby said...

So sorry you have had to battle this so long. I've had cancer but never the chemo. I know I would be scared of it but I would do it. You are brave for sure. Your words are so right. It irritates me to her people whine about their age. They should be so thankful. I will be praying for you. Please keep in touch when you feel like it. (((((HUGS))))) Prayers.

Evening Ceekay, I don't know your whole story with the "C" but I can hear your FAITH speaking! You have words of wisdom...life is too short to be upset with minor things...those who have been diagnosed with "c" (including myself)know what truly becomes important in life! Keep the FAITH, stay STRONG in the Lord. By his stripes you are HEALED. I will be praying for you....Blessings~~~Roxie

Dear Ceekay, this was difficult for me to read. This has been a difficult year and to know that you too are going through this Chemo thing is hard. I pray with all my heart that it goes well for you. We are all with you! Hang in there, dear one! It's going to be alright.
It has to be! We won't let it be any other way!!

I have been following your blog for some time and have probably in the past responded with a comment. Today though I wanted to encourage you as you go through the cruel treatment of chemo. Every day may not be good. But there is something good in every day.
You know your loved ones are there for you but remember we, in Blog land are holding you up in prayer.
