One Day we will meet up...we have to! Going to the Mayo has become so routine now. I remember those first appointments as I'm sure you do too when it seemed so awe inspiring and very overwhelming. I have to laugh at myself because my first pre-op surgery day at St Mary's in 2007 we were driving all around the Mayo clinic and Methodist hospital for almost 30 minutes thinking surely St. Mary's was nearby....we eventually found it😀 now I feel I could be a tour guide there!!


Glad to have you with me on this PXA path!! Although we don't know where we will end up..it's a life adventure!!


I wanted to let you know I have not had Avastin yet. Dr. Buckner said it works best when tumor is present. Since its approval I had 2 surgeries with complete resections so that's why they tried other chemo drugs as first line options and was "saving" the Avastin option.


Did you see the Tulip greens already

popping at Mayo....they should be in full bloom when I return May 6.

Happy Spring Dear!!!!

Hi Betsy I know you're working hard on implementing all the new things you've learned about dealing with your chronic pain and making them part of your daily life must require so much from you; but your determination and the love of your amazing support team is so great.  And of course in Him all things are possible...you are such a special person; who rocks...Betsy!!

Hugs,
