SUPER attitude Kelly and do let them "hit" you as hard as they need to while the cancer is in confusion.  I HATED to be told every 60 or 90 days that it wasn't gone yet (lymphomas) and that we would continue (for more than one full year, every three weeks)....I so-o-o wanted/needed a break.  I was only 43 and treatments made me very sick (before the days of new meds to help with side affects) but they kept extending it for another round.  I now thank that young doctor for pushing me as that first remission was for 11 years and the technology changed during that time  so when it was retreated at 11 years, at 15 years and at 22 years and I'm still here (30 years thisThanksgiving 2014).  We can do "anything" we have to do for our kids and our husbands and the rest of our family.  With your positive attitude you will be fine and you will be looking back at 30 years some day with your children having finished college, with sons and daughters-in-law and grandchildren and all the rest.  Always praying for "all" of you!

Hi, Kelly,

Great news that the scans are stable!  The chemo is doing its job, doctors are making the right decisions, and prayers are being answered!  Summer will come - eventually - and you will be able to enjoy it more fully.  Meanwhile, keep up the good work of tolerating the topotecan!

As always, you're in our hearts and prayers every day.

Love, Bob & Sharon

Hi Kelly,
Glad to hear that your scans looked good.  Praying for you as you start another round of chemo.  Also hoping that when you get a break from the chemo, we'll have warm weather that you can get out and enjoy.  A bit blustery today in Bemidji.  Know that we'll be thinking of you and praying for you this week.
