My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about our loved one.

My Story is the introduction to our CaringBridge site.

Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.

As you know, this January I was diagnosed with bone cancer. Since there was no defined primary cancer. the chemo treatments have been extensive. I always new that I had a lot of friends. Howver, the cards and phone calls have been tremendous. So much so, that during the treatmants, which have really knocked me down, I have not been able to respond to all of you.We just discovered this service and thought it would be a great way to keep you all informed.

To date, I have had one complete round of chemo and am in the middle of a second round. I have also had ten sessions of radiation in an attempt to reduce the pain in my leg.I have also been hospitalized once.

Well today is a chemo day. Two more to go.Then some scans to determine what we will do next.

I will keep you updated

Well so much for chemo day. My blood counts were all way low and I had a transfusion to help inrcrease my platelet count. We are trying to schedule an appionment to see where we go from here.
