Hi, it’s Cheri…
Hello it’s me. (- Todd Rundgren) Thank you for all of your well wishes, things are going great. By now you have probably heard that the BIG C has graced my doorstep. Stop that now, it’s ok. I have great doctors and this will not be taking me down so don’t let it bring you down either. (- Neil Young)
So here’s the nuts and bolts. Awhile back I started having trouble first with swallowing my supplements, then food and well now, I really can’t swallow much at all. Why you ask? Esophageal Cancer. A mass is sitting in my throat and has only left a passage about the size of a straw. Not to worry, ice cream is still going down just fine!
So getting back to the peanut butter and jelly of things, I am two weeks into treatment and so far, so good. For as long as I am able I will keep you posted here as to how my journey is going. Check in anytime, get an update, leave a note. I am so fortunate to have great care and great friends rallying around me. You got to have friends. ( -Bette Midler) The time will come soon when I may need more help from all of you, so save the date! xox, Cheri
