     I decided it is time to start a journal here, a wonderful way to keep folks updated.  I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December 2008 and have been in and out of treatment since then. The last couple of years I had chemotherapy without a break.  Most of this time I have felt pretty good and been able to participate in a variety of activities.  My last chemo was February, 2017, and side effects had become severe enough that I had a few trips to the ER.  My body was finally telling me, "no more chemo".   

     I am grateful for the 8 1/2 years I have had, much longer than my original prognosis.    I have been able to play tennis, walk, make quilts, enjoy the company of friends and family.  But, after much thought and introspection, I have decided not to pursue further curative treatment--no extraordinary measures, no feeding tubes, no CPR. I have now added palliative care to my team and they are very helpful.  Thank you for all of your love and support.
