Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I can't possibly keep up with who I've told and who I haven't. Hence the reason for this site. Last week, moving week of course, I got the news that my cancer has spread and the oral therapy was no longer working. 3 lymph nodes near my heart are the culprits. 1 of them is on the esophagus where it breaks off to each lung. Radiation is not an option. Given 4 options to move forward, after much contemplating, I have chosen to try a different chemo than the one I had before. I start on Friday, May 5th. Yes, I will lose my hair, AGAIN, but this roller coaster of the past 3 yrs has shown me that there are far worse things than losing one's hair. Here we go again.........stay tuned.
