Thank you for visiting my blog. I wanted to create it so that all the people close to me can check in to see what happening in my treatment, and how I'm doing. This doesn't mean that I don't want to hear from you. Please feel free to call, email, text any time. But I apologize if I don't always get back to you. This new cancer journey of mine is a full time job, and I'm doing the best that I can. Please know that your thoughts and prayers mean so much to me...keep them coming! Thank you for all your help and support takes a community, and you have all given us that.
With love and gratitude,

We spent another day at the hospital yesterday. We learned that the cancer is in my spine and ribs; I have arthritis in my hips; and I've had bone density loss. I'm officially an old lady now!
This is upsetting news, however not surprising given that it's also in my liver. Fortunately, my lungs and brain are clear.
I begin chemo tomorrow afternoon...I'm anxious to get things started. I'm also glad that they were able to time my treatments so that we can go to Jessie's Bat-Mitzvah in Boston. It's just after my second treatment. I wonder if my hair will be gone by then? It's crazy, but I'm more upset about losing my hair this time. It looks really good these days!!
Thank you to everyone that has called. I'm sorry if I don't get back to you. I'm finding these last few weeks exhausing. Please feel free to try me again another's not that I don't want to talk.
I also want to thank everyone for their incredible offers of help...I will take you up on it sometime I'm sure...and for the food that has been delivered so far. That alone is a huge help, and I appreciate it so much. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
