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 too...it takes a community, and you have all given us that.
With love and gratitude,

Things have settled down a bit since my last post. The whole brain radiation worked, and things there look good. The new drug combo of Letrozole and Afinitor are keeping things stable in my bones and most of my liver. However, there are 3 tumours that seem to have developed a resistance to treatment, and have grown. So I just finished high dose radiation to one, and am waiting to do radio frequency ablation(RFA) to the other two. I'm feeling ok, other that tired. I'm very thin too, and don't have the energy to do much, so I have to pace my day. The kids got home this week from 3.5 weeks of camp. We had a great visitors day last weekend and loved seeing Camp White Pine for the first time. I'm so happy to have them home though. I hated them being gone, and found the house way too quiet. But they had a great time, and I know it's such a fabulous experience for them. Zach's favorite thing at camp was sailing. So Mark pulled out his laser today, and they're heading down to Scarborough Bluffs this afternoon to try it out. Zoe is just happy to be back with her American Girl dolls, although she told me today that she wants to stay for the whole summer next year...I don't think I could bear it!!! We're hoping to get away in August if we can. A cottage visit, maybe North Carolina to see Wendy, Phil and the kids. But I can't say for sure until I know what's happening with my next liver treatment. Wishing you all a great summer. XOX
