It Was Good News Day - well for me anyway


I had my scheduled CT scan last Thursday and got the results today. I'm doing great! The tumors are still stable, no significant change since my last scan. Thank you God! And my bloodwork is still great. I really can't tell you how significant this is. Today marked my 19th treatment in a row since last September with only the brief break I had in February. This is unbelievable. I am tolerating the treatments so much better than anyone would ever have thought.

I am so grateful for the continued prayers of you all. Don't think for a moment that I do not feel them on a daily basis. Please do continue to pray that I can eat fairly normally to maintain my strength and good numbers.

The news today was not as good today for a chemo buddy of mine and I ask that you pray for Karen as she has finally after 6 years run out of options. An email buddy of mine who was diagnosed around the same time I was, has passed away from his colon cancer. Please pray for Jim's family. And please keep my special friend Cathie in your prayers as well. She has done so much to support me and my efforts to be healthy. Although in the grandest scheme, not the worst that can happen, she lost her hair today and that is really hard. Please pray for her as well.

Thank you dear friends and family. Your prayers, letters, cards, calls, visits, and emails mean the world to me.

Cindy,

Thank you for your updates, I am always praying for you and today's post is truly a good news day for all of us!

PS: I'd adopt a child in a heartbeat if it was in my husband's heart, too. Prayers!!

You are in my prayers! Your family, also.

I would love to adopt a child, if my husband would agree. God is still working on his heart.

Cindy,
Hello. Just found your blog today. Just wanted to say that I am praying for you and that my mother-in-law just finished her 4th chemo treatment for colon cancer. It was diagnosed during a routine colonoscopy and she had surgery to remove it a week later. It was removed successfull and her PET showed nothing but she is going through the chemo treatments to make sure it won't come back. Again, I am praying for you!
Blessings,
-Nicole
