Long Time - No Write - My apologies!!

We are so happy to be done with the chemotherapy phase of my treatment.  I finished on Thursday, April 11th.  I want to thank all the wonderful doctors and nurses who took such great care of me!  For the most part, I sailed through with little affects on me.  I just got back from St. Joseph Hospital where  met with my new Radiation Oncologist, Dr. James Jacobs.  I was thrilled with him and feel I am in good hands for this next stage.  He spent 2 hours with me in a consultation.

I will have a CAT scan this Friday where they will map out the exact details of the radiation treatments.   Then I start daily radiation for 3 weeks on May 6th (my birthday).  I will be completely recovered and ready to greet my new grandson in June. What a thrill for both Rudy and me!  Life really is GOOD!!!

Thanks to all of you for all your support and love.  I surely do feel the positive thoughts and prayers!!
