I was diagnosed with gastric cancer in May. Updates to my story will be posted here.

Treatment #5

So good news! Treatment #5 is underway. My liver enzymes were still high this week but lower than last week so we were able to proceed. Feeling pretty good so far - keeping my meds, water, and food intake in check!

Due to the delays, my MD Anderson surgery date has been re-penciled in for 11/2. As long as the rest of my treatments stay on track I should be able to hold to this date. And while on the subject of MD Anderson, I can't say enough great things about my experience with them. My nurse is incredibly positive, reassuring, and so very patient with all of my thousands of questions. She has indicated that is not concerned about the delay of surgery/HIPEC treatment since I seem to be doing so well with my activity level, eating, and overall outlook. 

I'm taking this one-treatment/day at a time and am learning to be more flexible and go with the flow of all this. Some days are better than others, but I am so thankful for all of my friends and family for all of the positive energy and support. It's been keeping me going on the not-so-great days.

Love to you all,


P.S. Apologies to my friends and family who i've posted pics of here with out permission. I love you guys!!
