The inevitable

The doctor decided to start the new chemo regimen today. It's called: Alimta, and it's a newer drug mainly for lung cancer. They got the results back from my CT scan and blood work, and the news wasn't too good. There are new cancers in my back in the lymphnodes, and the ones in my abdomen have multiplied. The CA 125 shot way up to 7,000 (normal range is between 1-35). The chemo wiped me out and I am now resting. I will try and drive to Malibu on June 13 with Kathy Roberts and visit for about 5 days; probably stay at Charlou's house. Will keep in touch!

A Day Out in Monterey

A Wonderful Day Out
Went to Monterey and met Vicki at an ACQUA show (water-conservation). She's a big wig with the company so she treated me to a special luncheon, then we just hung out in her room at the Pacific Hotel (my friend Sally, was there too). We had the fire-place going and just lay around all afternoon watching old Ray Charles shows....Here's what I have to say to cancer: "Hit the Road, Jack!"

Here's the latest:
Wound-vac came out today. I am mobile, can drive again, party-party!! Can't stop me now!
Now, the next step is facing chemo again, which I'm not totally ready to do, but when is a human
every ready to face putting poisons into their system?
