Just stuff

Hello all. I just wanted to let everyone know what's going on...which isn't too much but at the same time a lot. I've kind of been procrastinating in terms of updating the blog, I think because I am sick of talking about myself (ha ha).

The MRI went well last week. And following in the footsteps of my friend Adam, took home a copy of the films (on CD) to do my own armchair diagnosis. Things seemed unremarkable (for someone who has tumors in their liver) to me and Dr. Moriarty's assistant Kathy called me to let me know that Dr. M. was happy with the scans and the report and in fact things are even a bit smaller.

This wed. Dec. 10th I will have another colonoscopy performed by Dr. Lipsky and on Dec. 15th we have an appt. to meet with Dr. Chamberlain.
So though it doesn't seem like too much is happening it is exciting to see if their will be a continuous flow of cancer death and maybe even another shot at a liver resection in the future.

I am very interested in what Dr. Chamberlain has to say. I have zero expectations set however and I am taking things one day at a time. I have been feeling fine relatively speaking and I continue on Erbitux every two weeks. I know erbitux is an awesome drug but I have to admit I am very sick of the side effects, but its working.

I can't say enough thanks or ever appropriatley express my gratitude to every one who is praying for us and supporting us and loving us. I am always very humbled by all the prayers people are saying and the time they take out to show their support in their own ways. I really am so, so thankful and grateful. God has been very merciful to me and my family and I know it's because of everyone's prayers. God's light really does shine through us all in the everyday things we do for others. God created us to be good and beautiful in all kinds of ways and if I ever doubted that before I never will again.

I am praying for all of us everyday.
