Hello friends. I have my ct scan scheduled for August 26th with the review scheduled for 28th with Dr. Moriarty. When we know the results good, bad or ugly we shall share them with you all. I am hopeful but naturally very apprehensive, which of course does nothing, and produces nothing, but they are emotions I don't think any cancer patient escapes when it's "scan time." Some days I have myself convinced its back, and other days I say to myself there is no way it will ever come back, and so it goes. Please keep us in your prayers.
I am feeling much better physically and mentally. I am tired a lot, but I am also exercising a lot and attributing my fatigue to that at the moment. I really cannot complain. Things are going well.
I would also like to acknowledgthe passing of our friend Christine Niemi. Her blog link is on the sidebar of my blog "coloncancersucksass" which of course it does.
She passed away July 18th 2009. She was 32. She was the first "young" stage 4 cancer patient who I befriended when I was diagnosed, terrified, and frantic to find "someone like me," and of course she befriended me right back. She was a comforting friend to me but didn't mince words about how bad this cancer is or how bad it gets. I loved her honesty. She was an extremely strong woman. Going to graduate school throughout her treatment and lobbying congress about colon cancer prevention, and screening for those who were in need of it and uninsured. You can read about you tenacity, courage, and drive here http://fightcolorectalcancer.org/c3_news/2009/07/c3_advocate_christine_niemi_dies
Christine I will miss having you as a friend and someone who I looked up to. May you be resting peacefully in heaven suffering no longer. My condolences to her family and those grieving her loss.
Let keep praying for each other.
With much love,
