    Sorry that I didn't respond quicker. I had a death in the family. It took me a long time to be able to eat meat. It was like my throat closed up. I went for about 2-3 weeks on a liquid diet. I kept on drinking shakes. I maintained my weight throughout all my treatments with in 5 pounds. All I can say to help is believe in God & put your faith in him. God will see you through. Lot of Love JennyG

      I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My son and I had 2 friend to die in a week period. I just finished up my 5 weeks of radiation today. I am so glad for that to be over, maybe my throat will get better now. I also have maintained my weight, within 5 lbs, but it seems that I have less of an appitite now than before. I am having some difficultly with conspitation now where it wasn't a problem before, having to take stool softeners. I tottally agree about putting my faith in God I wouldn't have done as good as I have without him. A peace has come over me since I have been told I have cancer. I don't worry about not surviring. I am not afarid of dieing. I wil not be recieving any Chemo this week my blood count is too low. When I do start back I will be doing 3 days of chemo and 1 day for my boaster shot. I go next Monday for blood work., Hope it is still going up. The blood clot I had a couple weeks ago really set me back., but all in all my doctors are really happy about how my treatments are going even with some setbacks. Here is hoping you and your family are well and my prayers are with you. Please keep the prayers going because we are nothing with out him.

      love and Happiness to you and family

    All of my hair is gone again. My family says that it doesn't bother them, but it does me. I don't recognize me when I look in the mirror. I feel tired all the time. I try to get a routine going, but get so tired, I have to rest. I am up to an hour doing housework or on the farm.
