    Celebration: Hi All, just wanted to share some good news! My ct scan from June 20th came back stable, showing no changes from previous scan! Also the 20th just happened to be my 15th Wedding Anniversary and our second granddaughter was born at 1 p.m. that day. She was three days early. What an amazing addition to our family and blessings abound! I hope you're all enjoying your summer and remember keep your head held high and keep fighting!!

    Hi Everyone, it's been quite a long time since I've posted anything. Well my computer was hacked and it took almost 3 weeks to get everything working again. I was very frustrated, but hey it was nothing compared to what we deal with on a daily basis. I had a great time on my vacation with my hubby the end of April. We are preparing to head to Branson, Mo next weekend for my sister's wedding and then in August to Wisconsin for a family reunion on my husband's side of the family. My oncologist has been very understanding and I have been able to take some chemo breaks so that I feel as well as possible. I will have another ct scan mid June. I will have to leave Branson early to return for chemo, but hey at least I will get to enjoy 4 days with the siblings. I was considering radiation to my lungs to remove two of the larger nodules but decided the side effects were a bit too scary. I may reconsider it down the road. For now I hope the chemo continues to keep things under control. We had really bad storms rip through our area on Friday night. We lost several big trees and had a ton of limbs down but are truly blessed it wasn't worse. A tornado touched down about 5 miles from our home! It was very scary! God continues to bless us every day. I hope all of you enjoy the summer and have more good days than bad. Blessings!

      Hi NanaL! :) Great to hear you and your hubby had a good time on vacation. Sound like you'll be doing some traveling in the coming months. You are busy living which is wonderful! Yes please lets keep praying that the chemo keeps doing its job. So sorry to hear about all the storms and stuff in your area. It is quite scary to have to deal with that. A tornado touched down 5 miles away?! omgoodness....I really hope everyone is ok. Take care of yourself. Sending tons of hugs your way.

    Hi my WhatNext family, I just wanted to share a few things with all of you. First of all I had my scans on Tuesday and saw the Dr on Wed. Good News! All is stable and there have been no changes or growth! I am on a one month chemo break and my husband and I leave next week for vacation! I'm really looking forward to getting away and relaxing and enjoying the scenery on our road trip. Also seeing family we haven't seen for over a year will be great! Blessings to all!

    Hang in there Willbill. I know exactly how you feel. I also have metastatic nodules in both lungs which is rectal mucinous adenocarcinoma. It was worse hearing the news 2nd time around, just like you stated. I was so angry when they told me I would have to go thru a lung wedge resection and biopsy. I have been doing maintenance chemo since Jan. 2012. Feel free to vent, ask questions or just share info with us. Blessings!!

      Thanks. Blessings to you also. I am in the hospital now. Had my ileostomy reversed and next week I will meet the thoracic surgeon. So, did you have your lung surgery and then start doing maintenance chemo? And I am interested to know how often you have chemo (and what kind) and how your PET scans have looked. Sorry about all the questions. I am trying to learn as much as I can.

      Willbill, I hope your recovery from ileostomy goes well. I had lung surgery, biopsy's confirmed malignancy and then had another port put in. I then started chemo once every two weeks. I did 8 treatments with ironetican, avastin, leucovoran and 5FU. In May of 2012 they took away the Ironetican. My ct scans have been holding stable with very minimal growth. I get rescanned on April 15th. I had chemo last week, but am now on a 1 month break as my hubby and I are going on vacation for 12 days at the end of the month and I want to feel as good as possible. I'll start back up on May 8th. Best Wishes and let us know how you're doing.

    Kalya, ask lots of questions concerning your surgery. Take a friend of family member with you to be another set of ears. Let them ask questions. I know this is all very scary but once you get some answers and know what you're dealing with it will get easier. I am sending prayers your way and please keep us posted.
