PRAYERS & PIXIE DUST ARE BEING SENT
YOU,RE ALL IN OUR THOUGHTS
We saw the oncologist last Thursday. We were given some mixed news we think it is so confusing listening to all the physicians and what they interpret. The oncologist told us that my wife needs 4 more cycles of chemotherapy and 16 weeks of radiation after that. He also increased the time that she needs to do maintanence on Herceptin; to 2 years from 1 year before surgery. He also said that there were 9 involved lymphnodes of the 17 removed. this is more than 4 which is considered a good outcome. SO you see in 1 breath they say things are good then this so we still are in need of many prayers. So till This Thursday when we get more chemo and see the radiologist.
Be well all.....

It has been a while since I have had the time to do an update on things here because life is always busy when School begins. We had a little scare about 3 weeks ago when we went for chemo. My wife had a sensitivity reaction to one of the 3 parts of her chemo treatment. She now is sensitive to Carbo-platinin but the Doctor says that it is ok because she has had enough sucessful treatments and had 2 more to go at that time. Now, she has 1 more to go on November the second. Then it is off to more MRI's and CT scans. after that it is off to Radiation for 16 weeks I think because we still need to visit the Radiologist again in 2 weeks after our last Chemo treatment.
We were to go to Disney this year but that has been put on hold till sometime next year we think. Still everything is up in the air. We just live till the next treatment or MD visit. Like always we like hearing the good news like the fact that her incision from surgery is healing fine; where it had opened up a few weeks ago.
Right now my family's million dreams all include my wife; thier mother's recovery and long life after all this is over and done with.
Like alway be well all.

just read your story, it so brave of you to share your ups and downs with us, sending you plenty of pixie dust today and every day,
I know it has been a while but with the Holidays and other things well it has been quite busy here My Wife finished her Chemotherapy in mid November. Then she was to have go straight to radiation but there was a slight glitch in situation her surgical incision did not heal properly. So she needed to go for a second procedure that delayed this but she did start her maintenance therapy with Herceptin. She does this every 3 weeks at the same place that she did her chemo.
Now, she is going to start her radiation today 1/8/07. She has had her tattoo process done last week so we are ready for 6 weeks of radiation.
So things are getting better here. Thanks for all of your continued prayers, thoughts and well wishes.
Be well all.....

Wishes can come true, if you believe in them with all your heart.And the best part is, you'll never run out of wishes.They're shining deep down inside of you.'Cause that my friends is where the magic lives
Right now I was just sitting here crying over events that have happened over the past few days.
I was always told that telling people about sadness helps so here goes.
On Tuesday night I was driving home from a typical day at work and well as always I call home to say good night to my kids and talk to my wife. well this time I could not get in touch on my cell tried numerous times where I got no answer. So I tried to call my wifes cell and still no answer. I continued to call until I got an answer. My wife answered and she was distraught she was crying uncontrollably. I asked her what had happened. She tells me that my 13 year old son had called the police on her. I was floored and totally shocked with what had happened. I told her to call one of our neighbors because with her being under treatment she should have some one there with her. She said no so I stayed on the phone with her as long as I could. I am like 30 minutes or so away from home so I was on for a while, thank god for cell phones. I was about 5-10 min from home when an officer got on the phone and talked to me. He as quite concerned about what had allegedly happened in the house that night and stories that my son had told them. So we decided that both my Son and Daughter would stay at their moms home that night. the next I remember on Tuesday night was seeing my 2 beautiful children being escorted out of my family's home by 3 police officers. My other Daughter was devastated she wants to know why her brother and sister were gone. So my wife who has gone thru a ton this year with the cancer and I talked and cried most of the night and most of Wed. We both decided that our children who we love so dearly and want only the best for would be better off at their Mother's house. since with her condition she could not deal with this type of situation happening when ever my wife tries to discipline the kids. She does not want every time that my Son or daughter does not do what they are expected or get a bad grade that we have the police called.
So we decided to contact a Lawyer on Thursday am. We told him of our decision and wanted to go forward from this with my children living at their mom's house. So we left and later on that day we went home and cried some more. and just sat there wondering why. and my wife went to have coffee with one of our neighbors. I was walking the dogs and then it happened. I got served with some court papers that well made me cry more. we now are just trying to survive and make our Daughter feel loved and know that it is all going to be alright.
So till next time I need to just let go and talk I will have to say good bye for now and may all be well....
thanks for all you your prayers and pixie dust now and in the future.....
I'm so sorry to hear about your wife and children. May god be with you in these diffcult times and know that everything will work out for the best. So keep yor chin up and you'll be in my prayers!!
Just a fas not on things here My wife's Radiation treatments are progressing and she is feeling quite tired from them.
We are all quite upset with the other situation that is going on here but like always we are persevering in cleaning up the rooms and packing up my son and daughters belonging's for pick up when my ex wants to pick them up. It is hard to explain the emotions that both my wife and I are feeling right now. Yet is it quite easy to explain our Daughters feelings. She is very upset and is wondering why this happened and if she is loved. We continue to tell her every day that she is loved by BOTH Mommy and Daddy and that her Sister and brother still Love her and it will be a while before they can talk to her and see her but that they still love her also.
Till next time Be well all.....
Hello All We have some Great News. I got my daughter back on Friday Morning . My ex decided to allow her to be happy and move back home. Boy has she grown.
