« Thanksgiving Means "Knight's" Day | Main | Would I Do For Her What She Has Done For Me? »

November 22, 2007


I for one are so glad you posted yesterday! Even though I had a full day with family, your daily blog is like a life line to me!
Thanks so much for sharing your daily life with us.......some days you hit it on the nail.
My kidney cancer was found Jan 2004, since [then] it's been back two more times. Funny first time was told had 99% odds would never return. I've decided they truly don't know and should be honest........oh well another matter entirely. I had my last surgery in Oct. and still recouping. At this point I'm not on any of the meds you are using. They just don't know if they will prevent the rcc or just doing the scans every 3 months.
I am curious how did you know it was in your brain? You don't have to tell me but always a concern in back of my mind....will it be there next??
You & Sherry seem like friends, even though our only connection is this blog, it's wonderful!
You both are in my prayers!!

(I fell down in the bathroom last summer and cut my head pretty badly. Went to the hospital for stitches and Dr. Shlaer said he wanted to do an MRI just to be sure nothing was going up there. They found three small mets, since gamma-knifed. The fall, however, had nothing to do with it. I just fell. Since then they have found two more.)--DCF
