Just a note to say hi myself!   Thank you . Sweet Angela, for keeping folks up to date :-)  I've done 3 weeks of whole head radiation and the doc says 3 more shouldn't hurt and could help, so I'll go through Wed.
After that they have mentioned "depo/Ara-C" chemo every other week.  Anyone ever heard of this? Done this?  Haven't talked to the MD about it specifically, just wondered if there was any first hand info out there.  Rad. has not been bad, just tiring and it HAS improved my speech (left side of mouth does not work right) and I think my vision has improved a bit.  Folks say my balance is better, but I know I still wobble like a weeble!
Thanks so much for ongoing cards and thoughts and prayers.   Many of you know how much they mean.  Special hugs to Shelley and hoping you are soon doing better.
Hugs,
MightyBeck

Hi there! What a sight for sore eyes! I am glad to hear you are doing pretty well, especially with the rads. You are quite the trooper!

My PC crashed back in December and i cannot find my directory. I may have an old one, but not sure where it is...so I have been unable to send a card. (Can anyone send me the latest address list?)

You keep hangin' in there, OK? We miss you around here and I hope you keep doing well...

Love ya,
Lori

Wow, Wonderful to see you post. I know Angela has done a wonderful job, but I am sure she feels like I do, when I see Shelley posting. Its a beautiful sight. It brings a special smile when we see old friends posting for themselves again. Hugs and love, Joyce

Becky, great to hear from you in person. Whole head rads do not sound like fun, but if they help, go for it. You know what they say about Weebles. They wobble, but they don't fall down. Hang in there, sweetie. We are pulling for you. Hugs and love, Lauri

Oh Becky,
 
How wonderful to see you post.  Glad the rads haven't been too bad.  They do make one tired though, don't they?  I've never heard of the chemo you mentioned, but like someone else said, they are always coming up with something new - hey if it works, we will accept it.
 
Hang in there, get your rest, but keep in touch when you feel up to it.  I'm jumping for joy to know you are doing better.
 
Love, Kitty

Hugs,

Candy

Just wanted to bump this up...this is the last post that I can find that was started by Becky.

I hope she is at peace now.

Whoa, it took me by surprise. I thought maybe her husband had posted a few words or Angela under her name. Until I noticed the date, I didn't realize it was six weeks old. Becky was a very special lady. I will never forget her. Hugs MK
