Saw your name pop up under Lori's and was wondering how you are feeling these days?  I was up in Amherst over the Memorial Day weekend visiting my sister and my brother.  Kevin flew in from Phoenix and wanted to go into Cleveland for the day.  Never did make it into the city.  Never made it off the patio. 
Hope all is going well.  Take care my friend.

Hi Annette

Thanks so much for asking about past 3 months I have been in the hospital twice. Once was a bad reaction to radiation and the other was a bad reaction to chemo. I have just not had any luck with the treatment lately. I only had 1 chemo treatment and my hair fell out.This is the 5th time I lost my hair, but this time it aggravates me because I cant continue the chemo. Also, my scalp is burning like crazy !!!! I have sores on my scalp...ouch !! I see the Onc on the 8th so I will see if she has any new ideas for treatment.

How are you doing these days ?? It seems like ages since I have seen you. How is Jordon and how are the  other girls ?? Please stay well my friend.

Love and Hugs

stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....

Hi Cath, great to hear from you. I wish it was with better news, chemo is just so unkind to your body. I am keeping you in my thoughts always. I have a whole new empathy for people being in the hospital, my heart goes out to you. Please make sure you find some time to enjoy the summer, we've got some gorgeous weather out now.

Love you dearly!

I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through.  Losing your hair 5 times?  OMG!  I will be hoping and praying that your doctor will find a treatment that works and doesn't cause any more problems.  This is just too much for one person to endure.  You are VERY strong and I admire that.  Please take care of yourself.
L & H,

Cathy it was great of you to let us know how you are doing. As Lori said, we all keep you in our thoughts. Wish we could all get together but it is out of the question for me to travel at all right now. I know it would not be easy for you, either. Not to mention the costs..... So we will just have to rely on our good memories of earlier meetings. I have the St Louis group picture here by my computer and look at it frequently. You are standing right next to me with a great big smile. I look like a sourpuss for some reason??? Take care and feel our love and prayers for you. MK
