Happy May Day!

Scan results came in today and they were not what I had hoped for. The cancer has not spread to other areas of my body, but the lungs are continuing to worsen and the lymph nodes between my lungs are getting larger. One of the nodes appears to be more aggressive than the others. I'm not surprised by the results because it's been almost a month since I've had any kind of treatment. Once I return from San Francisco, we'll get something going...and I'll work on kicking this cancer's BUTT.

The whole family got together tonight and we went out for dinner to Jimmy's Pizza and Pasta (one of the family's favs). At dinner we celebrated Shannon getting a great new job then after dinner we celebrated our friend Ann returning home from Iraq. We all had a great time, but the evening got away with us and we didn't get home until midnight. Now it's 1:30 and I'm having trouble sleeping so I thought I'd get on line and share my thoughts with you.

Tomorrow (today actually) is Nick Whiton's funeral (celebration of life). I'm sure it will be a very emotional day but I'm looking forward to putting my arms around Larry and giving him a hug he won't forget. I'm still struggling with how unfair Nick's passing was. He was so young, with young children, loved by so many and had lots of unfinished business. Why don't we have a cure for this disease?

I'd better get to sleep. It's going to be a very long day tomorrow.

Dream Big,

Either way cancer is bad news BUT it's good to hear it isn't matastasising. So when can you get some new lungs?

It seem cancer has become a pandemic. I have been seeing more eyes open as CANCER has become a part of their lives also. We do need to find a cure!

Be safe and have FUN in Cali!
