Surgery on the Horizon

I really can’t believe that it is almost August.  I don’t know about you but I feel like this summer is flying by way too fast.  I just realized the kids go back to school in one month, Frazierstock is in about three weeks, next week will mark Round 12 and it appears the last […]

Round 11 and More

I feel like there is so much to talk about that I really don’t know where to start. Pet/CT Scan I guess I will start with the results of the Pet/CT.  Dr. Woliver sent me the following email after reviewing the results: “Bottom line, it looks great.  They aren’t seeing anything clearly in the liver […]

Pay It Forward

You may have heard but my Chemo Cheerleaders came up with the most wonderful theme ever. Pay it Forward.  I arrived at chemo and was given a bag with three bags inside filled with random stuff like toothpaste, tissue, granola bars and more.  At first I didn’t quite get what it was for but then […]

Round 9

May 30th marked Round 9!  I really can’t believe I have already gone through 9 rounds.  They are so much easier now that I am no longer getting the nasty drug.  I confirmed with Dr. Woliver that we would continue to stay off of it unless my numbers began to rise and so far that […]

A Little Help From Friends Old and New

It’s interesting when your life gets turned upside down and you become the person people need or want to help especially when you are used to being the person helping others.  At first it was such a weird place to be in.  There are so many emotions that go with allowing others to help you […]

Community Support

We are truly blessed to live in such an amazing community and to have so much support from friends near and far, old and new, as we travel on this crazy cancer journey. Prior to being diagnosed I never really understood how many people are impacted by cancer not only the people dealing with the […]


Many people ask me how I can keep so positive as I move through this crazy journey called cancer.  To tell you the truth I don’t really know what it is that keeps me so positive but I think it has a lot to do with how grateful I am for everyday of my life. […]

Round 7 – Exceeding all Expectations

Yesterday was Round 7 of Chemo.  Anda picked me up and we headed first to my appointment with the Amanda Sweet, Physician’s Asst and Dr. Wolliver.  Amanda said your CT results are really good, your labs are really good and then Dr. Wolliver walked in and said immediately “you are exceeding all of my expectations!” […]

CT Results are In!

So I’m not cancer free but I sure am making positive progress.  Dr. Wolliver sent me the conclusions of the CT exam with the subject line Great News.  I was elated that we were receiving another round of positive progress. The conclusions are as follows: 1. Significant improvement in size of multiple presumed hepatic metastases, with […]

CT Yesterday – The Wait Begins

Yesterday afternoon I had a CT.   I was called in and turns out it was the same tech that was there for my first CT on November 9th when this whole journey began.  She said you remember where the dressing room is right?  I replied, not really I was in a bit of a […]
