Hello , I'm doing ok




I am not doing well, BUT I am not worse. Just no progress on the three original tumors. They are not going away. 6 weeks and another MRI.

In mid April I get my 6 month Pet/CT...a mile stone ..I was going every 3 months
for 3 years as I was stage 4 and had it in my body.. The chemo and radiation
took care of the body.. but chemo doesn't work on the brain. Radiation does.


I have skin issues.. colon issues.. no energy.. don't feel like eating. I sleep late in the day and then can't sleep at night.

I have head aches.. my body hurts and can't wait to get out for walks. Any time
it is decent I'm going to take a fresh air walk.. I can't go alone ...but I can go with
any one who will keep an eye on me.

Rich loves to walk too. so it works
I have not driven for a year. It's ok..but sometimes I'd love the freedom
I still rely on friends for rides...for fun .....and for doc appts.

I will go back to FB soon ..but I try to post on my blog if there is news.
Facebook always seems to have issues that I don't feel
comfortable .

It's sunny today and a decent temp

  2. Deena,
    I ask that The Great Physician will heal all those that have
    undergone surgery and radiation therapy and that the fire of God will destroy all the cancer cells and I ask the healing virtue of Our Lord God will flow through every vein, tissue, cell, ligament and that healing will manifest.

    Always thinking of you...
    Deanna

  3. Hi Deena I dropped in to see how you were doing. I sometimes search from within to find words that might make you feel better. But more than words I pray every day for you. I just know St. Peregrine is listening and with Gods help will make you feel better soon. Keep the faith. Keep those angel wings wrapped tightly around you. Paulette

  5. Hi Deena.
    I am so sorry that you are going through all of this. It is so hard to see our friends suffer through this disease but we pray and send good thoughts to you.
    Spring is just around the corner and hopefully it will bring with it some relief and to be able to get out for those walks and enjoy all the new life that Spring brings us with nature.

  6. Deena...I understand the mobility issue. I have no car and live so far away, I rarely get out of the house. When my hubby is home, he will take me places. I can still drive, I just never have a car!
    I hope you can get relief for some of the issues.
    Have a good week....

  50. hello sweet Deena. I am so glad things aren't worse, but pray that the tumors go away. Your body has been through hell and you need rest, so don't feel bad about sleeping late---I do it a lot these days, especially since the heart attack. I just get depressed because of my age and having one so early in life. It was a shocker to all of us, but life has changed me and now I look at the simple things in life and leave the big things to Al to worry about. I am trying hard to make my life stress free, as you should also be doing. Get Well soon my friend. Prayers are still being said for you and will continue until the tumors are just a memory for you. Love and hugs, Pat
