My Tumors LOVE Gemzar !!

Yes, it is true, today I received the most fantastic news - my tumors are shrinking!!!! They have shrunk 30% from their original size! So for now, my treatment plan remains unchanged. I will continue with weekly infusions plus the Xeloda, and in another 6-9 weeks I'll have another PT scan to again evaluate how my tumors are responding.  
God is so good.

Please don't forget that I am participating in Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's event, PurpleStride Portland 2010.  The fundraising walk is November 7, 2010.  I invite you to join me on the walk or make a donation on my website @  PurpleStride Portland 2010.

Lavender Pillow by Adrian

My daughter, Teri, has many wonderful employees who care about her and me too! One of them, Adrian, who is also a herbalist (as well as a landscaper, a loving father and devoted husband..) made me this wonderful aromatic lavender pillow.  Last month Adrian had made Teri a lavender pillow for her birthday and I loved it so much that he thought it appropriate to make me my own!!  God bless him.  I just love it!

Just Another HARD Day At Work!!! ??
