Pfft! Who Need’s Farrah?

My mom had Farrah’s car in 1977. 302 V8 with four-speed…   Yeah!  I used to love burning rubber in that car.  It would chirp the tires just by punching the gas. :)

Mom was stylin’ man! How about that Big Hair? How about that outfit?

Go Mom!  You Rock!

Happy News

This month, one year ago, Bill got a CT scan which showed that his cancer had returned as metastasis to his liver. It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year already. Frankly, neither Bill or I were sure that he would be around for another year!!

Bill’s most recent CT scan shows that his liver lesions are continuing to shrink and there is no evidence of any new lesions. In addition, his tumor marks, which have been remaining steady, are starting to drop. This is VERY good news.

In addition, Bill’s pain has decreased, he is taking less pain mediction and he said yesterday that this week is the best that he has felt in more than a year….probably since before his initial surgery in March, 2008. Needless to say, we are both very pleased, as is Bill’s oncologist.

Our plan now is to continue with the chemotherapy which he is on now until it either stops working or there is no evidence of disease. Bill will continue to have CTscans every three months to monitor his progress.

We can’t thank you enough for all of the prayers, positive thoughts and good wishes which have been sent our way. I believe you all have helped to make this possible.
