sorry for the delay

I just got all my tests back and they tests came back that my chromosomes were normal witch rules out the desmoplastic tumor. So now were back to square one but on the good side right now I feel great and just had another ct scan and it came back that the tumors are still shrinking and I haven't done any chemo in two months. My eyebrows have grown back and I feel much better about myself, that was the only little thing that bugged me stupid huh. So our plan with kaiser is to maybe start 3 more rounds of the same chemo then we go to trials. My heart is at the lowest of normal strength wise, a normal heart is 50 to 75 percent mines 52 so were going to try and strengthen it up a little more but over all my quality of life is much better thanks to all my wonderful friends for being there for me. love you all sky.

well, I know it sucks to be back to square one with the not knowing what exactly it is, but that is great that the tumors are still shrinking! I am glad your eyebrows are growing back, I understand how that could bug you. I am just happy to hear that you are feeling good. Get your heart stronger and start that chemo. We love you. Can't wait to see you. Have a safe drive up. Miss you!

I feel so guilty for waxing the shit out of my eyebrows today ;-) LOL

Well, I just wanted to swing by and tell you that I was thinking about you and your family and hope you have a great Christmas. Isn't it amazing how humans thrive in the face of adversity? We stop and smell the roses only when our lives are forced to an abrupt halt. Otherwise we just run right by them.
But damn don't those roses smell great?
Enjoy every smell this Christmas. This is what being human is all about.
;-) Love ya Sky.

Shrinking is a wonderful word to hear. You've been through so much, it's understandable that your heart is a little weak. You've never left my prayer list. What a wonderful Christmas gift. They will get the answers. I pray your faith and strength continues to grow each day. Merry Christmas, Sky!
