We live on a lovely home where the backyard is all day lilies of every conceivable color. It’s so amazing that you can’t believe it unless you see it. This is one of the things in my life that gives me courage to continue to fight my disease. We also have a horse foal who I adore which keeps me outside more than usual.
I am presently on my pill Xeloda cycle and I must say that this is one of the “miracle” drugs on the market today. You take it by mouth. Unfortunately there’s no free lunch so its side effects are red and burning hands and feet. But, according to my last PET scan the drug is keeping my cancer at bay and that’s all that’s important to me.
Side-Out was invited by the White House to supply Volleyball nets for their annual Congressional picnic. It was quite exciting for our people that attended. The Volleyball net proved to be most successful with little kids but it was the center of attention because the kids were using beach balls which were given to them by the White House and the Volleyballs were being used to play Soccer. Not exactly what we expected. Sadly I wasn’t there – much too hot for me. I’m sure there will be pictures posted on our blog soon.
So, thank goodness, I’m feeling well and am able to enjoy my life, each minute is prescious. We are always eager to have people read our blog and respond to it. I’ve been battling Cancer for 12 years and like to keep up with the science of the disease. Hopefully, in the near future they will find more kind drugs like Xeloda, instead of the heavy duty chemo drugs.
ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF YOUR LIFE!
