I wanted to take a moment and thank you all for everything you've written on this thread and shared in PM with me. You all are wonderful, loving and extremely kind people

Last weekend MH and I went to run errands and we stopped by the donation box...I was sitting in the car and MH walked out with his arms full of cards and say I was overwhelmed is an understatement.

There were cards from all over the world with messages of hope and love...thank you so, so much!!!

The Cancer Sucks candies...LOVE THEM!! They bags are up on our island in the kitchen and I dip into them on a daily basis Thank you!!

The coloring book to keep my mind occupied during chemo is wonderful...thank you!!!

All the pennies my cards...unbelievable that you even remembered!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

My AK47 This Shit shirt is awesome!! I'm wearing it to my next chemo appointment...I'll take a picture and post it in here All my nurses know that's my Battle Cry and they say it as I walk down the hall each week!!

This past Wednesday was my 'progress' exam with my oncologist. Between the radiation and chemo the "the tumors are significantly smaller" and "we're making great progress"

I swear, it was the best thing we've heard since we got the news on April 1st. The cancer is responding to my chemo and radiation...praise God!!

I'm down to 2 chemo's left and 4 weeks of radiation to get through, then they'll wait 1 month and I'll do a CAT and PET scan to see where everything is...fingers crossed that I beat it. But if not...we're prepared to tackle it head on again if need be.

My entire pelvic area is fire engine red and extremely sore to the touch due to all the radiation treatments...but I don't care, we are pushing through this no matter what!!!

Thank you again...each one of you have made a huge difference in our lives. MH is just as grateful to you all as I am

My tolerance for stupid shit is getting less and less.

That is amazing news. I didn't realize you'd get a progress report so soon into the treatment. So glad they did though, as now you know that what you are doing IS WORKING!!!!! Such wonderful news. Congratulations, to both of you.

You are both still in my prayers. So glad to hear the positive update. Sending you both lots of love.

No one changes unless they want to. Not if you beg them. Not if you shame them. Not if you use reason, emotion, or tough love. There is only one thing that makes someone change: their own realization that they need to.

Thanks so much for the update! You two have been in my daily prayers. And I know God will forgive me for a few Fuck Cancer endings on those prayers.

I think of you often, just kind of pop in my head...I send you love and imagine myself as carrying you for that moment.

This is a fabulous update. Way to go!

Talk to your radiologist, but I found making a strong infusion of green tea, letting it cool to room temperature and using it as a compress to be very soothing.

DS, you are forever in my heart. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spirit with me. I will always try to live by the example you have set. I love you and miss you every day and am sorry you had to go so soon, it just doesn't seem fair.
