My next step will be a meeting with my oncologist to determine which systemic chemo we'll try next. That will happen on Dec 12. I
In the meantime, I plan to have a wonderful Thanksgiving and then fly to Las Vegas for a few fun days including taking a hot air balloon ride.

Have a great Thanksgiving, Michelle! And a (profitable) trip to Vegas. too. Enjoy yourself before you start on that nasty ol' chemo...although if it does it's job, I guess its worth the miseries. Chin up, lady! You are an inspiration to all of us.
(((HUGS))) to you! So glad to hear that you are feeling strong and looking forward to your trip and turkey day.
Can't wait to hear about the hot air balloon ride! That is on my "bucket list". My mom took a ride one year during the hot air balloon festival in Arizona a few years back. She described it as "magical".
I am so glad to hear you are feeling better. I bet you are glad that your brain radiation is done. I love your attitude about your hair. Have a blessed Thanksgiving and enjoy your mini vacation including your hot air balloon ride. Talk to you soon, continued prayers are sent your way, Deb.
I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength. Come follow my life's journey at: www.mybearyspecial.blogspot.com
