Awww Ads, it is a shame you cant do any of that anymore, but like you say, it is not good for you to do it in your situation

How is your daughter going?

She went to see her oncologist this past week. The tumor has gone down more and the swelling of her brain has finally subsided completely. Her last chemo will be in October. If there is any of the tumor left they will go in and remove it. But they have high hopes that the tumor will be gone by then. This is the best news I have had for a year.

Ads, I really am ever so happy for you

That really is fabulous news, it sounds like it is certainly going and hopefully it will all be gone by the time she has her last chemo session...great news!

Thank you. It looks like all those angels have been really watching over her. I am so grateful to everyone here in DC. I don't know how I would have handled all of this without a place like DC to come to. It has been a lifeline for me. It is a place I can come to so that I don't think of her plight for 24 hours.

Thank you everyone. When my SIL told me, I started to shake and cry. It has been a long haul. We are almost at the end of the road.

The power of prayer! So happy to hear that Addie! I'll tell Harriet and Myrtle in the morning. They've been asking how your daughter was doing. Really--they talk to me.
