First Week of Chemo

Wednesday, December 17, 2014      3 comments

I have been very neglectful of this blog lately. Partly it's because I have had so much to do, what with Christmas, and partly it's because Danny's chemo hasn't gone smoothly at all, to put it very mildly. I will try to consolidate a whole lot... Read more


Monday, December 01, 2014      4 comments

After an enjoyable, if brief, visit with our friends in New Jersey last Monday, Henry, Danny, and I drove to my mother's house on Tuesday morning. It was very good to see her again, even though she had aged in the two years since I had last see... Read more

Update from DC and parts beyond :-)

Monday, November 24, 2014      4 comments

I just realized I am a bit behind in updating. After the last blog, I did speak to Dr. Whiteway, who confirmed that our DC/PA trip was a go. I am so relieved and happy and grateful to God and to all who have prayed for us and for Danny. B... Read more


Thursday, November 20, 2014      4 comments

After a day of absolutely crushing scanxiety (cancer parent word), stomach in knots, crying at the least provocation, etc., I was soooooooooooooo relieved to hear (preliminary read by Danny's dad) that his MRI looks stable after the surgery. Th... Read more

Treatment plan

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      3 comments

Again I am having a hard time making myself post updates. I am not sure why. Perhaps it is that it seems worse to write stuff down. In any event, I am forcing myself, and maybe it will be therapeutic. Sunday Danny and I headed to Houston... Read more

Update on Danny and me

Thursday, November 13, 2014      5 comments

I am really having to fight myself to post updates about Danny anymore. I am just so sad and discouraged that I don't feel like writing anything. Not that there is a lot of new bad news, but any is too hard for me. Let's see...the Novarti... Read more

Tumor subtype results

Sunday, November 09, 2014      5 comments

After what certainly seemed like an interminable wait, I got Danny's subtype result. Dr. Whiteway called me Friday afternoon. There are four different subtypes: WNT (no idea what this stands for, but we all want WNT, since the survival rate i... Read more

Quick Danny Update

Friday, October 31, 2014      5 comments

Danny came home from the hospital last night. He was pretty weak and tired, and I think, in retrospect, it would have been better if he had stayed one more night. However, he is doing OK. Henry and I took him to the clinic today, since they h... Read more

Danny Update

Wednesday, October 29, 2014      3 comments

Danny had surgery on Monday to remove the tumor that was on his right olfactory bulb. The surgery went well from the surgeon's point of view, although Danny wouldn't agree. He has pretty much been miserable (his word) ever since he woke up f... Read more

Moi and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Thursday, October 23, 2014      6 comments

I am sorry it has taken me so long to update about Danny and his MRI results. One can probably tell from the blog title that the news is not good. I have been shocked, stunned, overwhelmed, any other synonym for 'aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!' and I haven... Read more

MRI Revisited

Friday, October 17, 2014      6 comments

I could say about MRIs the same thing that was once said about green eggs and ham: I do not like them, Sam-I-Am! Neither does Danny. He had a regular, routine MRI Tuesday the 14th. He is generally a very cooperative kid when it comes to ... Read more

Friday's Fun Run

About my speed right now (pun intended)... Read more

That Terrible Tuesday

Monday, September 29, 2014      4 comments

A month ago I had posted a status about three terrible days in one week - Mon., Tues., and Wed., the 18th, 19th, and 20th, to be exact. And the following Sunday I posted a blog/rant about how stressful and difficult that Monday was. I ha... Read more

Yesterday's Birthday...or should I say Friday's Fifty-something?

Saturday, September 27, 2014      3 comments

A year ago I was sad on my birthday because my older kids didn't do anything special for me - in fact, I didn't think they had even remembered. They did eventually both call, and I felt much better. This year I didn't even get a chance for a p... Read more

Childhood Cancer

Thursday, September 11, 2014      3 comments

I want to get a few blog posts that have been simmering in the back of my mind actually written and posted before I get to some about summer activities with lots of pics, and then maybe do some blogging about exercise and improving my life. Or ... Read more
