Positive Energy update

A big thank you to everyone who participated, sent spiritual support, or even gifts to Cathy and me. We received positive news once again. The MRI showed no significant growth in my new tumor, and the original tumor is also stable. Needless to say we are expremely happy, and ready to attack the tumor with another chemotherapy agent. I will begin this new agent, called Vepesid or VP16 this week. The course of treatment calls for three weeks on and three weeks off in addition to the other two agents I receive now. I have been feeling extremely good! Enough, to enjoy a very relaxing trip to New Smyrna Beach. It was incredibly beautiful and relaxing. This next treatment might even include a course of radiation. The important thing is I feel so blessed to had made it to this point in the treatment. So thanks again to all of you, and especially Cathy and Donna who spearheaded the day of prayer and positive energy.
I love you all,
Ellen

It is wonderful to share your good news. I sent the positive thoughts but I had to do a couple of"die you little bastards die" chants too.
