I don't have much energy for a full post, BUT

I found out Monday that my tumor has shrunk from 7c to 3.4c. It's halfway gone and I haven't even begun radiation yet! Also, no metastasis so far.

I wish this meant that my treatment will end sooner, but alas, that's not what the oncology gods have in store for me.

Recovery after the vincristine/adri weeks is always hell. My feet have started to hurt due to nerve damage. Luckily they have given me an extra week due to Thanksgiving, so maybe I'll get a little relief...

oh wow! that's some GREAT news! i'm so happy to hear that it's shrunk...
that's right bitch! we told you you'd be sorry for bothering a good soul like Kaylin.

as for the sore feet... it's probably quite different, but my bunion is now causing a bunionette...at least i assume. my feet hurt everyday and i can't wear any of my cute shoes. it's horrid. :l i can feel you on that one.

anyway, my brain is not working well right now. just got home from work. i need sleep. i love you. i have yet to find those butterflies and fairies but as soon as i do they'll be flying over to you in an envelope.

YAY! very very good news, and exciting, too. Has my letter reached you?
Are they still planning on doing the radiation also?
Sending love vibes now :)

Sending love and hugs....
