Keep on smiling...

Wow it has been a while since I have updated.

Let's start with after my last treatment with Avastin we found another blood clot in my back to the hospital we went. They upped my lovenox medicines which jon gives me 2x a day. I did tell the Dr I had a benefit planned for me on Saturday and I couldn't stay. I was discharged on friday.

Saturday was the golf outing. I am so happy I was able to be there and be a part of the fun. I feel it was a huge success and have so many wonderful people to thank. It's amazing how am community comes together to show support.

I made it through that week and made it to Florida on tuesday. What a blast. It is great to see and spend time with family. The weather wasn't our friend until the end of the week. It rained mid afternoon but would get nice in the evenings.  We went out on the boat & went fishing one night.  I can't wait to go back!

Today I had a treatment for Avastin.  I had to get my blood work tears and didn't have to hold a hand...and the results showed my white blood counts are very low. So pretty much I an more susceptible to infections. I have to get an injection to help increase the white blood count.

The dr. Said next week's scan is important because the radiation should be out of my system and we will get a better look at the tumors. Fingers and toes cross it is still working!

I just want to thank you for your thoughts and prayers.  I know I say it every time but  on days when I don't feel like getting out of bed I can feel "team beth " cheering me on.
