Just wanted you all to know that I'm back from the hospital.  Chillaxin' as Justin says.  Not doing much.  Rad treatments start again on Monday to Wednesday (last three) and I'm hoping then I can relax a little bit until the CAT scan tells me if Harvey is gone or not.  I was supposed to have the last three treatments last week but a flood in the main area of the radiation/MRI area prevented that.  Soooooo, we are prolonging this torture for a few more days. 

I will write more when I know more.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Be well, Marilyne


  1. You are a amazing person Mar! Hang in there and keep your head up, Harvey will be beat and rue the day he ever thought about latching on to you! :)

  2. M: Hang in there---maybe the break for a few days due to the flood will help you get some strength back. I went to Robinson today as part of the budget tour and saw Don McCord. He was not aware of your situation but was glad to hear you were handling it well (at least until a few days ago) and remarked about what a fighter you are. Hope this weekend is good for you.

  3. Thanks Anne for your upbeat and uplifting comments. I hope Harvey is nothing but a pile of ash now. Be well, Marilyne

    Hi Fred - as always good to hear from you. I thought the McCords and Eyre's knew but now I'm not so sure if they were on the original list. It's okay they know. I sort of expected the bottom to fall out towards the end as everyone told me this is one of the most brutal cancer treatments out there but because things were going so well and smoothly I thought maybe I would be one of the lucky ones. Man plans, God Laughs. I'm home resting right now and gearing up for next week. I expect to be pretty sore and exhausted for at least a few weeks after that and then hopefully start to recover. They say the recovery time speeds up once radiation is over and there is no more chemo/etc. there, plus my bloodwork should start to rise and immunities build again. I always feel better when that happens. Right now I'm at the lowest point. Thanks for writing and giving me such uplifting words and encouragement. I truly appreciate it. Be well. Marilyne

  4. M Three more rads; I admire you so much. I don't think I could have handled what you have.Remember I was a blubbering idiot with no pain involved. Once you're recovering, I'd like to come for a visit. Low blood counts are bad, but soon you will be on the mend. Mike and Lisa are also praying for you. I do believe God is listening to you and everyone else. Isn't it wonderful to know that we're all fighting with you?
    May God Bless you this weekend and always.
    Love with Holy Spirit zaps at Harvey,

  5. Hello An - you weren't a blubbering idiot at all, you were going through a late stage cancer and we were all scared. You don't think I sit here and cry? Pain is relative. Sometimes emotional pain is worse than physical. Thank Mike and Lisa for their prayers as well. As soon as I feel like company (right now I just want to crawl in a hole and sleep most of the time - so tired - never been so tired in my life). But once I feel like I have some semblance of energy, I'd love to see you. I will keep you posted. I'm drinking Ensures now and then...remembered when you went to Target to buy some. They aren't half bad when they are cold! Love you, Mar
