First step backwards

I went for chemo today and the Oncology Doctor would not let me have the treatment. This is the first time I have not been able to be treated. This is an emotional step backwards for me as I feel it is the first sign of my acceptance that I am not going as well as think. I now have to have another colonoscopy before they will allow me to have chemo again if they find no issues. If there is a problem it may mean surgery to remove the tumor. The complication is my liver is riddled with cancer and to stop chemo may mean growth of the cancer which I have worked so hard to bring under control.
I still have a positive frame of mind, but finding it hard to maintain. I will keep fighting on and realize it will only get harder from now on.

  3. Brilly,

    I had no idea what you have been going through and have just got myself up to speed. WOW! Although you have been through so much, your positive nature shines through the most. I have taken a lot from your blog and I am another one from around the country sending my support.

    All the Huddo's send their love. But most of all me. Michelle
