Let's Dance

Dear friends,

I've got another post for you today, but of course I had to make a card to celebrate.  So, my Dr. said that he doesn't really know what is up with the elevated tumor markers and that we'll continue to monitor those as we go along.  He said it was his job to worry about things if they continued to increase, but for me not too.

The key component in all of this is the scan of course and Friday's scan is essentially the same as the one 4 weeks ago.  There is some slight growth in a lymph node in my stomach, but again, my Dr. said not to worry that it isn't a significant enough of a change to bother with.

So... that means July break from Chemo is still on.  I will have my chemo this Thursday and then continue to go in every week for blood work, but hey at this point, blood work is no biggy at all!  I'll take it and a bag chips!

To celebrate, I made this card.  Isn't she a cutey?  This is my first stamp set from My Cute Stamps and I got her over at i{heart}papers.  Kate has been a great supporter of mine since the diagnosis as a person and not only that, she has some great stampy stuff at her online store, plus a great sale going on right now too boot!

PS... I know I don't write down the products I use, but if you want to know anything, just shoot me an e-mail.

(Stamps: My Cute Stamps)

Until next time.
