Hello to all my friends,
Well the 2nd round of cocktails are done and I am happy to report that this time was much easier, mainly fatigue but nothing I couldn't handle. I have one more round the 28th then surgery to remove my stomach in February. Ok so that is freaking me out a little I am doing all I can to get my body ready, physically, mentally, and spiritually so that my healing process will be easier. I just want everyone to know that I am doing well the doctors are very pleased with my progress, they actually thought by this point I would need a feeding tube, but I fooled them all and I am actually gaining weight!!! So I have this break now to enjoy Christmas with my family, so for now the words, Cancer, surgery, and chemotherapy are banned in my house. I just want to enjoy this next week and only have some fun!!! Have a wonderful day my friends and thank you again for all your support. B)

Diagnosed with Lymphoma March 2010. After surgery doctors said "Oops!"
Diagnosed with Celiac Disease April 2010. After endoscopy doc said "Aren't you glad?"
DD #1 ('99) tested negative on bloodwork but positive on 2 genetic markers. Went gluten free in July 2010 and has been symptom-free ever since!
DD #2 ('98) tested negative and has no symptoms. Didn't fork out money for genetic testing. Will watch and test regularly.
Husband tested positive in July 2010 and has refused to go gluten free. Uh huh, that's gonna bite him in the a** one day! (Pun intended!)

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season. Rest up, recharge and bask in the love of your family. You're one courageous chick, and don't you forget it! ;) Defying the doctors has made me feel pretty good---you should too!
You're a warrior princess!
