good appointment

I went to see Dr. Rayson, the chemo doctor, yesterday and it went really well. The best news was the cancer hasn't shown up anywhere else in my body - big relief! He explained everything really well and I feel a lot better with the approach they are recommending. He was so positive and told me to forget everything I know with my Dad's experience and said that "I will write my own story and we are going to make it a great one". Love him!! I don't have the exact start dates for treatment, but it will be the week of the 23rd. I am going tomorrow to meet with the wig people then on to the hairdresser to have my hair cut short to help prepare myself for it to go. I'll be honest that I am feeling a bit low today which I know logically is crazy because the news was so good yesterday, but I think almost being able to count on just my fingers the number of days until treatment starts is freaking me out.


  1. I'll be thinking about you lots (even more than I have been!) this week Kathleen. You are a warrior woman and an inspiration to us all. Now go kick that damn cancer in the ass with those fantastic pointy boots you own.
    Always here if you need anything.

  2. Because, as Sarah W says, your "warrior strength" is a inspiraton to everyone, Kat!
    By the way....she does own fab boots and I have seen her put them into action but that is for another blog and another time and place.....:-)

  3. So glad to hear things are going well Kat. Thinking of you often and sending you positive thoughts.
