“Slight progression”

Progress usually implies good things. But cancer has a way of tossing all aspects of life on its head. My latest scan showed 2 areas of millimeter growth. The rest of my “spots” were stable. I sort of had a feeling about this. Like I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been off my game. I haven’t been as great with diet, I’ve discontinued some herbs and supplements, and adjusting to Medication dose-adjustments and various other life changes…. but even if I was on my game, progression is always a possibility. And that really sucks. This lack of control is sickening and terrifying. I’m trying to keep calm and keep my head above water, and that is one hell of a challenge. I met with the NP on Thursday and she did not seem worried. We are continuing on the same treatment (ibrance and letrozole). Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers, I am so grateful for all of your support.

  1. Two things…This is not your fault. Lack of dietary discipline or any other aspect of being proactive regarding health, is not your ‘doing’. Number 2: Keep up the good fight. Your articulate blog and interactions with sick and healthy people gives strength to all…Amy, you hold a more meaningful existence than most of us. Two steps forward, one step back…


  2. You are always thinking, always listening, always questioning, always willing to try new things and let go of what hasn’t served you. What that looks like from day to day, week to week, month to month, year to year changes. When life throws you curve ball after curve ball, you are ready to step up to the plate again and again. You are all in this game with your eyes wide open. And that’s beautiful. This disease sucks. You do not. Hugs!


  3. Hey Amy, you’re in my thoughts and prayers, absolutely. I know this isn’t the best of results, but certainly not the worst either. It must be difficult to process but what Nancy and Patricia say is so true, don’t ever beat yourself up because you have this damn disease. Stay calm, stay strong. Love and best wishes from Kerry, cheering you on from the other side of the pondx
