Return To Chemo

I'm starting back on my Chemo treatments today. It's been about 2 months almost since my last chemo. Between the 2 hospitilizations in august and the infected portacatheter, my shrinky-juice regiment fell by the wayside.

In one way, I'm glad to get back on chemo so I can continue killing my tumors. part of me is scared that the hiatus caused some cancer to return or grow. Nothing I can do about it, sadly, but get back in the game.

It's been nice not having mouth sores or finger and heel fissures. It's also nice not having to deal with the poo-pouch anymore. The reconnection is not as bad as I feared. Not great, but not as bad.

Have a great week my praying warriors. Please know I continue to cherish the support and strength I get from all your prayers and good wishes



  1. Peggy-It was great to see you at church! You look TERRIFIC!! Our prayers continue to do battle with yours! We especially pray that this round of chemo will be gentler on your body while doing its job. Once again-thank you with all our hearts for your continued inspiration.
    Love Pam and Tay

  2. Fight on my friend!



  3. Peggy, glad you are able to move forward! Glad to hear that reconnection was a little better than you expected. As Willie Nelson puts it "you are always on my mind!!" (does that bring back memories of Tower Hall soph year???!!!) Praying for you and sending lots of cyber hugs.... Kirsten

  4. All the best to you with your battle ... I know the fear of the growth of the tumors after a small break. Hopefully the chemo will knock it back in shape.

  5. Peggy,
    You are an amazing woman and an unbelievable inspiration! I admire your candor, attitude, humor and faith. You remain in our family prayers.
    You Go Girl!!
    God Bless,
    PS Which photo did you choose? For the record, Warren and I loved them all - expressions were priceless. Your beauty shines through in each one; our favorite was probably the last one.

  6. Peggy,

    Thank you for sharing your very personal journey. It has allowed us to stay up to date with your progress without bothering your family with phone calls. Our prayers are with you!

    I think "red head" would be a good.
