Started the year cancer free. I just "knew" 2010 would be a great year.
E turned 2 and started potty training!
Returned to Houston for scans and discovered that the melanoma had returned to a small spot in my left hip. Cried the whole way home...
Cruise to the Bahamas with my husband, bestie and her husband. During cruise discovered a mass in my left lymph node. Found out during cruise that I was accepted into the trial at Vanderbilt, pending the other tests.
E completed potty training!
Began trial at Vanderbilt. Within 2 days of beginning the meds the tumor in groin had shrank to half the size!
Returned to Vanderbilt, with the kids for second part of the trial. Began developing some nasty side effects from chemo. Nashville FLOODED and we lost EVERYTHING, except our car (thank goodness!) Was taken off the chemo for a couple of weeks to get my body back to "normal."
Restarted the chemo.
Celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary.
Friends held benefit for me and my family. Discovered the masses forming under my skin and started freaking out. Found out the masses were NOT cancer. Stopped freaking out.
