It doesn't matter how old they are, they are still our babies aren't they.
You have my prayers.

You guys are the greatest.... I appreciate all of the prayers and positive thoughts headed up for Karen.... We are taking one day at a time - - and the road might be a bumpy one, but it is going to be easier because the load is spread out and is being carried by so many good friends...

Thank you all so much....

Just checking to see how your daughter is Mamaduck. I hope things are looking brighter for her and that she is doing much better! I'm still sending those positive vibes!

Karen started the radiation treatments on Tuesday - - this was a partial week due to the Holidays - - thank goodness.... Her first treatment knocked her for a loop - - - since she is getting a huge area treated, I guess her side effects are even stronger than expected.... Her overwhelming nausea as soon as they started on the main tumor location was instantaneous and awful... They put her on stronger meds, and that helped yesterday, but it seems that the treatment is working - - she has been sick off and on all day today with no treatment at all....

We are going to defeat this thing..... Keep the prayers coming - - they are really appreciated....

UPDATE:
We aren't sure just what is happening, but Karen has had three treatments this week (she is off today) and is doing surprisingly well... An underlying uneasy feeling in her tummy - - but not enough to really cause problems.... They started a course of steroids to combat the brain swelling that has been causing headaches, and that is the only change, but we are wondering if that is what is making a difference...

She has had a little problem with 'plumbing' control, but that is one of the things that she has been warned about, and she has now taken to setting her alarm to remind her to visit the loo... That seems to be working too....

I think it might have something to do with her sister, Linda's, scheduled visit this week from Green Bay.... They are both really excited about it.... I don't blame them - - I am, too....

I know that this is probably too good to be true and it most likely won't last, but we will take and enjoy the good days while we can....

Keep 'em coming..... And thanks for the prayers that have been doing a good job so far.... Love you guys and gals....

Thanks for the updates, hon. It sounds like Karen is one tough cookie and is keeping up the good fight! You are a wonderful Mom and I know your strength and positive attitude is helping her to deal with everything!

Hope you enjoy the time with both daughters and please continue to keep us updated. The prayers will keep on coming!
