Good News!

I had some good news today. The Palliative nurse came (Palliative care is one step before you are put on Hospice). When she started coming, she came once a week. I was doing pretty well, so she started coming every two weeks. After I stopped the chemo pills and just went to the hospital every three weeks for IV chemo, she thought I only needed her to come every three weeks. When she came today, she said that I am doing so well now, that she will come once a month and possibly, in January they will release me from the Palliative program! My CT scan showed all the cancer is staying the same and not getting bigger, which is really good because this was a very aggresive, fast growing cancer.  So, tonight I started my Christmas cards, and it is hard to stamp or to use punches in the bed because I can't get leverage, so.....hubby stamped for me, and used a decorative blade trimmer (don't tell him I told you LOL). When he takes me to Michaels or Joanns, he now knows the names of the supplies, and as soon as he sais it, he sais......Oh no, I can't beleive I know this stuff. It cracks me up. He saw some distressed paper and said ......this looks like Tim Holtz.......then his eyes got wide and he realized what he just said....I just laugh.
