there have been no postings, there's not been much to say.
the tiredness has gone away, the sick of her stomach has gone away.
(her hair is even growing back... it's not bristly anymore, it's getting soft!)
but, keep sending those good, happy thoughts jackie's way!

yesterday was the second treatment with the alimta.
still pretty quick, once they got it started.
today jackie is very tired, and a bit sick of her stomach.
(old 1st grade sick excuse reference)
dr. chua said that it was a good sign that she had been coughing less after the first batch.
(jackie was coughing less, not dr. chua)
also, she said that jackie's lung sounds are good, with good breath on both sides.
we'll take that as good news.
probably have a couple of down days, lots of rest and not much excitement.
we'll keep you all posted.

this past weekend, a few of the ladies from one of jackie's email groups stopped by from KY, IN, and OH.
above are Roberta, Pattie, Becky, (jackie), Suzanne, & Carol.
they all went out to lunch, then came back to form a conga line in the living room!
(da da da da da, DA)
Katie, Jackie's sister from Buffalo is in town, she is going with Jackie tomorrow for the second chemo treatment of the new drugs.
speaking of which...
don't forget your S.E.E. for tomorrow, Wednesday, 10/13.
it's a much shorter infusion time, but don't let that stop you from chanting all day long!
(or, if you're feeling in a lionel richie mood, you can chant it All Night Long)

yesterday was the 'Hike for Hospice' in blue ash.
lots of ebels out doing the walk in honor of the great people at Hospice.
the picture to the right shows the team.
jackie made the walk with the help of:
dale, jim reid, johnny (pushers)
tony (wheelchair lender)
it was a very brisk, sunny day.
I'm sure Dottie was looking down, thanking the hospice people as well.
we had our usual post-hike stop at skyline!
not a bad way to spend a saturday morning!
other than that, the Status is Quo.
or is the Quo Vadis?
(points for explaining that one!)

we're sorry there hasn't been anything on the blog for a while.
since the last infusion, the new chemo drug, there really hasn't been too much to pass along.
jackie's reaction to the single drug, vs. the cocktail was less severe.
and now that she is no longer on the clinical protocol, there are no blood tests and visits between the chemo sessions.
the next chemo session is on the 13th of october.
we will post for sure the day before, and shortly after with any news.
but for now, there is nothing really to report.
we'll try and make sure we do an update at least every sunday going forward, or any time there is news to pass along.
thanks to everyone who is following us with the fight.
(especially for all the S.E.E. thoughts/chants/prayers along the way)
don't forget the "Shine a light on lung cancer vigil", 7pm november 4th, at the blue ash town square.
we'll post more details as the date gets closer!
