I haven't posted about my battle with cancer in a while, so I thought that I'd update you guys a little.
A little before Christmas, I had a little scare. Due to my ulcers, I had lost too much blood and feinted, injuring my head in the process and a couple other minor things. Fortunately enough we got that under control, and my cancer has taken a turn for the better.
In the beginning, I was given 2 initial options. Start with chemo, or go straight to the surgery at a attempt to remove the mass in my stomach. We chose the chemo.
After a little while of doing so, the doctors became concerned, but wanted so desperately not to deliver bad news to me that they bounced me around from specialist to specialist. Finally, I heard what I needed to. My health had starting deteriorating and they knew it wasn't working. I was almost forced to go through with a surgery that I wasn't nessecarily strong enough to endure. My parents and I decided on 2 more treatments before the surgery.
A few weeks later, I'm potentially cancer free and in remission.
My pigs have helped me so much through this, and so have all of you. I just want to say thanks, and let everyone know that it's getting better and that I am going to be okay. :)

Thanks, and my wishes are with you.
I lost a friend in February to it and only being 15 quite frankly I know how that feels.

Totally. Your mom hasn't directly affected me but tell her I said thank you because those nurses do a lot.

Yay, happy news! Those piggies sure did help you. Or maybe it was our hippie powers. lol Either way, I'm glad you're feeling better.

Yay great news! Being a parent it's so hard hearing our younger generation going through such horrible things at such a young age but I'm so glad you are getting positive news finally! Extra wheeks of joy from my piggies to yours for taking such good care of you.

Keep us updated :)

Thanks so much guys, and they definitely stepped up. They were on their best behavior and I swear the day that I came home from my first treatment all three of my girls started giving kisses, for the first time since I've had them..

My well wishes and prayers are being sent from here. My Mother has breast cancer that has spread to her spine. She had Spinal surgery in October, and is on an "anti hormone" treatment to shrink the cancer. She has also recently completed her radiation treatments. We go back at the end of month for more scans and see how she is doing. This stuff is really scary! Again Well wishes and prayers for you!
