Count it Down With Us!

Yesterday, Mom had a lovely visit with one of her cousins.  Sheila, Chris and Anu stopped by the house on their way to Sonoma.  How nice it is for her to have these visits from friends and family!

Monday, January 24th
Chris, Sheila, Mom and Anu

After today's treatments are completed ..... Mom will have only 9 remaining radiation fractions and 2 chemotherapy infusions!!!!  Radiation is expected to be completed on Monday, February 7th and chemo to be finished on Tuesday, February 8th.  We are all so proud of her.  She certainly is ONE TOUGH LADY.

This last phase will be the hardest - so they tell us.  All of your support and best wishes are very much appreciated.  The many visits, phone calls, cards, emails and blog posts have certainly aided in her perserverance.

Let's keep them coming as we all cheer her down the home stretch!!!

Thank you all so much,


  1. I guess now is a good time to remember:

    "We are never given more than we can handle"

    "This too, shall pass"


    "Love will see us through"

    Always in my heart,
    Mary Ellen

  2. Hi Grandma,
    WAY TO GO!! Single digits for everything already. Mom keeps bragging about how amazing you've been through all of this - no surprise to me but still inspiring. I know that your positive attitude is what's making it go as smoothly as possible.

    We're trying to plan our next trip to Napa...looking forward to seeing you.
