I know it has been a while since my last update. I've finished with my third dose, which was a bit more of a rough ride, but to be expected. Yesterday, was my last does of the big four (so kindly called the Red Death), and now I navigate the next couple of weeks to heal before I begin the next regime of Chemotherapy. The wonderful news is that I am responding so well, that my tumor cannot even be felt physically and through ultrasound has shrunk to less than a cm. Maybe even more so now, as it has been a couple of weeks since that ultrasound. The news is so promising that the doctors believe they can reduce my next regime in half, 6 weeks instead of 12. So many blessings that the issues I have had have been tolerable. I won't kid you, I do have very bad days, but I stay in faith that I am being healed. I am blessed through the support of many friends and family who have encouraged me with love and prayers. I am grateful. Here is the last pic of me receiving my last of the big four chemos. And yes, I've got a lot to smile about.
In the meantime, I'm keeping myself busy from the couch with drawing and writing a little here and there. I'm compiling my thoughts on the journey, and have received much encouragement to create a book for others. We shall have to see. Below are a few more statuary drawings and one drawing of a beautiful Ziegfeld Folly girl. Again, these are for keeping myself from getting rusty and I don't own the images that were referenced, although I do believe the Ziegfeld girl is in public domain.
