May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
Thanks guys and gals. Or I guess that should be guy and gals, huh? No wonder you keep this site going, Teo! Most of the time you get to be the only guy surrounded by all these beautiful women!

As you can see, I am feeling pretty good today. Fell asleep at 7pm last night and woke up around 4am. And I'm still going. Every once in a while I start feeling tired and lay down but I haven't been able to actually go to sleep. I rest a bit and start feeling better so I get back up.

Yoko, if I can find a wig like that, I will try it on and have Billy take a picture to post on here just for you!
Good Morning! Doggy

Yesterday was the big CATScan report day! And we are almost there! It wasn't as clean as I believed it would be, but......

IT'S COMPLETELY CLEAR FROM THE CHEST UP! Brain, of course since the last one but they did check it again just in case. Lungs, Bronchial Tubes--NO CANCER!

The spot on my liver is smaller and they stopped the growth of the two spots on the bones. He added Zopeta to my day one chemo cocktail to help fight those two. It's especially for bones. I guess it is working, my bones are rather achy today.

The bronchitis is better. The cough still sounds horrible, but it is less frequent and not as intense. I hope I can get by this week without the codiene. Dr. Conkright and I were so excited over the report that we didn't really talk about anything else!

I wish you could have seen him. Because of so many offices being closed Monday for Martin Luther King Day, he didn't get the report until Tuesday. So he was reading it for the first time during our consultation. And I have never seen a doctor get so excited! He is a little shy and awkward and some of his patients don't quite know how to take him. I've never had a problem. I could always see how much he cared in his eyes. Sometimes I just wanted to reach out and tell him things were going to be okay. I have a sneaking suspicion that he may have gone into Oncology because someone he loved died of cancer. That would certainly explain the wounded look in his eyes. He keeps his face really calm, but his eyes still show it. Yesterday they were lit up like a Christmas tree!

He even came up front to talk to me twice more while I was waiting for them to set things up with the hospital. Not because there was anything medical he still needed to tell me but because he was so happy. I thought he was going to hug me, but he reached out and just very gently rubbed the side of my face and smiled.
Dear Susan. What wonderful news about your CATscan. You see you are on the way to recovery. You are very lucky to have such a kind and caring doctor. But then I think you are a special person and he is reacting to you. Keep doing everything you are told to do because it does look as if things are working.
Sending you even more healing love, Sue.

He is so tenderhearted it makes me ache for him. I was reading an article the other day that talked about how Oncologists have a really high depression and suicide rate. When I see how much he cares, that really worries me. Please, even when this is all over, keep him in your prayers. He truly is a wonderful doctor and more importantly, a wonderful caring man.
Nice, Yoko!

Thank you God and angels for surrounding dear Susan Losgann and all concerned with healthy loving compassionate energy, bright blazing healthy healing light. And so it is. Amen.

This new treatment is tearing my stomach up! I can't eat more than a few bites at a time and then I am lucky to keep them down. Mostly I am living on pasta. It seems to be the only thing so far that I have had much luck with. I suspect I have lost a few pounds this week. They aren't going to like that when I go in Tuesday. I just hope I am not dehydrated again.

Between the almost constant nausea, the bone aches, and this deep down exhaustion that comes with this one I am having more trouble keeping my spirits up. I have really good moments. All the symptoms disappear for a little while and I am on top of the world. But they don't last very long. And when it all comes back, I just feel like I want to curl up in a little ball and cry like a baby.

Coming on here helps so very much. Reading all the loving posts and knowing you all are praying for me eases the pain.

And yesterday I talked to my Aunt Mary and she is going to send us the money to set up the prepay account for Louis to be able to call again, so soon I will be able to talk to my son. I haven't heard his voice in months! Besides, it was just good to talk to her. I've always stolen a line from one of Robert Heinlein's books. She is just a whole lot of love with a little skin wrapped around it.

Shawna called this morning too. We are trying to plan the trip to New Mexico for the end of March. That is her Spring break and there is a good chance I will be finished with the chemo by then. Even if I'm not, I already know they will rearrange my schedule for the visit. They all feel that seeing my daughter and grandkids would do me a lot of good. Attitude is a big part of healing. It's wonderful to have a doctor that understands that.

Thank you again for being here for me through all of this. I wish there was some way to express how much it has meant to me, but I don't think there are enough words in the world. I can only hope you can hear my heart.
Dear Susan. I wish that we could be with you in person and hold your hand through all of this. But do know that through the power of this board you are not alone. We are holding your hand and going every step of the way with you especially when you are feeling miserable and down from this new treatment. Keep looking ahead to the future and the family you will be seeing and fun things you will be doing and knowing that at some point in time, this will all be behind you.
We do hear your heart.
Sending you healing love, Sue.

Thank you, Sue. I am feeling much better today. Billy went out this weekend and got me some beautiful, fesh ginger and lemon. We had ginger tea last night and my stomach immediately eased up. I really feel kind of silly. I'm the one who taught him how good ginger tea was for stomach problems! And I never thought of it! This stuff has my brain so addled I forget the simplest things. Thank Heaven's I have Billy to look after me!

I am very happy that you received my little book from Hawaii. Hopefully it will give you comfort and inspiration during your healing process.

I see you had some lovely prayes, and I do like the new haircolors Bounce

Continuing to pray for you.

Thank you all so very much. I know the love and prayer that has surrounded me through this have helped me tremendously, both in the healing of the cancer and in dealing with the side effects of the chemo.

Inda, the book has been a great comfort and I hope you had a wonderful visit to Hawaii. Skyblue from Chopra was there at the same time and she posted some incredible photographs on Chopra. They are under Everybody's Chat Room in Off Topic and worth going over there to look at. She has some professional quality shots in there. I believe she has discovered a new talent. She made me feel that I was there at the same time you all were.

The first half of this break from chemo actually turned out to be kind of rough. Apparently the protective effects of the steroids wore off before the side effects of the chemo. I was absolutely exhausted and nauseaous most of the time. Remind me of that if I get to complaining about the steroids again! The occasional case of the jitters they cause are much easier to deal with than the chemo side effects. But the last couple days I have felt much better so maybe I'll get to enjoy the last part of it. I still have nine more days left.

My daughter got us plane tickets to come out to Taos for a visit and they are going to schedule my chemo around it. We will be gone from March 24 to April 3. Ten days in heaven! And I WILL make it down to Stagecoach Hot Springs at least once, if I have to start early in the morning and hike down the gorge in stages!

Thank you everyone.

Thank you all so much for your prayers. This break hasn't been as easy as I expected it to be. I didn't realize how much the steroids help my body cope with the chemo. I've been really tired without them and my stomach has been so torn up I couldn't eat as much as I need to. But it finally seems to be easing up a bit so this last week may be better.
Dear Susan,

All bad things will pass.
2007 will bring a lot of good things to you and your loved ones, just have faith.

"It is all one, sickness and health.
A person's sickness is a gift from God.
The illness reminds you to give more time to God.
Trials are there to strengthen our faith.
Misfortunes are blessings from God."
(quote from Bapak, founder of Subud)

Continuing to send you healing energy and prayers.

Dear Susan,

You are quite amazing. Keep up the positive thought, and we will help you overcome the cancer. It is leaving your body. Soon it will be completely gone. You will regain your energy and you will no longer feel tired.

It is very good that your daughter sent you a ticket to go to Taos. This little trip will do you a lot of good.

Have a nice and peaceful weekend.
Maybe you can do some of your artwork again.

Love to you and Billy,
