The Journey Continues …

I’ve just completed day 30 of my return to good health which means only three more radiation sessions left. The last one will be on Monday the 21st. The effects of the radiation will continue for as long as 2 weeks. I was told today that the sessions were the most intensive they give. I can believe it.

After that comes the waiting game. The effects of the radiation will continue for as long as 2 weeks. It will be up to 12 weeks before a CATSCAN will determine what the outcome is. It’s going to be a long wait. In the meantime I have to try and make up for the weight I have lost which will be a major challenge.

Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, messages of love and support. That and the incredible dedication of Laurent during all of this have kept me going. It has been as much a struggle for him as for me.

The word for November 16th is:
Hope hōp: [1. noun 2. verb]
1.1 The feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.
1.2 A particular instance of this feeling.
2.1 To look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence.
2.2 To believe, desire, or trust.
Middle English hopen, from Old English hopian.

  1. We are rooting for you. Hopefully the feeding tube will be removed soon and you can go back to normal foods. This year you will be allowed more holiday calories without feeling guilty or dreading the scale for the first time in your life. Hugs to you and Laurent.

  2. Thinking of you and Laurent in this final leg. Hope is the next step after making a request whatever it is. I liked 2.2 To believe, desire or trust. As it says in the Bible knock and the door will be open and ask and you shall receive. The first step is making the request. The second is the hardest – believing with no negative thoughts. The third is giving thanks when the request is fulfilled. There is nothing wrong with asking for something for ourselves.

  3. Here’s wishing you, and Laurent, times ahead full of happiness as you make your way to a bright and tranquil future. May the well wishes and heartfelt thoughts help this phase of your treatment pass quickly.

  4. JP and I are so sorry to learn that you are fighting this terrible disease my dear friend. Wishing you a full recovery, that every day you get steadier, stronger and better. Sending you and Laurent our prayers and lot’s of love. XOXO Monique

  5. 12 weeks to get a cat scan? Holy cow. I hope you have booked yourself some dancing boys to distract you during the wait.

  6. Although I don’t post often, I think of you both often. I understand the journey.
    By the way I made your almond and olive cake recipe. It was utterly delicious.

      1. I am. I keep going. And so do you guys! Love to both x
