Sandi's Fight Continues - from Sonya

Yesterday Sandi got her first IV Avastin infusion and last night she took her first dose ( triple strength) of the chemo drug Temodor.  She will have this high dose of Chemo for the next 5 days straight.  She has a new nightly routine......anti Nausea meds, an hour later a sleeping pill, then the 3 chemo pills.  Last night she was up sick from 2:00 am until 4:00 am.  She decided that tonight she will have no food after 5:00 to see if that helps.

Please continue to keep Sandi in your thoughts and prayers.

There are currently a few giveaways to benefit Sandi and her fight for life.  Please visit my blog and see if there are any you would like to enter. 

Bridget from Guide to Smart Shopping is an angel.  She is hosting a giveaway for a Live, Laugh, Love Bracelet and she is personally purchasing this bracelet to give it away.  Thanks to all of you for your continued support and comments to Sandi.

Good news

We got good news today at the doctor's office. The tumor is stable and not growing, not shrinking but my oncologist thinks some of the mass around it is most likely dead tissue. I'll be on treatment for the next year, which is standard treatment for brain tumors. I'll be on Chemo and also I've got to go into the office to get an Avastin infusion every now and then. My drs are very optimistic about my prognosis :-)
