Dear KIOA Listeners,
I made it! Nearly six months of chemo treatments are OVER! And my third scan last week continued to show improvement in shrinking unwanted tumors. My doctor says its “amazing” to see such results. But along with the good I’ve had to deal with a lot of shortness of breath due to fluid around my lungs. It’s scary and pretty much limits your ability to do anything. So today doctors drained a lot of extra fluid from the right side of my lungs and in a few days will remove extra fluid from the left side. I’m not going to get graphic about the actual procedure. B.A.N.—Big Ass Needle!! All you need to know is when it’s over I immediately feel better. Once I get the other side done I might be ready for a walk to the corner!
So slowly, but surely I’m trying to get my energy back and that includes coming back to KIOA this Spring. I’m convinced all your acts of kindness, prayers & support have guided me this far and I’m forever grateful.
