This has been a good year overall and the chemo break has been good for her. She feels look and looks good and her hair has grown in very nice - again!
We aren't sure what the next round of chemo will bring - her counts have been good and Dr. Porubcin is very happy with her health right now.
I asked mom what she wanted to do next year for the BIG 80 and she just let out a sigh and said that all she is thankful for is each and every day... because she did not expect to make it this far. It has been 8 years since her diagnosis of Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer in March of 2009, and she has been thankful for all of those days and is looking forward to more!
