Hope all is well with her also.
Marsha, I thought of you and Tommy as we drove through Mashpee yesterday, going home from Christmas with the inlaws. Hope Tommy is feeling better today.

Sorry, I've been out of town for christmas. I don't have any "releasable" info at the moment but possible something HUGE coming. Since I'm extremely young and otherwise very healthy for my type of cancer I'm an ideal candidate for tests, trials and experimental treatments. I see a Dr. at John's Hopkins on the 2nd. I can tell you more then when I see himand make a decision. Thank you for your continued prayers.

Shugardrawers,

I just read this post last night and was so deflated to hear your news. While my cancer is what they call the "good" kind, I am all to familiar with all the feelings that go along with recurrences, treatment, etc.

I'm glad to hear that something BIG is coming from Johns Hopkins.

You have such a great outlook and spirit that I *know* you are going to do a great job getting through this. Please just know that we are out here thinking about you more than you probably know.

Wow. This sounds really promising. Look forward to hearing all about it, and of course keeping you in my prayers.

Know that many hearts and prayers are with you as you fight this brave battle Shugar . Sadly both of my parents have had cancer and dear Dad lost his brave battle after a 15 yr fight, so sadly I know what is possibly lurking down the line for me. I only hope I am as strong and full of courage as you and others here seem to be. I had never heard primary peritoneal cancer until 10 yrs ago when my friend was diagnosed. I am so gald you are getting into JH where we have some of the best drs in the world and we pray with your youth, strength and courage the drs will be able to find a miracle cure! Please never give up your faith! ^i^

Godspeed and I sincerely admire all those fighting this cancer curse.

I just realized I hadn't come back to update. Some interesting and exciting things are coming down the pike. I met with a Dr. from Johns Hopkins who has developed a laser that will slice a human hair lenghtwise 100x! One of the biggest obstacles for those of us with primary peritoneal cancer (a form of ovarian cancer that adheres to the abdominal wall) is that it spreads outwards like a puddle rather than in clusters like grapes. Cancer like that is often inoperable because it can't be debulked, or cut away, easily. And frequently, as in my case, it covers major arteries. You just can't cut away a major artery like that. Anyway, this new laser brings the hope of being able to peel away tumors layer by layer that were thought to be hopeless. Like mine. Then, traditional or experimental chemotherapy treatments would be much more likely to work for me because there is less cancerous tissue in the body.

So, on the 15th, I am one of the lucky first patients (there have been about 50 before me) to have this surgery. It's minimally invasive, in/out same day and little pain (or so he says). Following that I may go into a medication trial. I haven't decided on that yet and they haven't formally accepted me anyway. So that's where we stand. Thanks to everyone for thinking of me. I'm tired but not quite ready to quit yet.
