I know some are following our journey..

Let's see, the last round of chemo did not work.

We have been on a bit of a chemo holiday and will start another treatment the second week in December. I am leary of this one as it can cause extreme painful rashing, but he wants to try it and so we will. Tarceva and Gemzar is the protocol......not a lot out there for Pancreatic.

Anyway, we will be taking a trip to WDW to gather up some magic so that we can face the treatment when we get back..

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving... we are doing the best we can, one day at a time.

I hope that your trip gives you all the pixie dust you need to have a successful next round. You are both so brave. I don't always post, but I do make sure I read all of your updates. I am keeping you both in my prayers.

Dear Mackey Mouse,

Please keep the faith. I know that you must be going through a lot right now. I hope and pray that you all find some Magic to infuse your souls at Disney. It will be a well needed break for you both.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I hope that you had a good Thanksgiving holiday together.

Lisa

Marsha, you have my continued prayers & good wishes. I hope you guys are able to enjoy your trip. Along with everyone else, I'm praying for success with the chemo - I know how draining it can be on the both of you. We're following your updates & wish you every blessing.
