Hickory Dickory Dock...

Hickory Dickory Dock... the mouse ran up the clock.

I know... so much time has passed,  & I am long overdue for a post. Not that i haven't been thinking of you though.

But... as we predicted, my life this past year has been overrun by exhaustion, dirty diapers, bottle feedings, nursery rhymes, and so much joy!!! Owen is growing and learning so much.

As for me, I've been back to work since last May, and i have routine scans every 3 months. Once I asked my doctor when we could transition the scans to every 4-6 months, and he said, "We don't."  I guess due to the usual aggressiveness of this type of cancer. So... every 3 months come around... and i hold my breath... Sometimes you feel like a ticking time bomb. Hickory Dickory Dock.  Unsure of if or when it will go off. Unfortunately, my timer has just gone off :o(

That's the bad news... i have a recurrence of the cancer.
But I'm so fortunate because it could be much worse.
The good news... it is isolated to the liver, & we have a plan.
The best news... Owen is awesome!

Having him does make it scarier though. I can't bear the thought of not being with him or of him not knowing/ remembering me. I know... i'm being a little dramatic. I'm no where near that point, but you know how the mind tends to wander. And also that it's a recurrence too makes it scarier. I've had different types of cancer before but never the same one twice. Guess I'll cross that off my to do list :o).

So I'm just waiting on the clock now... won't have my chemo embolization until early May. Wish that darn mouse could run faster and speed up time. Please keep me in your prayers.

Best & lots of love...
