Hi Julie (and Alex)
I'm pleased that he's wanting to eat and maybe the next round won't be so bad.You're right. He has had enough and shouldn't have to deal with this but we are never sure of the hand that life deals us.
Both of you hang in there.

Yes, I am on facebook too.
It is a good feeling on here when we can vent our anger on Mr & Mrs Cancer.
I have just come home from my gyno oncologist appointment, he is very pleased and so am I. Next appointment to him will be this time next year, but radiation oncologist in July. It will be 3 years in July, and honestly apart from my knee problem and a few other little nigglies, I feel great. People remark on how healthy I look. Mind you, I didn't have chemo just radiation. This time next week I will be packing my bag for hospital as I have my knee replacement done on the Wednesday, but will go in on Tuesday.
Keep up the good vibes and encouragement everyone.
Hi there Im here!
Thanks for asking Julie! They found a brain! Which was a relief he he! Menieres Disease by the looks of it. You are in Dubbo! I stayed in Yass over the summer holidays! Whoo-hoo!
OH! and I am doing the Worlds Greatest Shave dedicated to you guys! 🙂 Yeah Im nuts - the Chemo (methotrexate) I had for a rare ectopic to save my life didnt affect my hair so what will go and do? lol
Its for a good cause 🙂 as one student said "Miss you will either look really interesting or really gay, but for a good cause 🙂 "
That's awesome. I'm not so brave.
We have a teacher at school who had very long hair and a ZZ Top beard to match who said that the hair would go if $3000 was raised. He then uppped the stakes to $5000 and he would lose the beard as well.
2 other year 12 boys joined him. For one it is an annual event - his only haircut of the year since he was 12!
we had a full school assembly at lunch for the great shave and everyone was scrounging for their loose change to see the beard and hair go. At the last minute the count reached $5000 which was an awesome amount to raise and Steve did the honours himself.
He kept the hair short but is systematically growing back the beard.
Take it easy you guys with the vertigo and Meniere's.
Yep we do all of that at school! The demand is that overwhelming that there wasnt any room for me he he 🙂 How brilliant is that - so many generous souls 🙂
So - I am doing one at home and I am dedicating it to you guys 🙂
It is a sensational feeling!! I did it in 2008!!! Organised an event down at the local tavern and it was so wonderful to find how many people, mostly strangers, came out to support me, either donating, colouring or shaving their own heads. I managed to raise $3400 as an individual plus another $200 through raffles etc. Makes you realise there are still so many good people around
Well done you are an awesome person for doing this. I wish you well in all you endeavor to achieve.
