The Coming Week

As those of you who read the old blog know, my entries were made on Monday and Thursday, and I intend to keep that schedule, but I'm getting used to the way entries are made on this new site and I can't yet figure out how to post an entry and publish it later. Technology and I are not good friends!

Since I'm going out of town early tomorrow morning, I'm writing now in case I can't make an entry on Monday. I may have figured out how to email an entry but in case you don't hear from me on Wednesday or Thursday, it's because I'm just too technically challenged to post an entry - not because I've forgotten about you! So don't give up - if I don't write during the week, for sure I'll be back with you next Sunday.

So where am I going? To Florida to keep my grandkids for a week! I can hardly wait! And I can't help but think back to this time five years ago when I was relapsing during treatment for the second time and wondering if I would see them start kindgarten. I've done a lot more than that! The older one is headed into 3rd grade and the younger one will start 1st. My week will be filled with swimming and games and laughter and love. And I am enormously thankful to be here to experience every minute of it. It is doubtful I would be stepping on a plane in the morning had my doctor not recommended RIT, and just think what I'd be missing! Boy, am I grateful!!!!

Every single patient deserves the same chance I had - and I will continue to spread that message as far and wide as I possibly can.

So to each of you, I hope you will have a good week. I thank those of you who have followed me to the new site and welcome others. And rest assured that no matter where I go or what I'm doing, I take each and every one of you along in my heart.

Bexxar and Zevalin are at risk and this could have world wide implications for patients that need the technology for life. This problem is being compounded by the USA insurance companies yet the need to have these drugs is not a USA necessity alone. I hope those who can will fight the fight for this within the USA and beyond. Joan Gray
