Does anyone know if Eve is doing o'k?

I have left a private message in her box and she hasn't picked it up.
We have been corresponding since day 1 and it is not like
her to not pick up her mail

Hope she is just off somewhere enjoying life :D

Bump up here Joy.
Eve posted in late March into the POG topic as she was being POG tested and I asked her get back to us with any news.
Otherwise I have not heard from her.

Always sending Best wishes and POSI +++< Vibes !

I really miss "talking" to Eve. We have supported each other from the get-go!
I am considered Colonrectal cancer free, but unfortunately I have other "issues".
3 years out after completion of chemo for Colonrectal I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymph leukemia
and MDS (bone marrow failure) anemia caused by chemo?????
I also have chronic kidney disease caused by Chemo???

This is not to say that I am not enjoying life...I go to Florida for the winter each year
and try to just ignore all the medical problems. Reality bites at this time of year
because I am back in Canada and doing the rounds of Specialists at the cancer centre.

I am currently not being treated ....Chronic Lymph leukemia is not treated immediately
as there is no cure and the first approach is Watch and Wait (watch and worry). I will
eventually have to go through Chemo the trick is to find something that will not do
more damage than good.

Anyhoo I digress.....just wondering if anyone has heard from Eve. I am concerned
about her!!!

Hi Joy,
I am sorry that I did not responded to your e-mail as I have not been on the board lately. I am scheduled for surgery in the next few weeks and, frankly, I am scared. I will have an illiac node removed and it will be POG tested. The surgeon has given me some very good news; the surgery will take place with an intent of a cure, but the bad news is there are a few things that can go wrong and the surgery is 4 hours long. I am trying to calm myself down at this time, but I find it difficult.

( PS: I emailed our Onc to thank him and congratulate the team on the POG success
…. BUTT he would not spill the beans on which drugs he had used )

Cheers !
