I'm so sorry to hear that your peri-met treatments are no longer working. I was hopeful that all your trips to Lyon for treatment would be worth the effort. And it was so disappointing that your difficult cytoreductive surgery / HIPEC procedure did not completely wipe out the peri-mets.
I hope that you are able to have some time now to enjoy whatever time you have left. If you are able to continue to travel now and over the summer, maybe you could plan a trip over to the Alps or somewhere else peaceful, just to get away from the bad weather and chaos there in the Île-de-France and enjoy some quiet serenity.
Whenever I now see a reference in the news to the Gare de Lyon or the A6 motorway, I will think of you and wonder how you are doing. In the past couple of months I noticed that you had been logging in here every other day or so but never posting any messages until finally you started this current thread. It must have been very difficult and heart-wrenching for you to finally decide to post that message.
I'll be thinking of you over the summer and beyond, and will say a prayer for safe journeys wherever you decide to go next.
Take care, and God bless you.
Dear Green Tea,
I'm very moved by the fact that you remember my "journey" in such details. Yes, it is tragic that all the effort, money and time my husband and I invested in my peritoneal treatments didn't pay off the way we expected... Cancer is a cruel foe, always three steps ahead of us...
I spent last week in Corsica and it was beautiful. Coming back home was very difficult though...
If my body cooperates, we'd like to go to Provence for a week ot so... Fingers crossed.
Thank you for your heartfelt words, they mean so much to me.
