Latest update on our dear friend Karen
Our dear friend Karen has started treatment, and I know some of you may be wondering how it is going for her. With her permission, I am sharing Karen’s latest email update.
I Made It!!!! Had a mild allergic reaction – itchy mouth, ears, throat, eyes (and bottom! ) and cold, cold, chills. the rituxan was immediately d/c’d, and I had a rapid flash cadre of six nurses to make sure all would continue well. I LOVE those nurses, they are SO good to me! I was so amazed to feel the ick quickly recede – the chills stayed for about an hour, but ooooo, love those soft blankies from the nice warmer they fetched for me. Adam had just texted me from work so I let him know – he was at my side quickly – and the nurses all gave him support and reassurance, and he stayed with me for as long as he was able before returning to work. The nurses said we’d wait, run a different pre-med, then resume the rituxan – again very slowly. I was fine, but just got a bit weary of sitting so long. finally at about five pm it was all done, and Adam came to bring me home. He helped with Sadie, took the trash to the curb, got the mail, and made sure I was okay.
Thank you for your lovely notes and good wishes for me. I feel so very optimistic and am wearing a beautiful, soft, golden mantle of love, peace, and gratitude. Oh, and I forgot to mention – I removed 3 photos from our wedding album to show everyone, and kept them by my side as I was being treated. Made me and everyone else smile and give me hugs – they all knew Hugh, and I was so happy that they got to see my knight in shining armor, and hear all the oooos and ahhhs, and share a lot of happy memories.
So glad you’re okay so far, Karen! And of course, it’s not unusual at all that they find they have to slow down chemo infusions & give you a few extra things to minimize side effects. I’m so glad the nurses were vigilant and jumped on it right away. Hope it continues to go well & that it WORKS!! Sending lots of love. Thank you, Marie, for posting this for everyone. <3, Kathi
Love you, Karen!

I was diagnosed with breast cancer and i lived with that diagnosis for more than 3 years, spending all I have and losing my self in the process, its what I wouldn’t want to see any person go through, Luckily i had an encounter with Dr Jose, a renowned Italian doctor that helped me overcome my cancer in less than two and a half months, just with the use of herbal medicine and spiritual help, i can now boldly say I am cancer free and a proud living testimony,he is known to be able to tackle any type of cancer found in the human body, God forbids any one should suffer here on earth, thats why I believe he created all these herbs, if you also want to clear your doubts and fight cancer to the barest minimum, take the bull by the horn and avoid death, you can contact my Doctor, by his email firstname.lastname@example.org
