September 15 and beyond

This Thursday I had an appointment with the oncologist and began Herceptin only infusions. This is the estrogen blocker that was included in my chemotherapy. Now I will continue this drug every 3 weeks for the balance of a year (13 treatments).

On Friday I met with the radiologist and went over the plan for my radiation treatments. They will begin Monday October 3. I will have 17 treatments Monday-Friday for 3+ weeks.

In preparation for these appointments I had the latest covid booster and the flu shot this week as well. 

I'm good to go!

Blessings and peace to all of us!!!

Love, Gayle

This is Gary & Sharon Kistner. We live in Largo Florida , we had wind and rain but we're blessed with not losing power. We are fine and only had some down tree limbs and some fence blown down. Thank God we did not get the direct hit that was predicted.

Hello classmates, wishing everyone the best.  Happy all is well with you Gayle.  My wife fought the same battle with breast cancer.  She is doing well and we recently built a new house in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains in S.C.  We love it, not to far from Greenville.

Oct 22 - I finish active cancer treatment this Tuesday! That translates to chemo and radiation completed. Still have Herceptin infusions. And will begin Anastrozole for hormone therapy soon. The drug has some side effects I hope I don't get!!

Blessings and peace to all of us as we celebrate or have 76, 77 and 78 years young this year!!!

Hearing of Sandy's passing brings up a lot of memories! Of times our class has gotten together. Of reaching out with a card or a call! It seemed at the time that it would last forever! I talked to Katie last night. She's still laughing and remembering the old days too!!!

Blessings to all of us as we move through this time of our lives!!!

Love, Gayle

December 12

I checked in with Kathy today. She commented I have become too much of a stranger. So, I changed my photo to see if your recognize me! And to give you an update! 

I had my last radiologist visit today. She reminded me to continue to mask when I'm out. I'm not free napping anymore, i.e. for as long as I want. I set the timer for an hour. I don't drive after dark. So coming to Fairborn during the fall back hours is not realistic. I'll check back with you next spring.

I want to put my devotionals into a book. Began with thinking hard copy but believe now it should be an ebook. Our youth pastor is an illustrator and is currently working on some children's books for another pastor. I asked him to put me on his list, but no pressure.

My son and his family have been sick a lot this year. Some have had covid. The youngest, Ben is 8 and has had the flu, bronchitis and pneumonia. He was not hospitalized thank goodness.

When people ask how I'm doing, I respond with trying to stay out of trouble! The answers to that make me laugh out loud!! What's interesting is that those who don't know me come back with they bet that's difficult!!! 

Sending blessings and peace to all of you! Continue to stay safe!!

Love, Gayle
