On Tuesday mom's doc stuck his head in her room and said "you want to go home?!"

Believe me- mom was ready.

It's so wonderful having her home again. She's getting stronger day by day. She's soooo thin, but her colorful is wonderful, her eyes sparkle, and she's feeling so much better.

The doc's believe that this problem is the reason she hasn't been getting better since the beginning. Hopefully now she'll be on the road to recovery. She has an appt next week to see when she can start her chemo again.

Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers. They mean more to me than you'll ever know....

Yay! Glad to hear your mom is home. I'm sure she'll feel even stronger now that she is back in her own place.

(written September of 2005) I have learned much in the last nine months. I have read that ovarian cancer whispers. I say it screams. It just needs someone to listen. The American Cancer Society statistics for ovarian cancer estimate that there will be 22,220 new cases and 16,210 deaths in 2005. This is a death rate FOUR TIMES that of breast cancer.Almost 70 percent of women with the common epithelial ovarian cancer are not diagnosed until the disease is advanced in stage. The 5-year survival rate for these women is only 15 to 20 percent. This is unacceptable. Women need to be made more aware of the symptoms, and doctors need to listen to their patients. Especially when the patient tells them that they fear they have ovca, as my mother did for almost a year before she was finally diagnosed. It’s so sad and senseless when a woman knows the symptoms but can’t get anyone to listen to what she is saying.
