Amanda's Fight Blog · Dirty Details of Cancer

I’m still winning!

Well, I’ve finally started bouncing back from this trip  to MD Anderson. I just want to thank everyone who supported my travel expenses and treatment expenses. I would not have been able to go without your help.

Usually, we have many things go wrong on our trips. We just laugh anytime something crazy happens now, because it’s to be expected. Ha ha! But this trip went very well, and we had an afternoon on the beach. It’s about 45 minutes away from Houston. It was great to actually be able to speak to my husband… You know how life can be!

mommy with cancer, amanda krysa,

We had 3 different hotels over the weekend, in order to get medical rates through American Cancer Society. So, we were homeless everyday from 11-4 😉 But my amazing friend Virginia helped us with her husband’s travel points and got a very nice room for us at the Hilton for the last two nights. That was so sweet!! And it was very close to the hospital, we usually have a 15-20 minute drive from where we are put by the ACS.

My friend Elaine took us out to dinner on Sunday evening. So great to see her when we are in town. The first trip we made, she greeted us with a cooler full of food and things to do in the hospital. Elaine has been greatly supportive of my fight and I am so happy to know her. And it’s so nice to have a friendly face so far from home.

I had to be at the hospital at 6 am on Sunday morning, but I had to get up at 5 am in order to have my port accesssed for the CT scan. And my day went along from there with tests and treatment. Then back on Monday morning at 6am for the bone scan dose, and a day full of more appointments.

Doctor said the tumors are still stable, but there is a new lesion on my right arm. They are not sure if it’s actually breast cancer so they are keeping an eye on it. So, I am very happy about that! I have been working so hard to avoid GMO’s, anything processed, gluten, dairy, soy and sugar. I believe it’s paying off with no tumor growth for over a year!! I truly believe it’s what is causing cancer and I hope you all will start making a conscious effort to avoid this stuff too. It causes more than just cancer, look it up. So, my doctor said keep up the good work and she’ll see me in 4 months. I’ve been going every 3 months, so this is a treat. The last two appointments have been 4 months apart.

We left for our flight out of Hobby, which got delayed due to the bad thunderstorms. And we missed our connecting flight in Dallas Love Field. So we ended up in New Orleans. The flights were rough, flying between storms. I got very sick. I’m exhausted, to say the least. But very happy with my results!

Thank you again for your support!
