We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

So the main thing is that the brain scan showed no cancer.

It has progressed, however, to worse than when she started chemo, but is staying to the places where it's already been, liver, bones, pelvis, etc....

Trina sees her doctor again on Monday and she will start a new chemo IV.

All in all it's not the best news but far from the worst.

We still have much to be thankful for and are very blessed this Christmas.

Happy Holidays to everyone!

Happy Holidays Cameo! Trina & your family are never far from my thoughts & prayers. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.

No brain tumor - that's good news! And we'll take good news where we can get it. I'm praying for Trina's doctors too, that they can free her from this cancer.
