I had another follow-up appointment at Moffitt today and the news is good. My scan last month came back without any changes or new cancer growth so while I’m still considered high risk and will be monitored closely and the suppression therapy will continue – and I’ll continue to deal with the side effects – the visit was very positive.

Since I arrived early for my appointment, I found my way to the volunteer office and asked about whether they accepted donations of crochet afghans and quilts. They said they would be very happy to receive donations and that they went mostly to patients receiving infusion and chemotherapy services. I didn’t take them with me today but you know I’ve been making a bunch and have some ready to donate. I will probably wait a month or two and add to this batch before taking them since it’s a bit of a drive and I won’t have any appointments there in the next few months.

(The smaller child and baby size ones go to GA to an organization that helps abused kids).


  1. Excellent news about your stable health reports. Donations mean more than we know. Our granddaughter was in the NICU after she was born and was given a little quilt while she was there. Meant a lot to me.

  2. God is good So glad about your scan Donations —my mom was at Roswell in NY It was such a blessing They even had yarn for folks to do a square while They waited n another volunteer created blankets from the squares I want to do some and take for my next visit Visit home Each person there touched hearts and lives
