Sorry that I haven't written in awhile. Been really busy caring for mymother. The last time I wrote, mom's counts were next to nothing andshe was running a fever. She spent a week in the hospital, and had totake a break on the chemo, which was again cut in half. Mom's scan Sept.2nd showed no new growth. I upped Benefin shark cartilage powder to150 gms per day, since she took none for 6 weeks due to kidney failurein May. She is only taking a small amount of chemo orally, and takingrest periods from that in order to prevent her counts from dropping again. My thanks to all of you for your prayers, and words of encourage-ment, especially to you Suzi! All of you are in my prayers, and I thinkof you each and everyday! I am so relieved to hear that Nola's vomitingwas due to her medication, Linda. I truly believe in Nola's shark cartilage therapy, because I see my mother's progress. Her next scan isin about 6 weeks, and I will keep you posted. I read the message fromCarlos, and I am also happy to help anyone interested in shark cartilagetherapy. I hope anyone reading this posting will consider it. My momhas extensive disease, and her primary tumor is now ill-defined, withno new cancer growth. Love, Suzanne
