Hi, i'm Katie,an Irish redhead living in the Tampa Bay area. I'm 37, divorced, dating casually & living life to it's fullest. People say i'm funny but i'm just me being me, i like having fun (who doesn't?)) but being serious in life is always a requirement. Anyway..hi, glad to meet ya!!
carouselkatie26: Hi everybody, i haven't been around much lately..i'm undergoing chemo therapy as i was diagnosed with stage 2 esophogeal cancer about 2 weeks ago. I'm still able to eat & drink a wee bit but doctors are talking about a feeding tube because of my weight loss, i'm down from 122 pounds to just above 100. My spirits are up & i'm handling this pretty good @ the moment. Just wanted you all to know that i'm still here...just a little more adversity to fight off. I love you all & hope to see you all with better news soon-

carouselkatie26: Thank q all for your kind words & prayers...they are very much appreciated..round 3 of chemo this coming Friday-2 hours @ hospital then i wear a "fanny pack" for 48 hours, then a VNA nurse comes to my house on Sunday to disconnect the pack from my port, usually a sick day follows but they've given me nausea pills to combat that...chemo is a nasty thing but if it helps shrink the tumor then they can operate to remove the rest of it. Right now i'm worried about losing my beautiful red hair ::chuckle::..anyway thats where everything stands right now..no idea how i contracted this but my doctor team thinks it might have been from using Zantac, so beware of any heartburn medication..i was using that to protect my stomach lining from the pain pills from my neck operation.
carouselkatie26: bought my new swimming pool today...should be delivered & set up by the weekend..woohoo!...also bought new arm water wingies for when i go in it...Minion themed of course ::eyelash flutter::
