Katie's plan...

As much as I want to be there to help and watch over my mom, my husband needs me home some times. So for now, while my mom is still strong I am home with Eric and the kids in Washington. It's hard to be here when I feel needed there,and hard to be there when my husband is here. So I go where I am most needed. I plan to go back to Ashton in a few weeks, for the end of the treatments. That's when most people get really sick and tired and need help. For now, I need you Ashton-ites to be eyes, ears, and hands. Please tell me if you see a need that is not being met so I can make arrangements. Please let me know if there is something you would like to do to help, but are unsure. Please contact me with questions or concerns. Also, if you see that things are worse than I realize, please let me know so I can come sooner. One more thought. Your kind words and letters of encouragement will be the best support. The only thing better is your prayers.

Chemo/Radiation Take Two

It's been a while since I gave you all an update, but there hasn't been much to tell. Surgery went well. After about ten days of recovery Kathy started chemotherapy and radiation treatments yesterday, March 7. She is doing chemotherapy at home and radiation daily in Idaho Falls. She is so tough! Her attitude and spirits are great. Please keep her in your prayers though, as this is a very physically challenging time for her.
The plan, for now anyways, is to do this chemotherapy and radiation for 5-6 weeks and then have a recovery time before another surgery, followed by more chemotherapy.
It us critical during chemotherapy that she be kept healthy, and her resistance will be dramatically weakened. If you are sick or you kids are suck, please be very aware and do what you can to keep the whole Anderson family healthy. Thank-you
