She posted a couple weeks ago on her profile
I haven’t forgotten about anyone. I’ve just been pretty sick and also focusing on my sister. (family, too!) Chemo is kicking my tail in the worst way. I’m seeing a new doctor next week, I really would like to improve my odds!

I am not connected to her on Facebook, though, so maybe there’s something more recent that someone can tell us about…

lefteh's avatar

There have not been any Facebook updates for quite some time, which is rather troubling to me.
Let’s keep her in our hearts and in our minds.

mangeons's avatar

I haven’t heard from her.

Sure hope she’s okay! ):

Dog's avatar

I am hoping she and her sister are on the mend. I will be orange as long as it takes to see our cak back!

Jeruba's avatar

I sent a query to Avvooooooo a couple of days ago because I thought she was staying in touch with Chris, but I haven’t heard back. That concerned me too.

Saturated_Brain's avatar

I myself have been wondering about her health… That woman’s seriously gotten me thinking for her for some reason…

casheroo's avatar

I believe something happened to her sister, but I can’t remember…I do hope she and her sister are okay.

Dog's avatar

@casheroo Her sister was in a bad car accident and was in intensive care.

janbb's avatar

@jmah and hearkat – Thanks for posting the question and the info. I keep looking for her posts….and wondering how she’s doing.

gailcalled's avatar

@all: I sent her a note on Facebook on Monday and have heard nothing back.

Dear dear Chris: The Fluther family is collectively wondering whether there is news, or what we might do to help. Radio black-out has us alarmed. OTOH, don’t waste any energy on us if you need it for yourself. Love, Gailcalled

Not a peep. Also concerned.

cak's avatar

I just signed on, it’s been a rough couple of weeks. I can’t sleep – bone pain. I’m not staying on, but I haven’t forgotten about anyone. I’ll talk to you all soon.

casheroo's avatar

@cak Oh cak it’s good to hear from you! So glad to just see your words. (((hugs)))

aprilsimnel's avatar

Deep sigh of relief. <3

mcbealer's avatar

hearkat's avatar

@cak: Thanks for checking in… best wishes to you and your sister.

cookieman's avatar

So nice to see that giraffe.

Take good care of yourself.

janbb's avatar

Hugs and best wishes Chris. Thanks for checking in.

jonsblond's avatar

So good to see you @cak! You are on my mind often. Take care of yourself and don’t worry about us. We know you’ll return when you are ready.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@cak…Good to see you here, honey. I have people asking me about you. Hang in there & come back to us when you can.

SuperMouse's avatar

@cak thank you for taking a moment to check in. Lots of love and prayers are coming your way!

avvooooooo's avatar

@Jeruba Sorry for the long time responding, bathroom renovation means less computer time. Hitting my left index finger with hammer while removing drywall exponentially reduced my desire to type. Better now, but still not great!

@cak What’s everyone for Halloween this year? And how was “Where the Wild Things Are?”

mangeons's avatar

Thatnks so much for posting @cak, and letting us know you’re okay! (:

Judi's avatar

Praer abounds for you my friend @cak !

marinelife's avatar

@cak Love you and stay strong. If we could each take a little of your pain or give you a little of our strength, we would. Since we can’t please accept our thoughts and our love.

Jude's avatar

Thinking about you, Cak…

Dog's avatar

Yes- I have been thinking about CAK too. Hoping the pain is leaving for good.

janbb's avatar

Halloween Pengy sends love to you Cak.

tedibear's avatar

Cak made an appearance on Facebook last night. She said that while she was awake she would enter the land of the living. :-)

Jude's avatar

An update on Facebook.

Cak:

Dealing with a lot of things lately – health (crappy), family (a bit frayed by the stress) and knowing the holidays are around the corner and dad is no longer here. However, there is a silver lining, I’m eating cheesecake.

augustlan's avatar

Cheesecake makes everything better!

Dog's avatar

The wonder of Cheesecake!!! YES!

marinelife's avatar

Cheesecake all around! Who among us could not use some?

@cak I am willing to show solidarity anytime by eating cheesecake with you!

jonsblond's avatar

I’m going to buy a cheesecake with strawberry topping when my husband gets home from work.

I’d make one but I’m much too lazy for that today!

Looking forward to your return @cak. We miss you!

Dog's avatar

AWESOME!!!! Cheesecake party in CAK’s honor!!!!

Jeruba's avatar

I’m there. @cak, I love you enough to eat cheesecake for you.

Cheesecake is one of my all-time great weaknesses.

janbb's avatar

I’,m making my cheesecake with pastry crust for you, Chris!

tedibear's avatar

A Facebook update from 8:40PM on Nov. 9 “Has realized that it is entirely possible to fry one’s brain on all the cancer drugs. I’m leaving post-it notes everywhere to remind myself where I am, who I am and what I need to be doing.”

aprilsimnel's avatar

GOOOO, Chris!

Darwin's avatar

Huh. I have to do the same thing with the Post-It notes, and I haven’t ever had chemo. However, I do live with teenagers.

Jeruba's avatar

Any update now at the first weekend in December?

Dog's avatar

Yesterday she posted on Facebook:

Chris Anne Why, oh why is my son ADDING to his Christmas List? My daughter asks for one thing – and it’s big. The boy wants little things…and lots of ‘em. I have a feeling I’m going to be in a Nerf War soon.

Thanks so much for reminding me to look! The update made my day!

marinelife's avatar

Yesterday at 9:44 PM she posted:

“To chemo or not to chemo….that is the question. Hmmmm…got a lot of thinking to do.”

tedibear's avatar

As of yesterday, she has decided to not do any more chemo. She’s going to go through the holidays to enjoy them (and her family!) and then start looking at experimental treatments.

Dog's avatar

Chris,

May your Holidays be wonderful, heartwarming and pain-free.

Saturated_Brain's avatar

Does anyone have any more updates on cak? It’ll be nice to know, especially during the Christmas period.

Judi's avatar

Last 2 facebook status updates:

“Do you smell the fumes coming from my head? Do you see them?? My camera…my pictures…G-O-N-E…GONE. Someone stole my camera. :( So many good pictures are now gone. I was going to upload them tonight…figures.December 16 at 5:32pm ”

“Holy cow. My kids convinced me to take the dogs to see “Santa Paws” – I must be insane. The smaller of the two growled, the entire time. I guess she’s getting a lump of coal! The big, not-so-bright one…she almost peed on Santa Paw’s foot. Only my dingy dogs.” December 15 at 2:56pm

janbb's avatar

@Judi Thanks for posting those.

cak's avatar

Yep. I heard from her…wait, I am CAK!

I was in the hospital for an extended stay. Pretty touch and go for a little while there, but I’m home again and hanging in there. Yes, the cancer is still there and yes it has spread. The doctors aren’t encouraging, but then again, I was “dying within days” in late January and early February and guess what..I’m still kicking!

laureth's avatar

cak's avatar

I’ve missed you guys! It’s sucked being too sick to even feel like using the laptop. I hate being out-of-touch with life. GRRRR!

tinyfaery's avatar

Dog's avatar

Tears of joy to see you here. I was so worried and very discouraged when I kept checking your facebook page and no news.
Lurve to you and continued prayer!

Nice to see you back after so long, cak. I hope you are well and best wishes to you always.

SOOO glad to see you here! (((((((HUGS!)))))))

cak's avatar

wow, I’d love to see how happy you were if I showered and returned from my absence…all in the same day? I did shower today! :)

Judi's avatar

Doesn’t the first shower feel great after being in the hospital?

cak's avatar

@Judi – That is such a freeing experience. My shower, my stuff, my towels, my robe and my bed to fall into! Just a wonderful thing.

janbb's avatar

@cak As my Dad used to tell me, “Keep enjoying all the good stuff.” So glad to see your posts.

cak's avatar

@janbb – Your Dad had it right, and I’m very happy to be posting. :)

aprilsimnel's avatar

There is nothing like a good shower. At home.

Your strength is an inspiration, @cak! Bless you.

marinelife's avatar

The sensual pleasure of a shower when you are feeling the need cannot be matched. I am so happy that you are home again.

hearkat's avatar

@cak: Welcome back! You’ve been missed, and it is Sooooo nice to see you here again!
