A big thank you to all of you who participated in the Figaro’s fundraiser for Lisa and Randy, it was a big success! Lisa and her family stopped by the West Salem Figaro’s to get their pizza around 5:00, and stayed for awhile to say “Hi” and visit with friends that came to support them by eating pizza for dinner! The owner of Figaro’s were so friendly and great, they even came out to pose in some pictures with Lisa. I was most impressed with who ever was in the big heavy Figaro man suit standing out on the curb in the 80 degree weather waving to people to let them know of the fundraiser! What a trooper!
If you saw Lisa that night you would have noticed the new hair-do she was sporting. Just the day before she received another wig, the first one was shorter and blond, and this one was dark and long! Both look equally stunning! Lisa was in a wheelchair with a boot on her leg and a big splint on her arm. There are still a few tubes sticking out, but overall she looked really good. She is able to walk a little on the boot, but has to be very careful. Of course, she is still on quite a bit of pain medication so with the recovery and the pain meds she wears out pretty fast.
Lisa still has about a week off before starting the next rounds of chemo. They are treasuring this time. As of now, they have not heard the results of the pathology that will determine the course of this chemo. There are several options and they hope they get to go the route of the one that last for 18 weeks. If not, there are also chemo sessions that last around 24, 36 and 48 weeks.
So again, thanks to all of you who follow this blog and are so faithful to pray and support Lisa.
