Re: [MOL] Betty



Are the tumors on your lung considered liver tumor mets?  I am just needing
your help on keeping my mind straight.  I am so happy you took a month off
for you and traveled and did some things you wanted to do.  I am keeping you
in my prayers that the Gemzar will do the trick and disappointed the
Thalidmide did not, I had such high hopes for it. Love you pal, lillian
