Hey everyone... its June 7th already! Well i had my MRI today..LaRae came with Jesse, and my momma..:) I got my port done on the first floor..and got my favorite nurse...she cracks me up.. she was talking about how Jesse looks soo cute..and said hes been working out :) haha also she asked if i got implants....HA i was like no!! she said well they are getting bigger..omg. i love that lady she makes me smile every time i have to get my port done.. and she is soo good at it too.
So We had the MRI on the 2nd floor.. And Jesse always comes in the room with me and holds my hand..so within like 15minutes of the MRI i noticed his eyes were closed..and my feet were by him..soo i kicked him..HAha and I got in trouble because i moved.. UGH the lady wasnt NIce at all.. but i was bored..and wanted to kick him while i was in the TUNNEL. (MRI) Anywho.. then they injected the contrast in me.. which taste yucky!! then another 15 minutes..... i almost fell asleep.
So when we got out.. We had to go and get my port de-axcessed (sp) and they did that on the second floor as well. so we had to wait 20 minutes because of the contrast they put in me to make sure im not havin any side affects from it.. SOOO we wait.. and this lady next to us is getting poked with a needle by this lady.. and she kept missing..UGH!!! this is whyi go to the 1st floor, they NEVER Miss!! any way this lady is like screaming because it hurts so bad.. and i am sooo thankful i did NOT get my port axcessed up here. Awhile back they missed like 4 times in my port.. ouch right into my tissue.. and its a BIG needle.
So Then we were waiting for the elevator.. and this lady we met had brain cancer as well and she gave me a sticker that says "fu** Cancer" ahh?! she was nice but seemed angry about her havin it.. but..u cant be angry.. because it is what it is u know?? u cant change it.
So then we went to the 5th floor to meet up with my doctor. today it was Carrie Grahmn, she is such a amazing doctor..she saw me getting my vitals done.. and she was like hey everytihng looks good!! and ill see u in a seccond! and that was just a big weight lifted off of my shoulders..so we met up with her.. they went over my blood work.. phosp. was a 1.3 Ah oo.... LOW!! but 2 weeks ago it was a 2.5 that gadtech really messed that up. Oh well now i gotta take a suplement again for awhile.
also my liver count was a little high... but it always has been.. they say i have a fatty liver?! but nothing to be worried about! SO.. We looked at my MRI and it was amazing...looking.. and only seeing my brain. and the hole where the tumor was. and nothing else! WE were all soo happy :) so in 2 months i will have another MRI :)
So we wanted to celebrate.. and get lunch/din so we drove to the speagetti factory.. and it was closed..aahhhh...dang so we went to the cheesecake factory.. YUMM our waitress was soo nice...we were messing with her and she was jus laughin the whole time. So what else...
We get to jesse and my house.. and my neighbor Neil came over with flowers... haha hes like 12.. i was like ahh.. such a sweetheart. He got me Lillys..they smell sooo goood!!!! THANKS NEIL. Then my other neighbor came over Laurie and was excited to hear the news as well.. we were in the backyard trying to catch the tadpoles i put in our pond.. we caught them at my parents cabin.. they were BULL FROG tadpoles.. and well i read about them and they eat fish...AHHH!!! i have goldfish in there soo jesse finally caught them, i gotta put them in a lake somewhere.
Well June 18th i am going to alaska!!! with my uncle gayle! i am sooo excited i am gonna be there for 4 days.. FISHING!! Its gonna be so much fun! im gonna be the only girl with all my family there.. so i gotta prove im not girly girl. :) THank you uncle gayle for taking me!! we are gonna have fun!

my name is shelby Wedlund. I am 24 years old and was diagnosed with brain cancer last year in may.I had brain surgery and under went chemo and radiation. And a experimental drug called "gad-tech" i just recently got off of chemo and I am doing MRI's every two months to make sure that my glioblastoma isnt coming back.:)
On Saturday, June 26, 2010 I will be participating in the Brain Cancer Walk, . As part of this event we will raise funds to support brain cancer research and patient care in the Pacific Northwest.
Fighting brain cancer is truly a team effort. By joining me in this mission, we can help bring together those who care about advancing therapies for patients. The mission is clear to accelerate the development of treatments that will lead to a cure for brain cancer.
Each year, nearly 22,000 Americans - 1,200 in the Pacific Northwest - are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. With limited treatment options and a life expectancy of only one to two years, brain cancer is a frightening disease to face. Those directly and indirectly impacted by brain tumors are depending on us to help bring hope to their struggle.
So please help me raise some money to find a cure for brain cancer!!!

Hey everyone .. Well My MRI went well. When we looked at it.. there was just more scar tissue.. which is normal.. due to the radiation. I went to the UW instead of scca. The Mri machine was smaller.. so i felt a lil clastophobic...(sp) and i didnt take any medicine to relax me.. so i was tense at first.. but i got used to it. What else..I stoped takin my antiacid.. because i started to get a bad ache/cramp/burning feeling under my left lower rib area.. and it was messing with my tummy really bad. also i have been ichy.. and kinda have a yellow tint to me.. barley. but still. So i am gonna call my doc tomorrow, and see what i can do. What else.. My sis gets to find out whats shes having on my b-day.. March 12.. I think its gonna be a boy! Matts bday is the 11th, and my dads is the 13th. O and my brothers is the 27th! i am gonna have a bday party at jesse and my house so whoever is welcome to come! Friday the 12th around 6. BYOB :) if needed. well what else is new.??? ahh i got WIFI finally. this is why it has taken me so long to write back. i was getting it free.. from one of my neighbors.. and i think they finally got rid of it. so i had to FInally get it after almost 4 years. So now its fast.. Ah.. hmmm. jesse and ihave been working on the yard.. I have pulled soo many weeds.. its crazy when a year goes by.. how much ur yard can change. So We are getting it back into shape! My brother came over and cut a tree down.. and trimmed alot of our trees in the back.. it looks soo nice!

Well This was my last month for my chemo.. and Truthfully I didnt take it.. :/ I was going to try to take it but i knew i was just going to throw it up. So i did not take it. I know.. I know i should have.. but it just makes me feel soo horible. I have not told my doctors yet... but it is what it is.. I dont want to be critisized.. u know. Its my body.. and i know whats right. But when i was supossed to take my chemo i was not feeling good at all either. My heartburn has been REALLY bothering me. I get it everynight.. in my lower and upper back.. so painful where theres nothing u can do.. it actually makes me cry sometimes.. i went to the docter and they said everyting looked fine.. with my ultra sound.. the only thing was my liver was a lil imflamed. they said its from takin so much medicine. So they prescrribed me a ULTRA antiacid... to i am hoping it will help.. they say it will hopefully kick in within a week. Thank goodness that this pill i gotta take isnt too big and doesnt taste funny. I couldnt tell you the last time i ate red sauce... pizza.. mexican food...enchaladas.. mmmmm.... SO i really cant wait till i can eat some normal food. Well what else has been going on.. I have been working on my backyard... picking up a bunch of branches..dog poop. haha Jesse worked on the front yard and we finally took the xmas lights down from outside ... haha ya.. a lil late i know ...Also i want to thank Steve and Dorlee for the card, and the "believe" notepad i really like it :) U guys are very thoughtful.. i appreciate it. Also Kelly thank you for my lil license with my name on it :) its by my bed.. its so cute thank again for everything!!!!! Oh and Jesse and i ate on the porch today.. its sure nice havin the overhang.. thanks kelly and gene.. Love u all guys!!
Well i have this site where u can ask me any questions.. so feel free to :)
