An update on Kerri's Path to recovery. | July 28, 2016 at 08:59AM

Hello everyone, Hope all is well.   An update regarding Kerri’s on going treatment. Yesterday, her Chemo treatment went well.  While Kerri smiles it away, in my opinion it was a much harsher experience than the previous four treatments.  Paclitaxel is a substantially more aggressive medication.  It necessitates Benadryl and couple of other drugs (steroid based), inoculated intravenously, beforehand.  This is to mitigate the elevated risk of an allergic reaction to its exposure. These medications certainly had their impact on Kerri. She was drowsy and had almost a three-hour nap during her treatment ☺. When we drove her home she was still nodding on and off. Veer’s comment was “ Mommy is very quite today.”   I resisted the urge to say something funny ☺. Watching this video (  you can hardly tell that this brave woman is going through such a struggle. She is a fighter and she will come through a winner. As my sister writes here (, “cancer just picked the wrong Irish woman to pick a fight with”. For the next few days, we are to keep a close watch to see if any symptoms of an allergy develop. The next few days are critical.  A heartfelt thanks to Ratika and her mom.  They have Kerri’s chemo dates marked on their calendars and on those days they prepare for her a weeks worth of delicious and healthy dishes. These are foods that are known to boost the immune system and overall health.  Vegetables like Okra, Squash, Eggplant, White Radish, apple gourd and turnip.  Breads made from Pearl Millet, Chickpea and Lentil flour. Kerri loves them.   Many thanks to all of you, friends and family who stand with Kerri during her path to recovery. It is much appreciated. As always if you need more information please feel free to call me (403) 975 7667 and or email me.  You may also visit her blog for updates. Thank you Best Regards     Ron Singh from Ron

  1. Kerri! Good to year that you are a fighter and that you have such great support around you. I am so glad that we are friends and relatives (although it may be a distant connection it still counts! Thanks Johnson-Pilling clans). Keep going and may the next two visits to the cancer clinic help immeasurably! Sending my thoughts and love to you and your family!
