Well ladies, I hope this finds you all in good health, I will be incommunicado for the next week, I am going for my fifth dose of Taxol tomorrow and I am finding that it is getting harder to get over,I find it is starting to go more to my head and make me tired and stupid. For the first day after I lay on the couch and stare into space, then the pain hits,but it is not as bad as last time, I find that the pain did not hit this time until a week before I was ready for another dose. My hands and feet tingle all the time,it is really annoying. Well, my oldest son just told me my youngest who is 3 1/2 is in his bedroom swearing. Why is it that my oldest and my husband and myself are quiet,well mannered people and my youngest is such a devil? He is so bad, one of these kids that you see in the grocery store and swear your kids will never behave like that, well, i have one, anybody want him? He is very cute,but a badass.
Well all, take care and fight the good fight.
Hugs from Tiger

Hey Tiger. I'm with you girlfriend. Just kick back and let the world pass you by for a week. It'll still be there. And -- you will be one step closer to finishing treatemnt. And we are here all the time. Now as for the 3-1/2 year old, I, too, had a badass kid. I think everyone does but just doesn't like to admit it. Mine was my youngest, I have four. He is now 36 years old, responsible, and always there for me. So, there is hope. Remember that every time you are ducking out of a store and pretending you don't know who he belongs to. Love you.

Right on Ellen. My son has a 7-year-old who is ADHD just like his dad. I love it. I shouldn't have the glee that I have when my son tells me what his son did, but I can't help it. I kept the little bugger last night while his parents when to a movie because he "forgot" to bring his homework home. They expected him to write 25 sentences of "I will not forget my work." Well, I am his Nana, not his jailer, therefore he only got 15 done. But, I don't think he will forget his work anymore this week. Jane
