Sorry I haven't been on too much lately. I've been reading, but just not time to respond. I see so many new members. My greetings to you all and welcome to our "family"!! :-) I know that you will find all the support, comfort, and strength that you need from this site. I shall try to e better about "putting in my two cents worth" as I have done in the past. Just give me some time. You can also e-mail me at any time. Anyone heard from Pam, Rosa, Cher, Mary Ann (Newton), Angie, or some of the other "older" members? I have been wondering about all of them/you lately. Sure do hope that things are going well for everyone!!!
Anyway, just thought I would share (before I go to sleep for the night) that I had my 3rd Taxol treatment today. I will have my LAST one in just 19 DAYS!!!!! Therefore, the countdown has begun.......
Things are going remarkably well with the Taxol. I have to get 5 Neupogen shots following the chemo. I really do not like getting "stuck" but the shots have certainly helped. I have had so much more energy this time around than I did with the A/C. My son even has remarked at how much more energy I have had!!! I am also taking the Glutamine (10g 3 times per day for 5 days after chemo). It seems to be helping the numbness and tingling in my fingers and toes.
Thanks, all for being here for me. I have truly been blessend and uplifted by all of your messages of encouragement, prayers, and the occasional "kick in the pants". Just wanted you to know that I am still here and beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!! I shall try to respond to you all individually as soon as I can. The oldest goes back to college tomorrow and then perhaps life will settle down a little bit!!! In the meantime, just know that I am here for you and you can e-mail me anytime and I will try to get back with you as soon as I can.
One last request. Could you all say a prayer for my son? He will be 13 in two weeks and has developed a hard spot under his left nipple area. In the last day, it has started to swell up a little. Needless to say, we are just a bit concerned. He is about to hit puberty, so I am hoping that this is due to hormone changes. I know that he is worried that it is something really bad. I am taking him to the doctor about it tomorrow afternoon. Please pray that the doctor can tell us what it is and that it is nothing serious. Thanks in advance for your prayers on his behalf. I am so paranoid about things like this, that I am almost ready to lose it...you know, thinking the worst, etc.
It is late and I really must go and get to sleep so I can start the madness all over again in a few hours. Take care and keep looking up. You are all in my thoughts and prayers constantly.
Love and blessings to you all......Wendy
P.S. For any of you new to the site, I do not have a web page yet....I'm working on it. If you care to know more about me and my "story", just go w-a-a-a-y back to my entry on the Board on February 20 of this year. Again, take care and have a really great day!! :-) web
