Hi to all of you!
As some of you know that have been on this site as long as I have, that I have taken weekly infusions of Herceptin for the past two years. I do believe it has saved my life, but I was getting really weary going to the doctor's every week for all this time. Boy, did I get a great surprize Tuesday when I saw the oncologist. He is taking me off the Herceptin for four weeks and then will check everything to see how I am doing and decide from there about the next month. I am doing so good right now and am so grateful to God for letting me have this four weeks even if that is all there is. I never take anything for granted any more - not the bad nor the good things.
I went into the oncologist's office determined to tell him I didn't think I needed any more Taxol because I was feeling so 'well', and WOW he not only agreed about the Taxol, but added the Herceptin. I already feel free even if I do have to go back for an infusion of Aredia, but I can manage that fine just once a month. Thank all of you for praying for me. The power of prayer is so awesome. I think I have said that many times before, but it is truly worth repeating. I just thank God for all His love and awesome power. We have to remember he is the 'potter' and we are the 'clay'; and we have to be acceptable of His will and not our own.
God bless each of you and may He fill your hearts with joy and wonder. I just want everyone to feel as happy as I do this very minute. I would turn a cartwheel if I was physically able (too old and stiff or that is my excuse now, come to think of it I never could turn a decent cartwheel, even when I was twelve years old - who cares, it's the thought that counts). I thank God for all of your prayers and support. You are a wonderful group to be a part of. I think we could make it together even on a deserted island.
Love and hugs,
