Just to let you know that I am about to undergo yet another chemo series. The relief I got from the Taxotere has been short lived (as have all my treatments so far but I had high hopes for the Taxotere) & I am now out of partial remission & this bloody disease is on the rampage again. My oncologist tossed up the various options (we are fast running out of them now) & decided to go for CMF ( Cyclophosphamide, Methotrexate & 5-fluorouracil) as opposed to straight Xeloda (which converts to 5-fluorouracil in the body). Needless to say I am not looking forward to this as 4 months without chemo has been so good & my hair was growing back in so well (I even had a hair cut last week). Now I will be on treatment all through our southern hemisphere summer again & this treatment makes you very sun-sensitive. Great in a country with the highest UV rates in the world. I know I can make it again with all the support & help I get from my family & friends (I mean you my sisters)but I see so many paralells between me & Rosa now that it's getting scary & every tretment down is one less option. So pray for me please. I have had to give up work again as the pain levels have become horrendous so hopefully will have more time to devote to the site that I have sadly neglected due to tiredness in the past few months. Next week marks 2 years since I found you all.
Love & hugs to you all
