So far, so good with my new chemo regimen. I take Oxaliplatin once every 3 weeks and Xeloda daily (7 pills). The pills are really the worse part - it is getting harder every day to down them. But so far no vomiting or diarrhea - some nausea, but manageable. Not exactly the way I wanted to spend another Christmas holiday.
I would like to wish everyone out there all the health and happiness this holiday season. We are a great support group and it would have been difficult for me to have come this far with a positive outlook if it weren't for all of you.
Let's all hang in there and keep fighting and praying for a cure.
Thanks Aspaysia for the info on creating great photo memories to share online. I finally did compile some of my own.
If you check it out though, make sure you correctly type "angelfire" and NOT "anglefire". The result is not a pleasant surprise and certainly NOT my photos. lol
One of my very best friends was just diagnosed with adenoidcystic carcinoma last week. She and I now go to MD Anderson in Houston together for our treatments. Please keep her in your prayers also, for me. Her cancer is very rare and prognosis is poor.
My best to you all.
