Feeling better

I called my chemo doctor's office today and I feel much better. I asked her if my chemo doctor was giving up on me. She said just the opposite is true. They are trying me on camptosar alone, because when I had chemo last year, I obviously had it too, not that I remember though, but it's in my records. He said I had a very good response to it, so that's why he's using it again and that he wants to start out with one thing and then work up, if he has to. He wants to try and keep my counts up. He said that I have to have the chemo, no matter what. So, I guess this is a way of starting slow. They also are still giving me the shots for the white and red blood counts and I'm still taking iron. So, hopefuly this tumor will start to shrink. Let's all pray for this. I feel more hopeful today, thank goodness. And the little thread about the thongs, oh my goodness!! Had me laughing my head off. You all are great.
Love and prayers, Judy(grandma047)

Hi Judy,

I have been offline for awhile. I'm glad that you are feeling better about your treatment plan. Also, I must read the thong messages.

Take care,
