I hate to talk about my reoccurence, I do not want to scare anyone, But, anyway, I do have some good news. I just had my 3rd round of chemo yesterday, i was so exhausted, my nurse actually told me that chemo hits harder the second time around, can you imagine? I saw the doctor, he sees a great inprovement. My swollen lymph node is gone, my liver is not as swollen as it was, he can manually feel this. My blood tests are coming back good. I do have some pain in my right side, which is normal, he said. My insurance has not approved the drug Avastin to be used with Herceptin and Taxol, but he believes that his treatment is working. whew! Best news of all, no chemo next Thursday! He is giving my body a break. I have alot of plans next week since it is a holiday weekend and my daughters birthday is Friday. Hubby and i are going away for a few days, so I should be feeling good, we are staying in the area, about 60 miles from home. I have not lost a hair on my head, so I think i will get thru my vacation without having to be worrying about being bald and sick. So my mantra of the day is "Life is Good". Remember that I love you all and pray for you every day.
