I am desperate for help. thanks so much

Hi Sherry,
I'm sorry you are having problems with nausea. It wasn't a problem for me. I had 2 different kinds of medicine for nausea...Zofran-8mg and Compazine-10mg but never had to use either one. Maybe once the chemo starts leaving your body, the nausea will subside. My Onc said the chemo works in our body up to 6 months after finishing treatment. I sure hope it gets better for you. Let us know how you progress. Much love...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

Dear Sue,

I am so busy these days. I do try and read each and every post. Thank you
for the picture of baby Lizzie. I'm in love with her already. Nothing like
a new baby, and her new start in life. God Bless her. She is just beauiful.
What a face.

I hope everything is well with you. You are never far from my thoughts.

All my love Maggie

Hi Maggie,
I think we are all pretty busy, now that summer is here. Yes indeed...Lizzy has brought me more joy than I ever thought possible. Of course I'm a little partial...but I too think she's beautiful as can be...ha! All "IS" well with me, and I'm now looking forward to going on vacation on the 23rd. The kids will be coming down on one weekend with Lizzy, so at least I won't have to go 2 weeks without seeing her. I'll have my laptop with me and will be checking in while we are gone. Thanks for thinking of me Maggie...you are such a sweetie! Enjoy the warm summer...Fall will be here before we know it!
Love you...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)
