I have had to cancel so many plans over the past few years I hardly dare even think about them very directly. But, in the midst of a fairly brutal chemo regime, I actually managed to go away for a nine day holiday with my honey. IT WAS DIVINE! My oncologist (conservative!) was great in allowing me to go (and telling me I could text him 24/7), I carried a mini-pharmacy with me, including two courses of antibiotics 'just in case', and I had to go in for a blood test 1 hr after stepping off the plane -- but it was so worth it. I didn't actually believe I was going till the plane took off. Total relaxation at a beach resort -- bit of yoga, bit of beach walking, bit of paddling in the pool, and a whole lot of nothing. I just can't believe it -- so wonderful. I missed you all -- but you understand!!
ps I will probably be changing from GOLF-A to Gemzar plus Xeloda plus Avastin soon. I'm looking forward to the possibility...
