Hey Sharlene, only 3 more after today (woohoo) and I'm only a week behind. I hope the neupogen is getting the job done and keeping you on schedule, I got stepped up to 4 shots now for the duration. I'm off to get a pet scan today so I'll keep everyone posted on the results. I sure hope Santa gives us our lives back for Christmas ;) Be well Shar and I'll talk to ya soon. Aaron

Hey Aaron,
I'm doing great!!! Three quarters of the way there!
The neupogen seems to be working great. I started out with five shots, then did four and it looks like I will be doing four until the end. The oncologist that I talked to about it last time said that it didn't seem to be too helpful if it was less than four shots. Not my favourite part of the day when I have to do it, but hey, if it keep the chemo on track, I'll do it!

As I said before, I won't get a pet scan until the end of January, but I'm pretty sure that the chemo is doing some good. I cannot feel any lymph nodes in the axillary area (where they were very large before chemo) and my breathing is so much better, so I think the medial stinal mass must also be shrinking. But, I'll just have to wait and see.

How are you doing? When is your next chemo? Friday?
