It's been quite a while since I've posted and I thought I'd check in. For those who I haven't met, I was diagnosed 3C in May 2006, had a terrific 3 year remission and have been chemoing again for the last 3 years. I know that sounds very scary, especially to those who are now in chemo treatment and counting them down. I have chemo this afternoon actually. I have cisplatin/gemzar one week, gemzar the next and then two weeks off. It's become my normal..... crazy, huh. I want to let those who might be told they are no longer in remission, that living with this is possible. My counts are stable at around 56, not normal, but I'll take it. I won't tell you that it's easy, but "being there is priceless". I have to juggle around dates to be able to attend b-day parties, etc., but I'm there! Everytime I get feeling like I just can't do this anymore, I close my eyes and think of all my sisters, that I have loved on this board, who are no longer with us.
My youngest granddaughter was born while I was having my debulking surgery. I plan to dance up a storm at her 7th birthday party this May. I consider myself a very lucky woman! ((((((HUGS))))) Maria
