Sorry I haven't been on lately...my parents came to visit. We had a great time, and they were wonderful about giving me time to nap too! They drove all the way from Nebraska, about 3 days. My dad, crazy guy, loaded up stuff for a yard sale and we did that while they were here. I couldn't get him to take anything back to sell there though. LOL
The visit with the onc wasn't so fun...I've been coughing and it's often not controllable and often constant....trouble with the pulse ox at chemo, trouble breathing under any exertion. The doc said that if it doesn't get better he's going to put me on oxygen. And I now have skin mets on my chest...they're basically lots of little local recurrences...itchy and painful. So I'm constantly rubbing and scratching in my bra...very attractive let me tell you.
We are giving the current chemo, eribulin, one more infusion to complete another cycle. That will be two complete cycles. Then we're going to do another CT scan and appointment. I'll let you know what happens.
