I am home safe and sound after my first pertuzumab-trastuzumab-docetaxel.  Had steroids and aloxi ahead of time.  I don't remember any benadryl, but that is probably a good thing as benadryl hypes me up (I know it's weird).  Did very well-just a little nausea and fatigue, but I felt that going in. 

Thanks for all of the support and prayers!  I definitely felt them today!  Love you all!

Been thinking about you today as you started your protocol.  I have good feelings about this for you, but I hate, hate, hate that so many of the people I love have to go through chemo. 

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

I just read that trastuzumab and pertuzumab are the two drugs I will receive if the PRO Onc Assay study comes back positive for HER2.  I feel better just knowing you are taking those drugs.  I didn't see any mention of docetaxel but I might have missed it (it's a lot to read).  You rest up and let the chemo "take care" of those cancer cells.

Hope things are still working out and that you found the combo drugs doable.
