Hello everyone ! I've been MIA for a few days and I apologize, so so much going on getting ready to start chemo. I went to my doctor on this past Thursday to talk about my chemo and meet with some other doctors just to chat about what is about to happen to me. Overwhelming I must say. They are combining chemo with Herceptin every 3 weeks and Perjeta. But first I must have a few more tests to make sure that the cancer hasn't spread anywhere else besides where it is now which is my left breast with liver mets. Tomorrow is a MRI of my brain to make sure I have nothing up there ( NO pun intended ) then after that test I am going right into surgery for the port. On Friday I have a PET test. The following Monday is a MUGA Scan and a chemo class and the next day I meet again with my doctor to get the ok to start chemo. I am soo soo soo overwhelmed that this is the first time I have actually sat down long enough to remember and remind myself that this place is where I belong and where I need to be. So here I am ! Im scared but confident and have faith that I will be ok through all this. Im frightful about the fact that he said I will be loosing my hair fast. Yikes.....Oh I think I forgot but the other chemo treatment is Taxotine ? Im trying to read my docs writing lol so please correct me if Im wrong. I would also love any tips or tricks or just your kind thoughtful words on any of what is about to go on this week and next. Thank you so much for you all being here, each and every one of you I am giving a BIG BIG ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((hug))))))))))))))))))))))))))) ! I will keep posting and reading and even just visiting and sitting quiet but I'm here.
