Hi Loves... I haven't been here in awhile and I wanted to read through posts to see how everyone was doing. Sorry I've been absent for awhile, but been real busy with chemo treatments, granddaughters and a new puppy! I must be crazy, but this little (quickly getting larger!), ball of fur has made me very happy.
For those of you that don't know me, I was diagnosed in May 2006, 3c and went thru the surgery and chemo and stayed NED for 3 years. I had a recurrance and have been on chemo for the last 4 years. I know how scary that must sound, but my disease is being treated as cronic and I remain stable. It's a new normal way of life for me. I'm given cisplatin w/gemzar one week and gemzar the next and then I have 2 to 3 weeks off. I plan my vacations and activities around the weeks I know I'll feel strong. My friends and family say things like " Does that date fall into a chemo or non-chemo week? "
