It seems like such a success when the pump comes off!  This one was a little rougher because of the shingles  In any case, I'm grateful for the support and strength you have all shown. My goal was to get to six and then make choices. i feel tired, sore and happy!

It may be the Shingles and it may just be the side effects from the chemo. The first few days after I got unhooked from the pump were the worst (until the end, when they were all pretty lousy). 

I hope you don't mind me sharing your birthday here on the forum.

My life is pretty much an open book!  Thank you for the birthday wishes. I do have trouble day 4-5-6-7. That seems to be the pattern. This time my hands and feet are discolored. Tingly but not painful.

I didn't have that problem until right at the end of treatment. My hands were almost purple. 

Be sure and let your Oncologist know. Take pictures and show him when you go in next (if he hasn't already seen them).  He may lower the dose if it gets too bad.
