    Yay, you're back!

    Hope you continue to improve.  that irinotecan is a ****.  The first time I took it, I had awful diarhea for almost 2 weeks after the 4th infusion.  Never went to the ER but I should have.  I'd get dizzy and walk into walls.  I'm on it again, only half strength, and the heartburn is incredible.  Just 2 infusions and it's unrelenting.  Even the 800 cimetidine doesn't help.

    Anyway, I'm glad you're recovering and it's nothing more than a bad reaction.  Traci

    We are glad that you are

    We are glad that you are home!   One can heal faster in their own home, because they can relax.  I never really relax in the hospital.

     

    We are still sending our thoughts and prayers for fast healing.

     

    Best Always,  mike

    That has to be such a great word and I'm hoping that you will feel better being there.  You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Glad you are feeling better.  Hope that it continues and thank you for the update even though you have been so ill.  You are such a daughter of your mother and can see the strength you get from her by both your posts.

    Hugs!  Kim

    Thoughts and Prayers

    Hi JBG.  We haven't officially met, but I've been reading lots about you and am glad you're back home and the doc thinks he has a handle on what's going on with you.  You are in my thoughts and prayers, and I wish you a very speedy recovery.

    I'm chiming in late here,

    I'm chiming in late here, have not been on this site for a while and have missed so much.     You've been through a real scare, hope you are feeling better.   Have they stopped the irinotecan for now??
