I found the posting a few minutes ago while map questing directions to a Holistic doctor. I am so sick, fatigued and weak. My oncologist and staff have never seen side efforts like the ones that I am experiencing. Have any suggestions been made to give me a week or 2 break .. NO .. believe me!!!

I collapse yesterday in the onc office after enduring 1 1/2 hours of herceptin drip .. all while throwing up. As of yesterday, I have lost 29 lbs in 10 weeks ... did I need to loss any weight, yes, but not like this.

Miss Bella Luna .. thank you for the posting, and I do feel stronger - mentality. TJ Hay, I still love you, but I truly have been bed ridden for over 10 days. And to the rest of you Prayer Warriors .. THANK YOU so very much from the bottom of my tired heart and soul.

I have a 9:30 a.m. appointment with Visceral Manipulation doctor (2 hour drive from our home), and 11:30 a.m. appointment craniosacral therispt. What I am trying to do for my poor tired and sick body is open up blood flow, cells, muscle and joints.

I am hoping to get some sort of relief tomorrow, so I can finish my TCH 18 week chemo treatment. 11/24 will be week #12 of 18 -- I'm into the double digits .. WOW ..

Keep strong my Prayer Warriors,, Chemo Chicks, and Rad Girls.

Your sister in PINK,

VickiSam

    I have nothing to offer you but all of the things your own avatar says~ those words are not abstract but REAL things to attach yourself to: Hope, Faith, Love, Courage, Strength. Know that your cyber sisters in pink are also real and in your corner at every turn. You are never more than a thought or prayer away from the hearts of so many of us who know and love you. Be well sweet sister....

    Hugs,

    Wishing you Quick Relief and Healing
    VickiSam, from your first posts, your strength of will and courage have shone through. You have suffered so much, yet you have soldiered on through 12 grueling treatments. You will cross the finish line. We all are praying for you and will be celebrating with you when that 18th and last treatment is done.
