I have completed 7/12 Taxol treatments. I went for #8 today but they could not do chemo because my counts were too low. I really needed a break but I wanted to keep going to get this over with. My legs ache constantly and my fingers look like I could stick a pin in them and get some relief. The bottom of my feet are discolored and my skin is peeling. I thank God every day for being able to get up and do something even though I am tired most of the time. I will survive but I would rather overcome. Victory is mine.

Happy New Year.

    I like that word Victory!
    I like that word Victory! Just had my first taxol infusion this past Monday and can barely walk. Pain is strong I too need and want that Victory. May God bless you Virginia and all us chemo gals as we fight this fight of hope in spite of the pain.
