After getting all excited last week, and then getting shot down by low white cells, today I finally had #11 FOLFOX! In two weeks, Lord willing, I will have my last one.

Today and the last time three weeks ago, I had an entirely new problem. I got home around 2 pm with my little pump, and I felt awful. Backache, joint pains, and fever up to 102. When I checked with the dr., he said that since I had just had extensive blood work done, he was pretty sure I didn't have an infection. I drank lots of cold liquids (I can drink them now, I just can't hold the container without something around it.) and took one tylenol. Now, 2 hr. later, I feel much better. He said, again, that if I was still feverish in the morning to come in, but last time I was fine.

I'm going to really celebrate in a couple of weeks, but I'll have to wait until the strangeness goes away. Weird.

Great news; hang in there. I finished my chemo on July 9, 2004....it's really the only "anniversary" date from this whole ordeal that has stayed with me. I love that it's so close to the 4th....I'm always sure that some of the fireworks are for my own celebration! Best of luck, Judy
