I also wish that the pinks sisters that are fighting the beast again would post some news for us.

I really don't have much to report. Last Friday I had my third round of Abraxane and Herceptin. First, I saw my onc because he wanted to see how the side effects were from this combination. At this point (and in comparison to Xeloda and Tykerb), this is a breeze (knock on wood!). I feel good but do get a little tired each Sunday. Unless something unforeseen happens, I'll continue this combo for 2 - 3 more months and then have another scan...so for now, it's stay the course and wait and see.

Looks like I might lose my hair again because I have sore spots on my scalp. Through all the different chemos I've had, I only lost it in the very beginning while on Taxol and Herceptin. None of the others caused this even though they were "likely" to. It's not that I want to lose it, but I'm well aware that there are many things so much more important. I must say after 73 weeks of chemo, that would have been a very long time to be without hair!

Thanks for checking on all of us again. I hope the others are all feeling as well as I am right now. Please join me with continued hopes and prayers that our current treatment plans are effective in fighting the tumors.

OFF TOPIC - I hope this finds everyone safe from the weather events that continue to batter our country!

My best to all, Marsha

Hugs, Megan

As usual Marsha, you always have kind words and thoughts for everyone else. You truly amaze me! I am so happy to see you posting, as, I also get worried about you.

I will continue to pray that your treatment plan will be effective and rid you of the beast.

You take care and remember how loved and admired you are by all of us.

If I could do one of those "happy dances" that women do on these forums, I would.

So very please that this new combo is being kinder to you. Hair lost in the scheme of things of what you been through is no doubt tolerable.

Best wishes in this continuing to be endurable and helping,

Doris

I haven't been on til now. Chemo is really hard this time. Now I'm due for another one on Monday, just when I'm starting to feel a little better. I have to have 6 months to a year of it, 3 times a month. Its rough. I don't have an appetite this time around and have lost almost 30 lbs in 2 months. My husband and sister help me out alot. Husband is very depressed about the recurrance. Our anniversary is today and I know he's wondering if it will be the last. I worry about my girls, 19 and 21. Money issues are not good either. He's on sick leave getting only half pay for the next 4 months or more, and his job may be moving after that. I also wonder about the other girls and how they are doing. I hope things will get better soon. And a money tree would be fantastic. Thanks for thinking of me.

Hello Angie and all my other fellow "Kindred Spirits". Checking in and giving my update as well. It's been a tough week...Tue. my counts were VERY low, with my platelets coming in at 2, yep only 2, WBC was 1.0, HGB was 8, along with everything else running dangerously low. So Wednesday I received a platelet transfusion, Thursday I received 2 units of blood (was hoping it would be super-hero blood so I could fly out of there). Yesterday my HGB was up, my WBC was up and platelets made it up to 43, still very low but way better than 2. Today I'm doing ok, feeling better for sure, like I got my oil changed, lol. Hope this finds everyone else doing well and as always, you're all in my prayers every day.
Miles of Love,
Kari

Thank you for your updates. I am glad to see you posting, however very sorry for rough rides, low blood counts, transfusions, all Chemo side effects.
My son as many college students always gives blood, hopefully you will get energy and young , "can do everything" spirit from transfused blood.
Please know you are always thinking and praying for your effective treatment and easy side effects.
Hugs

Thanks for thinking of us. I'm having alot of stomach trouble, nausea, vomiting. I had a gallbladder ultrasound this morning. I may have stones causing the problems. I hope thats all it is. I'm so hungry and can't eat and keep it down. So, I drink alot of juice. Doctor says the cancer is on the run, though. I've been in bed mostly. Its been rough lately, but trying to stay positive. I hope to check in more often when I'm feeling better. I'll keep you posted about my gallbladder. Another chemo tomorrow. I've been getting blood transfusions with each one, it drops my blood so low. Bye for now.

Happy to see your post Laurissa. I was thinking of you and Kari last night, and praying for both of you. I want you sisters to recover, and to feel better soon. Hang in there, and please know we are all thinking of you and we have you in our prayers.

Please rest. If you can get to a computer to let us know how you are, great. We'll be so happy to hear from you. But we understanding that you also need rest. We're just a bunch of worriers, what can I say?

Now we just need to make sure Kari is doing OK. I saw Marsha post recently.

Sending you hugs and positive energy.
