Dear Friends

Thank you for thinking about me.  News about Linda and Claudia moving to the hospice care havemade me very sad and heartbroken. I hope and pray there are feeling comfortable and free of pain

Physically I am feeling better. I returned to my full-time  job and can drive again.!!! If you remember I have been participating in clinical trails and was getting a combination of Faslodex and experimental drug BKM 120. Initially I got shingles, then everything was going ok, however I felt that the combo was very hard to handle. After 3 months on the trial I was temporary took off the drug BKM 120 due to multiple side effects, including liver function and other blood parameters below acceptable range. My AST was 146, ALT 301. Plus I got Chemo brain.  It was awful, took several infusions of fluids , zofran, pepsin, ect. My recovery was slow, and by the time I was going to resume the drug at lower dose  the study sponsor (pharmaceutical company) decided to take me  off BKM120/placebo indefinitely because I have been off so long due to toxicity. Honestly, I am having a nixed feelings about sponsor's decision. while it was toxic at high dose, we belived it was in part efficaciuos against cancer. Here I am, continuing Faslodex treatment and hopping for the best. My CT scan is scheduled for tomorrow 7/22 at 10:40, my visit to oncologist is on 7/25.

I will let you know what is next for me.
