    Oh No

    I was completely devestated. I am a retired nurse and I have taken care of patients with extensive head and neck surgeries and could visualize myself in that position. I was completely horrified, devestated, shocked and ready for a vodka double header (even though I don't believe in drinking- I didn't really have a drink but I see how people do.)

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I haven't had chemo yet but will be going into hospital in two weeks to start an intensive type of chemo - three days in the hospital per week and then rest periods I will not know the schedule until I see the M.D. Thursday Dec. 18.
