    I have been away from here for awhile :( I get my sixth Doxil treatment on Friday. This drug it kicking my butt!!! I am tired all the time and really don't like doing anything. This time of year is so busy and with three kids I have much to do! Also my four year old nephew needs his booster shots and I have to stay away from him for a whole month. He is so sad about that and doesn't why. Not a good week for me.

      I to was nervous when I went back to work the first time. I was gone for 9 months. I thought I forgot alot but I didn't and once I was there a couple of days I fell right back into my routine at work. You will do great I know you will :) congratulations on everything

      That's like a vacation isn't it? After I didn't have to go to radiation everyday I was sort of lost. My routine had been made and I was used to it, then I didn't have to go, it seemed like I had half a day left over. Happy your done!

    Very moody today:( Just don't feel like putting that smile on my face so everyone thinks all is ok. Maybe it is a good day to just stay in and watch movies all day?

      sometimes you just have down days, nothing wrong with it, just try not to let one down day turn into 2 then 3 and so on. It's important to keep your mind in the right place to help you get through it.
      Post what you feel here, and ask what you want, others will be glad to talk.

      That's great. I got mine all in a small 12 oz or so bag, sometimes it would burn if pushed too fast. I think only once I got the large bag. Always wondered why they gave it to me like that, and most others got the big bag. I never asked.

      I'm happy for you too, bad stuff, but it's good stuff too for what it does for us.

      Wish the best for you, keep us posted on your progress.

      That is Great Chemobrain, I had that burning going on too when I would get mine, usually they would slow down the drip and it would fix it.

      glad your able to move on with it.
      thanks for the update.
