      It's so good to hear the word, *benign,* isn't it? YAY!! We will take that good news and hope for more from you, Andreacha. It sounds like you have some stuff to go through, but it also sounds like your doctors are very sensitive to your needs.I could kiss your niece for helping you.(!)

      I had Taxol once a week for 11 weeks. At first it was easy, but I did get a light rash and some lower GI issues (mostly because I have some darn ole hemorrhoids). Then some neuropathy in my feet, so that is why I did not have the last dose. Everyone is different, though, my neighbor had the exact same treatment and she had a much easier time with the neuropathy and no rash at all.

      Like Carool says, keep us posted, we are interested in how you are doing.

      Glad to see good news about your lymph nodes. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I am glad your niece is able to come and help you out. I am sure that is a relief that you have someone knowledgeable and reliable. Where do you go for treatments? I see you say your providers are about an hour away. Remember, I am from North Georgia. That's why I asked where you go.

      In any event, we would love to see you check in frequently but we all definitely understand if you need to rest, relax and just take care of you.

      Andreacha, that is great news about your lymph nodes. To sign-up for the WhatNext Digest, go to the WhatNext home page and click on MY Account on the left under your picture. There are choices to click on for how you want to receive communications from What Next. The digest has been the only way that I have ever seen what is happening. I guess maybe I should click on the tabs at the top every now and then. LOL. Keep us posted on how you make out with the chemo and radiation. I am sending you prayers and good thoughts. Take care.
