    Hi, dianeruth, I'm glad you found us. I had the same diagnoses and completed my treatment Dec. 2018. I have been doing fine and I bet you will too. I have found this group to be very upfront and generous about sharing experiences and cheering each other on. It's a great site for collecting answers and receiving insight from those of us who have been in the trenches. ;-)

      Thank you MarcieB! I had breast cancer 21 years ago and thought it wouldn't return. Well, it did, and this time in my liver. Already started Leprozole last week and will start IV chemo tomorrow. I'm positive but guarded about the outcome. I was 45 with the first diagnosis and now I'm 66. I learned so much the first journey and know this one will be difficult but rewarding as well. I do have a wonderful husband and grown children and 10 grands, so my family is a huge support group. Thanks for your comments!

      Wow, it seems you have already been *in the trenches!* I have learned a lot through my cancer journey too and also found some insights to be rewarding. We are all doing the best we can, and it sounds like your doctors have you on a good plan of action. And there is a lot to be said for grandchildren (I have 7) they can keep you focused! Let us know how you are doing as you go along.
