      Thank you. That's Murphy. Unfortunately, we had to put him to rest in April. We are heartbroken though we do know it was the best thing to do for him.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I had the last two sessions of chemotherapy in July. My Oncologist reduced the dose of Taxol to decrease side effects and that worked well.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Had my first and second chemotherapy, 5/13 & 5/27, with Taxol. Bone and muscle pain which did not respond to OTC medication. Was prescribed Norco which caused extreme itchiness during the second round of Taxol. Have stopped chemotherapy temporarily so that I can have cracked teeth extracted and take care of itchiness of the skin which persists even after the chemotherapy.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Went for my fourth chemo, last dd-Adriamycin/Cytoxin combo, on Wednesday, 4/29. So far so good. Minimum side effects. Having had an extra week between my second and third chemo seems to have given my body time to heal and recover.
