    Today I went to talk with the infusion RN and to get the low-down on Chemo Tx. I start on Cisplatin/Germzar on Jan. 7th. for four rounds of three weeks on and one off. This is adjunct to pnumonectomy and being diagnosed as Stage IIB Lung Cancer.. I do not look forward to the process but appreciate that this is one more step in the fight. I am taking a break from cancer and returning to work on Monday and celebrating the holidays, then on to the next phase.

    Gail,

    Thank-you for the encouragement and advice on making chemo doable. I will see the infusion nurse tomorrow and set the course of tx at that time. I will also know what to tell work (somewhat).I have unbelievable support at home and at work and am truly blessed. I was always healthy and this was such an oh no event. Like surgery which I did very well with the removal of the left lung five weeks ago today - I will tackle chemo, but have learned to listen to my body as well. Thanks again and I will update as we go.

    Hugs, Janet

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Routine Chest X-ray is not so routine. Mass in Left Lung.
