    Hey there stranger! How are you doing? I have been thinking of you and I hope all is going well for you. I am at my 1 yr mark and looks like all is good , just the same old stuff that Dr Wallace is aware of.

      Good to hear from you!!! So Glad you have made the one year mark!!! I am doing pretty well, two major colds this winter, really knocked me but doing better now! kinda looking forward to a warm up, the MICHELIN WOMAN LOOK IS NOT FOR ME! I have gained so much weight since treatment... it is stuck like glue! I completed a Livestrong program at the Y here in Valpo. It really did wonders for me as did the lung rehab at St. Mary's. unfortunately the colds have taken me back a few steps .
      I will be at the Office tomorrow to get the port flush. Nice to be well going there! Blessings that we both keep clear and continue to find a new normal! Thanks for contacting me... I do think of you each time I have Ginger tea.......I just could not remember the screen name,gotta love chemo brain! Suzette :)

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I started chemo on Nov 14th , at first the side effects where minimal the second cycle however was much rougher on me and did end up in the hospital twice for dehydration. I should finish by 1-31-13.

    I hope you had a wonderful New Year and Christmas. I was back in the hospital and was released Christmas Eve late but still Christmas Eve. We were able to exchange ours gifts on Saturday. The best gift I got was when my daughter gave me bracelets from Cozumel. she gave me 12 so I could wear on one wrist how may cycles I had completed and on my left how many I have to go, butt her question to me was "why 12 you only have 4 cycles not six? " I was was excited cause I was always told 6. on my next visit to the infusion center they confirmed 6 cycles and I felt all the air sucked out of me. I seen Dr Wallace on the 2nd of Jan and he said there are only 4. he said people with 4 did as well as people with 6.....he checked the papers and there was an error so he had all my paperwork changed to reflect 4....I am so happy. the extra bracelets are being given to all my close females ie... daughters granddaughter and my sons girlfriend who lost her mom to cancer 2 yrs ago.
