    Hi Deann, best of luck to you throughout your cancer treatment. I'm a 2x b/c survivor and was treated both in 2003 and 2012. I've had lumpectomy, radiation, tamoxifen, double mastectomy (21 days after second diagnosis) and my chemo was TCH, so I can let you know what my experiences were, if you want to know. I only got the "carbocraptin" (my name for it) every three weeks, which was good, becuz it made me pretty sick--felt like a BAD case of flu. I think each of us reacts to chemo and cancer treatment in general in our individual way. But two things helped me--packing a chemo bag and leaving it ready to go in the entry closet. In it, I would have my Shuffle, blanket, crackers, crosswords, Kindle,etc. Anything and everything I might want at chemo. It was always ready to go with me to chemo, which was one step to making it easier. The other thing is more personal. I am an Atheist, so religion does not comfort me. Instead, I think we all have more energy and capabilities than we come close to using--so I forced myself to adopt a positive attitude...not nexus I thought it would miraculously cure me, but because it was better for me during my recovery. And it helped a lot! Wear a funny hat over your bald head, get some crazy socks that make you smile, etc. Your treatment isn't easy, but millions of us have done it before you and you can follow us. There WILL be better days ahead for you! Good luck. Ydnar

      Thanks so much for sharing. I definitely have my chemo bag packed and ready to go. Won’t know how my body responds until I actually start, but as my little cousin says, “let’s get this party started!” LOL

      Thank you. It was my first attempt at a new method of quilting...I think I'll do better next time. But gotta love that PINK!
