Race For The Cure

Ash is taking part in the Susan G. Koman race for the cure this Sunday in downtown Phoenix.  Thanks for the support Ash, and hopefully next year I will have the strength to join in.  Can't say I like the number though, it adds up to 13!

Did I say, "I'm done'?

Well, maybe I should re-phrase that.  I may be finished with the actual procedures, but I guess when you have a cancer history, you are never "done" with Doctors!!  I had my follow-up appointment with my medical oncologist today and we charted a path for the future.  I am to be seen every 3 months in her office for 2 years, then every 6 months for 3 years. I was put on Aramidex,(an estrogen blocking drug) for 5 years, given a shot of Lupron that stays in your system for 3 months.  I wish that I had researched this drug before agreeing to it.  I am not happy with the side effects it can cause, and knowing me, I get all of them. lol  I'll keep you posted as to whether or not I CHOOSE to receive another one. I have a pet scan scheduled for Dec 27th which will hopefully confirm the absence of cancer.  Dr. Meng suggested a liter a day of water, and begin yoga as a form of exercise.  I understand that yoga helps the mind and body, all I can say is, "its gonna take a lot of yoga!!!!  Bye for now, I feel a hot flash coming on, lol
