Almost 20 Days and Evidently Counting...

I've been reminded that I am being remiss on the whole Posting To The Blog issue.  It's been 19 days since the last post.

Sorry about that!

Part of the problem is that I don't have a lot to report.  But for what it's worth, here it is:

This is Week 3 of the Abraxane.  Some stuff is worse than the Adriamycin/Cytoxan combo - spectacular bloody noses, joint and bone pain, neuropathy ('pins & needles' in hands, feet, and back) that sort of thing.  But some stuff is better - less fever, less nausea, less deep hopeless depression.

All things being equal, I prefer the Abraxane to the A/C.  That depression really was not a Good Thing.

It will be several more weeks before I can find out whether it's actually doing anything to slow down the tumors.  Cross your fingers for me, please, I can use all the luck I can get.

Now I have an entire week sans poisoning to look forward to, which is nice.  This is called a 'chemo vacation'.  Which sounds like it should be something really exciting, doesn't it?

"I get to go on a Chemo Vacation, I'm going to really Get Down And Par-tay!!  Somebody pass me the IV bag and a pen, I'm going to Shotgun it!!!"

Lol..nothing like a break from poison to make you want to go out and have a fun party somewhere. Makes you long for the days when you actually went somewhere.
