Well, just a quick update. A few things have changed. The powers that be decided that they didn't need to do the bone biopsy. HURRAH!! ( I don't know how to spell that). Instead they are just going to start chemotherapy, and then I suppose re-scan me to see what if anything has changed. Because I had lymph nodes removed from both sides I am never, for the rest of my life, supposed to have IV's, blood draws, blood pressures, or injections of any kind in my arms. So they have to put in a port to take care of all of these issues. I thought that was going to happen today, but it didn't. At this point I am scheduled to have the port put it next week (which they informed me today is a surgery with general anesthesia) and then start chemo. So, next week will be an interesting week. Each week continues to get better, although I can't believe how slow it is. I still need my nap each day, but I can generally get by with only one per day. The pain level is going down, except for these little boob fills. This week I decided that I would only get half of what I got last week, and it is still very sore. I am not going to get a fill next week. With chemo and a minor surgery, I think that is enough for one week. So. . . that about catches everything up. As always, thank you to everyone who continues to support me. I really do appreciate all of the cards, telephone calls, rides to the doctor, and kind words. They mean a lot.
