Just wanted to say hi and update a bit. I'm doing pretty darn well, I think. The methotrexate seems to be helping my vision a lot and DH and I are sure enjoying time together and with the kiddos. Didn't get my taxotere last week as my white count was too low, so they added  leukovorin and hope/ plan  it will be ok tomorrow to get both chemos. Angela is taking me and I'm looking forward to spending time with her :-)  It may be a long day--lab, MD then 2 1/2 hr treatment. My appetite is good.  I'm getting out most everyday--going to church or Target or grocery or lunch. Not driving--I'm not that crazy. Lucky enough to have friends to take me places. Let's see ...enjoying doing homework with kids, beautiful sunny fall days and beautiful rainy thundery days too.  Back pain  is very manageable.  Trying to take a rest every afternoon. DH is working on long neglected projects around the house like cleaning out the storage room, but is happy to help if I need something.
Just wanted to say hi and I think of you all everyday, appreciate your cards and thoughts and send special hugs to all who need them.
Love,
Mightybeck

Thanks for the update, sounds like life is pretty normal there...which is a GOOD thing! Enjoy those days, our beautiful super deluxe sunny days have quickly turned gray and cold, way too quickly.

The glory of Fall and its beauty is my favorite time of year.

Hope you keep feeling so great, inside and out!
L&H,

Becky

You sound wonderful in your post.  Enjoy the days with your children and getting your husband to do things around the house.  How did you manage that?  My Tony is still in that state where the garbarge cans in the house empty themselves.  LOL  Take care.

Becky,
Glad I found this post. I've not been too good at keeping up lately. You have such a happy spirit. I'm glad you're having fun. I'm dealing with low counts lately too and know it's not much fun. Hang in there girlfriend!! Love, Janice

So strange that this post showed up again today. As I was getting the card ready to send to Luci for Elizabeth Edwards, I was thinking we had not heard from Becky in awhile and so I addressed a card to her, too. When I came and saw her post, I thought it was from this morning and thought ESP was working over time. Guess not, but it is always good to read her cheerful posts. What a special person. Hugs. MK
