Hi Ladies,
This past week was a very difficult one....but I am finally feeling better. I am totally exhausted, but better. Spending 6 days in the hospital wasnt the greatest, but I needed to be there.
I want to thank you all for the prayers and good wishes...!!
by the way, there were pink feathers everywhere...LOL
You ladies are the greatest ... I love you all...
I will write more later, right now I am going to take a nap.
Love and hugs,
Sometimes it is a slender thread, Sometimes a strong,
stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....

We had the other end of that rope for sure. What a wonderful surprise to come home and see your post! I hope and pray that each day will see you feeling better. What an awful time you have had. I didn't know that Xeloda could be that terrible. I'm praying that the taxotere will work and you can go into remission, feel good and enjoy your life. I know we are praying hard. Lots of love to you. Love and Hugs always, Di

Sweet Cathi:

Woo Hoo!!! I am so glad you are home.  There is no place like home.  Take all the naps you can.  Hugs to you,  Candy

So glad to hear you are home.  Even if you don't feel great, I know it feels good to be home.  Take all the naps you need, your body is run down from all the crap it has had to endure lately.  One step at a time back to good health and reimission.

Love ya and will call this week.

You just rest up, friend. You've been through the wringer...

Dearest Cathi, So glad you're home. Prayers that the tax. will do its job, and you'll be back feeling much better. Naps will help you regain your strength.

Love you, Glenda

 Hi Cathi I know how you feel to a certain degree. Those are my 2 chemo's (xeloda and taxatere). They can be very unfriendly like so many of them. Yet we do what  we have to do. Take care have enjoyed learning about your strenght to endure.

Yay! I saw you were home and was so happy to hear it, but I was running here and there with Stella. She goes back home on Thursday so I will be back with it full time then. You rest, take care of yourself and BEHAVE. Hugs MK

I'm soooo glad you're home, hun.  I was pretty worried.  Hopefully, this will be an easier summer for you.
