First of all, Jackie, HI! I was just thinking about
posting one of my Jackie are you out there notes.
It is sooo good to hear from you and fantastic that you are posting good results. Hugs, from here!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I am truly thankful to the Lord for my 8 years. I was diagnosed in June of 1997. I thought living five years at that time would be good, but now I can't believe eight have gone by.
Well, we all have a lot in common. I am ER- and Her2 postitive. 3+ on one test and 4+ on the other. We have been unable to benefit from so many new things and the Herceptin hurt my heart and I was pulled off of that after only 5 times. At my last heart test, they said it was normal with the medicine. So I wonder what he would say if a doctor ever called him about my going back on it. Let's hope the new ones aren't so toxic. My good friend here is about at the end of hormone treatments and will go on herceptin next. I always share our information with her. She is so great. She used to be a regional superintendent and even when she was sick she was trying to help me with my disability.
Yes, Deb please ask your onc. I asked mine about the vaccine trial coming to STL and she said I would be first if I have the correct protein. It will probably be available in a year. I can't believe how soon these new ones are coming out. How wonderful. Thanks Jackie.
Love to all, Di
