Sorry I have been so quiet these past few months...I have really been laying low
this summer. I have a hard time dealing with the heat..and boy has it been hot here
in Cleveland...and the humidity ..YUCK.
Well, I stopped my chemo in mid june per my Oncs advice. I was spending to much
time in the hospital with side effects. So I have been taking a rest which has been
wonderful. I have been seeing my onc ever 3 weeks and will see her again on 9/8
and she will order all new tests and scans and we will re-evaluate on what to do.
I know she is thinking of trying a different chemo..but I will think long and hard about
that. My pain level is bad so they increased the oxycontin again. I take oxcodone
in between but I dont do that often because it makes me feel really goofy.
I am still working full time. I do think about going on disability but havent done
anything about it. Since I am stage 4 it isnt very difficult from what I understand.
Oh well, I will keep that in mind for later on.
There are so many new names here...I am sorry I didnt welecome you earlier.
I am glad you found our board, but sorry you have to be here. This is a
great place with so many caring woman.
Also, my ,laptop died and I have to get a new one....so I can only keep
in touch through work right now.
Please know I love and care about
all of you !
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....
