Hello again my friends. Thank you for your responses and your warm welcome back! To fill you in a bit on my saga, Tom and I have been wanting to move back to the northeast for quite awhile, so when he got a reasonably good job opportunity, we decided it was "now or never!" Not that we didn't love NC, but we wanted to be closer to family. So we are now only 1 1/2 hours from my sister and brother in NJ and an hour from my other brother who lives north of Philly. We are excited to be able to spend more time with our four young nieces and nephews as well as our goddaughters in MD and in Toronto and some close friends in the area. We are very excited about our move; however for me finding a job has been more difficult than I anticipated. I am thinking I want to make a career shift and have been exploring jobs with, among other non-profits, the American Cancer Society. Hopefully something good will come along soon! Meanwhile, I spend the week in NC and the weekend in PA, and we still have LOTS of unpacking to do.... We had just finished foster care training in NC and are hoping it will transfer here, as we would still like to foster with the goal of adopting...
Glenda, I do still have my old email but it will change soon, so if you send me your new email I will send you mine too! I unfortunately have not heard from Patti S. or Barbara in a long time, and I missed the Komen Race this year because I was traveling. Thanks also for the heads up on Femara. I have been on it about 4 months I guess. They did a bone density at the beginning and I assume I will have another one in a year. I had been thinking about doing the oophrectomy so I would not have to do the Zoladex anymore and could still take the Femara, but now maybe I'll wait a bit...Sheesh - - too many decisions to make!
Joyce, we live on the west side of Philly in Drexel Hill. Nice thing is, I can pretty easily get anywhere from here. The trolley stop is just a block away and from there I can easily get the subway to UPenn or anywhere else in the area if I need to. I know from a visit there that parking is a pain -- and pricey! But I am willing to go pretty far for a good doc - I used to drive an hour to Duke. So any and all advice is welcome, whenever you get a chance. I hope your relative in Fla. is okay!
Thanks again for your help and support!
