I noticed this morning that there is a new name on the Roll Call thread.  When I looked at the post, I saw several new names.  I always think of Roll Call as a way to keep track of everyone and here I find new woman introducing themselves and I missed it. 
 
So I want to say welcome to Mommariah and Ruby ShooZ.  Please post again under your own thread using the new message selection.  I see you both have connections to the finger lakes area of NY.  We have another member of this group, Ellen, who lives in upper NY state.  We are from all over the US. Washington state, Texas, Michigan, Ohio, NC, NJ, PA...and many more.  All ages, too.  I am the old lady of the group at 68 going down to the 30's.  Feel free to join right in.
 
Hugs  Mary K.  (MK for short)

I would like to add my welcome, also.  I have been MIA for a while, but saw this post and wanted to say HI and you will get lots of info and support here.  Feel free to ask anything and everything.  We are all here for you.

Okay now I'm wondering where  Millie is.  I sort of looked forward to her posting here too since I feel like the only newcomer here.  C'mon Millie, we need you here.
 
I'm hoping you're doing okay.

Rubyshooz, you are not the only newcomer here.  Anthi has not been here long, nor Rottielover.  These are the names that come to mind immediately.  And remember, we were all "newcomers" at one time.  Many of us came for support and information.  We tend to stay out of the friendships that develop.  Another reason I stay (and I'm sure I'm not the only one!)...I didn't know a soul who had breast cancer when I was dx'ed at 36.  I wish I had had a place like this way back then.  I didn't go to a support group because I thought at the time they would all be "old" and I would have nothing in common with "those women."  Here, I've learned that age really doesn't matter.  I digress, so back to my point:  I post here frequently to try to offer to other "newcomers" what I wish had been available to me when I was dx'ed...someone to tell me what it's like, what to expect, and to offer hope that it does get better.  Life goes on, and while cancer still lurks at the edges of the mind, looms larger at times, with a new ache or pain, then dissipates again with a good test result and a "happy dance," it also makes me appreciate every day above ground alot more than I used to.  So keep coming back.  Before you know it, you'll be a "moldie oldie" like some of the rest of us!  (We even have occasional "gatherings" so we can hug and talk in person!)
 
Hugs...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for noticing my absence. I started my chemo and was frankly unable to sit at my computer. It seems I had some reaction to the Nulasta shot and was doubled up in chest pain for a week. The doctor is going to see about maybe another medication instead. The nausea was bearable with the compazine and if it hadn't been for that darned shot I think it wouldn't have been too bad. This week I got my second infusion but this time it was just the Herceptin which isn't so bad.

It has been 10 days since my first chemo now and I actually feel human again just a little more tired than before. I have to say this is not the most fun I have ever had in my life but it certainly is a learning experience.

Hugs to all,

Millie

Thank you, I am feeling much better. My hair is starting to fall out but that is no big deal and was expected. I went for my weekly Herceptin today and next week I begin cycle 2 of my chemo. I see the oncologist on that day also so will be interesting to see what he has to say. I am hoping he will order something other than the Nulasta this time. My blood counts are dropping so obviously I need something, just hoping to avoid that one again.

I am getting used to the need for napping so just build that into each day. I watch my 3 year old granddaughter (with my daughter's help) every day so we nap together in the afternoons. It works out great.

Will keep you posted on progress.

 

Hugs,

Millie
