Hi all,
Thank you for all of the prayers. My Sunday school class was praying too, and it was a good thing. We had four incidences of bad drivers cutting us off. I hate to have to have Steve drive me down there but he insists. I can see this doctor, but whenever chemo is needed or has been needed, I have it closer to home I can't ask him to drive me there all of the time.
My mammagram was still good enough that I did not need to have a sonagram. My doctor here is taking me off of Fosamax because it is causing severe heartburn, even as I am taking it. Dr. Aft  wants me on Zonata, by infusion, once evey six months. She said it has some protection from bone mets because of the clodronate or alondronate, whichever it has I can't remember. She also changed my cognitive impairment from mild to moderte on my disability papers and made the disability permanent instead of temporary. I will still worry until I hear though. Probably, January. She also said that the reason I was in so much pain where I had the radiation last spring was that I probably broke a rib coughing. I had never thought of that. I quit Curves at the time. I was afraid of getting the infection back if I tore anything. I will go back to Curves a few days a week and maybe just go around a few times. She also wants me to start physical therapy. I don't know anything about that yet I have nothing to complain about that's for sure.
Good nite to you all and thank you. Hugs, Di

Oh, poor baby.  I'm so sorry you have to deal with all of this.  Hope you are encouraged about the new medicine.  You're in my prayers.  I also am glad for the b9 explanation for that pain.  Hope you broke it laughing!!!!!
Curves?????  Oh, you are better than I.  If I can't drive, I'm not interested in it.  I have to admit, even the walks for life really stretch it for me.  It's about the only exception, and I'd only do it for a gathering.  You really don't catch me looking for exercize.  More power to ya!
Prayers, as always!

Hey Ellen, I ordered some tap shoes and a teach yourself tap tape. Maybe that would be fun for you. We can practice together at the gatherings. I took lessons several times in life but was mostly ballet. I thought it would be fun and good exercise and not stress my chest. Also, when I get to Heaven I hope **** and I can dance.
Hope you are OK, Hugs, Di

Di, so glad to hear the mammo was fine. That is always good news! It was great talking to you the other day! And I will still send you the CD, I was just planning on adding Oh Holy Night on it so we can play together! Love you dear friend, Gail
