Here's hoping you are okay.  Don't make me get HowieSteve to come get you.  I spoke to Paula and they are stocked up on batteries for his new device.  For the rest of you, my brother in law has horrible back pains.  He has this device attached to him that to my knowledge sounds like a "tens" unit.  Sends impulses to the nerves.  I had one on my leg for a while.  If all goes well he will have it implanted into his back. 
And I hope your Steve is doing okay.  Plus the first thing our of HowieSteve's mouth to me on our Thanksgiving dinner day was ... " that web site that you got to ... you need to check in."  I love him so much. 
We have raced "for the Cure"
Worn Lee's Jeans on Friday "for the Cure"
Bought New Balance tennis shoes "for the cure"
Worn pink ribbon pins "for the cure"
Collected donations "for the cure"
Ate pink M&M's "for the cure"
Drank Sutter Home wine "for the cure"
Spent an extra $.08 on a stamp "for the cure"
Ate Lean Cuisine frozen dinners "for the cure"
We have all done our part "for the cure"
now you do yours and get us that cure.

I am still here.  Since I went back to work, I don't get online much at home, exept on my days off.  Those happen to be Tues/Wed. so I can get my chemo.  Had my 3rd session yesterday and the nausea seems to be better, so far.  I was tired when I woke up yesterday, so after the session, I was REALLY tired.  Came home and napped.  Then after dinner, went to bed early and couldn't sleep.  Woke up every hour.  My doctor says I'm doing and looking great.  Lots of people were sick and not having their chemo.  I wondered why I was only the 2nd person there.  Usually it's full.  So, I guess I'm doing fine.  I try to stay away from sick people at work.
Steve is doing fine.  His x-rays show he's healing well.  He started his new job last week and likes it much better.  The drive is a lot better, too.  We have nicknamed him Gimpy.  LOL 
I'm having some teeth problems and the onc said he would like me to hold off on any major work.  I need to get in to at least have an exam.  It's been years.  This is a new dentist under my new plan, too.  We will see.  Last night I didn't have the pain.  Hopefully it will stay that way.
L & H,

Kathy Glad to hear you are doing well with your chemo. That is great news. And I am also glad that Gimpy is doing well, too. Sounds like he has some fun co workers as well as a better drive and job. Take care of yourself and don't overdo it even if you feel well. Tiredness seems to be a really bad side effect of chemo. Hugs MK
