I've been very busy getting ready to leave for Chicago. I'll be gone until probably Sunday night or Monday. I did want to post these things before I leave.
In Mamm magazine, if you haven't already seen it, on p. 9, there is a new treatment for bc in the liver. It can give up to five years increased survival.

Also, my friend RoseMary is doing very well on her new hormone treatment, Faslodex. Her other hormone treartments had worked for five years and she was about to go on herceptin and chemotherepy. It is given by shot. The shot is painful so it is sometimes divided into two shots which is what she is doing.
 Talk to you all when I get home. My parents have not entered the computer age. Love and Hugs, Di

Di, glad your friend is doing better, but too bad the shot is painful. And, it is good to know that there are new treatment options out there for those with mets. Have a safe trip to Chicago. We'll see you when you get back. Hugs, Lauri
