Well, here we go again...after an extra week to get my strength back, treatment is on again. I will have Taxotere and Aredia
tomorrow. We have stopped the Xeloda for the time being.
I sure could use a few prayers and some hand holding....I am
kind of nervous...but trying to keep a good attitude. If
I have a similar reaction to only the Taxotere, I doubt I will
continue treatment.
I will keep you all posted...
Love and hugs

stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....

OK, Cath....I'll be there with bells...er, uh, pink feathers on!  I am rooting hard for you, my friend, that this treatment will be easy to tolerate. You absolutely deserve a break, praying this is it.

Lots of prayers and hope for an easy time, my friend. I really wish that it goes easier for you. Hugs and love, Lauri

Sending prayers that your treatment goes as smoothly as possible. I can only imagine how frustrated and tired you are at this point. I'll be holding your hand, friend.

Oh {{{{{CATHI}}}}} I will be there holding your hand, sweetie. I pray that you have an easier time of it this time and it continues that way. Love you dear friend, Gail

Sweet Cathi:
I will be with you in prayer today holding your hand.  (Mine's the cold one).  Making decisions about treatment is always a difficult task, but I truly believe that our hearts and faith brings us to the correct one.  I do pray that the treatments are kind to you and that you come to better health.
Love you friend,

You have my prayers, too! I hope you are able to tolerate the new treatments! You certainly deserve a break right about now.

Cathi: Good luck this afternoon. I truly believe that you will have an easy time w/ treatments and minimal side effects. I will be taking the aredia starting again next month since a new study shows that the side effects from the zometa are causing such horrid problems. Treatments are never fun and I know that there are days that I question why I am continuing these weekly "endurance tests". I hope that you will have nothing but smooth sailing during and after this treatment. You are almost done! I'll be there with you, whispering words of encouragement.

Cathi, it is about time to jump aboard the PCE to come hold your hand. Mine is the hot one. LOL Candy. In my old age I am hotter than a hotcake body temperature wise. I wish I could share some of this warmth with those of you who are cold. I am praying that this treatment will not cause you any further pain and suffering, Cathi. God knows you have had enough of that. I hope our pink presence is felt as you undergo the treatment and afterwards as you rest comfortably. Hugs, prayers and love, MK

Sorry I'm late, Cathi. Just sent up a prayer that this treatment is a little more "user friendly." I'll keep you in my prayers.

I'm a little late too but praying that this time you have smooth sailing.  You deserve it after all you've been through.

Love and hugs,
