Hi Ladies.  Just posting quickly to let you know that I am on week 3 of weekly taxol.  So far, so good.  Side effects have been minimal.  Have ordered my wig.  Received a box from Heavenly Hats.  If you know of anyone going through chemo, just make a request at heavenly hats and they will send out a box of hats.  While at the dr. I asked him to check me because Ifelt like the collar bone area was not as swollen.  I thought it was just wishful thinking. Doc. confirmed that the node had shrunk by 60%.  I was very happy this weekend.  Next is a bone scan to make sure nothing in bones and then we will scan the end of the summer.  yeah

I have never heard of the box full of hats. It sounds like a great idea. Tell us more about the hats and where they come from. I have seen patterns for hats to knit for cancer patients and wondered what people do with them. Is this the kind of hat you are getting? I am so happy to hear about the shrinkage, too. That is wonderful news. Have a wonderful day. Here the sun is shining and it looks bright and beautiful. Hope it is there, too. Hugs MK

The heavenly hats were awesome. It was started by a young boy who wanted to do some good. Someone asked that I receive a hat when we found out I would lose my hair again. We requested a bucket hat. The box came with 6, some terrycloth, some lightweight, all colors. ALl the hats are new and donated. You can be a Hat Angel and donate to them. Here is the website:


hope i did that right.

Tried to fix website to click on. I couldn't get it by copying even the ANTHONY part didn't work, I googled.  LOL  MK
