First off...Thanks to all who sent Birthday wishes..they were appreciated. Thank you Joyce for the card, warm slippers and the book,but especially your friendship and thoughtfulness.
Well, I am presently in the middle of radiation to my ribs. I have been in extreme pain ...spine, ribs and pelvis. They are starting with the spine hoping it will relieve some of that pain. They will possibly do the spine and do the pelvic area. They found alot of new tumors in that area on the bone scan from several weeks ago.They found 2 small tumors on my lungs on the CT scan and also the cancer has spread to the lymphs on my other breast. My tumor markers are up to 395....
I will be starting chemo again on December 28th..the chemo is Doxil..it is in the Adriamyicin family. I will first have a Muga Scan & MRI of the spine on December 18th. The Muga is because the Doxil may cause damage to my heart.
I have been depressed about all this...I am getting tired of doing this again and again. But, for my Birthday my daughter Rachel got me the sweetest kitten. Her adoption name is Autumn, but I call her Auti...she is 12 weeks old and very naughty I love her alot and she is so much company.
I am on disability now..It got too hard to work with the pain..I hated going on disablity, but it was time. I applied for SSD and it was approved in 5 weeks, from what I understand that is pretty fast.
Well, that is the news ....please keep me in your prayers.
Love and hugs
Sometimes it is a slender thread, Sometimes a strong,
stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....
