So nice to get an update, and that the chemo is almost done. Nausea/vom is one of the worst things, at least you can treat pain pretty good. Are you having to wear a wig/bandana? When I was getting my remicade RX's I met several women there for breast cancer chemo, and at one visit the staff were even passing out hand made kerchiefs to them made by volunteers. Happy NEW year to you.
