And in June 2013 we are back in the revolving door of doctors, this time for my heart. So the focus has shifted, BUT... I continue to THANK YOU for your prayers, love & support. I receive them with open & loving arms. My wish is that I will gain strength from you, will provide strength to others & will help to strip away the fears we each experience.
LIVESTRONG: I am strong. I am loved. I am healthy. WE WILL WIN!
Have you or your loved one had their annual mammogram? PLEASE, don't put it off. Speaking from experience, I highly recommend monthly self exam as well.

PLEASE ~ Feel free to share this blog with anyone who is interested to learn about my journey. While I welcome their support, I hope that by sharing this experience freely to the universe I may help to support others by breaking down some of the barriers and fear associated with breast cancer and the treatment.

Bone pain gone -- check!
Rash resolved -- check!
A bit of a head cold going on but it seems to be on the mend and I'm feeling pretty good -- check!
Breakfast out with sweetie on his birthday -- check!
A visit to Pier One and REI -- check!
Home to relax and then a margherita before chores -- check!
So, on to a nice weekend, a birthday dinner for Mark with the girls tomorrow, feeling normal for a few more days. And.... then it is chemo 6. Yahoo. Can't believe that then there will only be two more to go.
Doctor Anderson is hopeful that all the bone pain this last time may not be as significant with Taxol 2, 3 and 4 series. We do need to watch for tingling and numbness of feet and hands, though, with the Taxol, as it can be permanent of not watched carefully. So for the moment, I will be waiting for a call from Dr. Elboim, my surgeon, so we can do a new review of the situation and start planning for surgery right after chemo. Depending on what Dr. Elboim recommends, a breast MRI may be next in line. So other than feeling like crap all day yesterday and this morning with this head cold, but now feeling like it is getting better. And then with the good news from the Doc and spending the day with my sweetie; LIFE IS GOOD!
Happy Friday one and all. Enjoy!
Hugs, Debbie... aka the cancer warrior; AND survivor
