DJ - So happy to hear that you are feeling better and I'm sure those nasty cells will run for their lives!!

P.S.  I had dry cough caused by my blood pressure meds (Lisinopril)...changed meds, cough gone.  May be totally different for you, but thought I would mention it.

Hug

DJ - That's fantastic news!  Hopefully, those cancer cells will all run for the hills now that big and mighty Taxol is in town!  Sounds like your treatment center is a comforting place.  Mine didn't offer anything but a basket full of snacks (raisins, crackers, trail mix, fruit).  My husband, though, bought all of the nurses ice cream on my last chemo day (we actually had a contest to see which nurse could get the line in since I didn't have a port and my veins were DONE).

Hope this goes as smoothly as is possible for you.  Thanks for the update.

Top o' the mornin' to ya!

This really does feel like a reunion, I am up very early today.... just like the bad old days! 
I didn't even consider the SGK Message Board when I had the mastectomy. It was "just" a simple procedure, I would have reconstruction and that would be the end of it. But that wasn't the end of it because as many of you know, lightening does strike twice.

I found you when I needed you most and some of you found me. Finding each other has truly been a blessing.

I love each and every one of you because you are.

This is Maya and me, I love her too!

DJ - my heart goes out to you.  I know what it's like when your dad goes, and I can only imagine having to deal with it with all your have on your plate.  It's times such as this when we really depend on each other here and please know, if we don't, or can't, post as often as we would like that you are always in my thoughts and prayers.  That is such good news from your doctor...good luck with the treatments!!!

Good day all! I just caught up to quite a few pages of newsy news on yas and am so glad to see so many doing well. DJ, I too am sorry to hear about your dad passing. Since I couldn't log on to my old account I had to start a new one but I did come to Komen the night I was diagnosed -full of questions and concerns and dear Sue M. and others were right there to assure me I wasn't alone. Bless you all, Gail
