Just stopping in to say hi and letting you know that I have decided to move away from WebMD. I have been here for many years, more in the Diabetic than the Breast Cancer board. I've seen so many changes, not usually for the better, and so I've decided to move on.
And I post regularly on www.breastcancer.org where there are thousands of participants and awesome moderators. My ID there is LuvRVing if you try to find me.
I am struggling with an aggressive chemo treatment but maybe it's finally one that works. It has knocked my blood counts very low so I am very anemic. But I continue the battle and try to live my life as best I can.
I wanted to let you know that my tumor markers have dropped from 1800 to 500 and my PET scan yesterday showed that almost all my mets have disappeared. There is one pesky liver met, but I am hopeful that my miracle drug - Gemzar - will knock that one out soon.
Thanks everyone! We went to San Juan and stayed in an oceanfront hotel on the beach. We had a great view of the water but it was very windy so we spent most of the time by the pool. Besides, that was closer to the swim-up bar.
There is a wonderful discussion board for us breast cancer gals - BreastCancer.org. More than 110,000 people have participated or are active members. The Moderators are responsive and caring. And there are thousands of topics, all related to breast cancer. And the place runs mostly on donations. Go take a look. Maybe someone will start a discussion titled "Refugees from that other site" so we can all meet up and continue to support one another.
I've been on the diabetic board and this breast cancer board for a long time and I'm pretty much fed up with this site.
Oh my!!! That was quite a ride!!! It's a good thing I have a strong heart
OK ladies, now he's all yours for two weeks - I'll be strolling the sands of West Palm Beach and maybe Marco Island for the next 10 days. If I find a cabana boy worthy of Pinkie, I'll take a picture for you!
I've been having an extremely rough time with nausea this week, so the doc added almost all the anti-nausea meds I took while on DD AC/T. Hopefully, this will solve the problem because this past week was a puke-fest. I'm feeling better already and I just hope that it lasts; otherwise, I'm going to ruin the fun for hubby and our friends in Florida. Wish me luck!!!
