because I was comfortable with the routine and knew what side effects
I was having and what to expect.
Now we're switching to a drug that many have a reaction to.
I am starting weekly infusions of Taxol.
It slows or stops the growth of cancer cells in your body.
Prior to treatment I have to take Benadryl, Tagamet, and Decadron. .
So, after the bloodwork lab results , which turned out really great, the doctor examined me said my tumor has shrunken more, and then I was sent to the infusion room. My wonderful nurses started my IV drip. I didn't have an allergic reaction. I tolerated the drug infusion well and my oncologist says that this drug will be easier on me, without the bad side effects the other drug had.
|Music to my ears!|
Many friends are following my progress and perhaps someone reading this will be interested in my experiences in fighting breast cancer, and the protocol of treatments used.
I am receiving lots of messages that people are praying for me. I am so grateful for this. Thank you for your thoughts and well wishes. Thank God for giving me strength and healing my body!
So many blessings coming my way! More gifts are coming, someone sweet and generous sent us a turkey. I received a "care and comfort basket" and many beautiful cards and mass cards.

I've been able to stay with my grandbabies on days
I don't have treatments and it's been so good for me!
Miss Emilie is getting sweeter every day!
Grandchildren are the best reward for getting old!
We are proud as peacocks of our lovely, dear Abby
being a National Honor Society member too!
A nice comforting little tea break, with my vintage dishes and silverware.
I'm finding out how much I am loved. Here you see some special Hibiscus
tea from a dear woman I love, and a beautiful pop-up card from another friend
to tell me I am being thought of and prayed for. I feel loved and blessed.
Now I want to start helping prepare for our families Thanksgiving celebrations.
Yes, Ted and I will be having 3 different occasions to be enjoying dinners
and giving thanks with our blended families. There is so much to be thankful for.
I wish our world could be at peace, that we would learn to love
one another and love God and our country the way we should.
The TV news is heartbreaking! I can't watch too much of it right now.
Be anxious for nothing, but by prayer and supplication,
with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
I'm trying to focus on my hopes, my dreams and all good things.
I am craving pumpkin pie!
I'll be baking some next week.
Here's my simple wish for each of you!
I hope you have a wonderful old-fashioned time with family and friends,
and remember to say thanks to God for all He has given us.
Our freedoms, our families to love, our friends so dear, all our blessings big and small.
