Update 5/17/2010

Hello Family and Friends!

Tomorrow is my last day of radiation (#32)!!  I am a little behind schedule due to them giving me 4 days off 2 weeks ago. My skin reacted so badly (due to the oral chemo i’m on–which increases sensitivity of the cells)—so I’m finishing this week instead of last.  My mom and dad are meeting me there tomorrow, so they can be with me as I ‘ring the bell.’   I will be glad to drive away from the hospital tomorrow.

Jerel and I met with my Oncologist last week to discuss where we go from here.  We are in the same place we’ve been twice before.  I’m done with “treatment” for now—and we just hope (and pray!) that this cancer does not come back.  I will go back to have some blood drawn in 5 weeks and go back to see him in 6 weeks.    There are some new drugs that are in FDA approval for Triple Negative Breast Cancer—but we are praying that we never even need to know about them!!

On to happier things….Jerel and I celebrate our 15th anniversary this week!  I hope to post something special for that.

Thanks for caring, and for reading

Love,

S
