Let's Get This Party Started

I got the call! I will start my first chemo on Friday, November 16th at 1:00 pm. I will have more details tomorrow. All of my labs, scans, and tests have come back clean. The pathology report found that it's HER2-negative, which is a good thing. The plan is that I will have 4 cycles (3 weeks apart) of one drug, then 4 cycles of another. Then surgery in the spring, followed by radiation.

I am still trying to wrap my head around this! It's only been 15 days. I know I can do this. I'm one tough cookie but sometimes feel like I'm falling to pieces. My sister Carol has been here for me, giving me strength and courage. She says I need to walk through the fear and get to the other side.

I've noticed that those required hugs I get each day actually pat most of the crumbs back into place and help me hold myself together.


  1. Oh! The cookies are SO cute! You will become an expert, and you are a blog genius, a compassonite friend to others and I know you will re-organize the whole nurses station with incredible work tools!!

    1. I'm actually looking forward to it! I can't wait to show them the new electronic symptoms survey I developed!

  2. Ha! You are both too funny! A daily online hug sent to you both! Love ya!


    1. Thanks Heather! I'm up to 3 hugs this morning!
