Quick update.  Had doctor appointment.  Echo results are perfect.  Told doctor about last symptoms after last treatment and how port access hurt like hell.  Doctor not worried at all and said for me not to worry either  Things are looking very good.  Shot day tomorrow and then ONE MORE CHEMO this same way and ONE LAST SHOT.  Give the little lady a hand for making it through.  After last chemo I will get another extensive PET CT Scan.  Then I will go on maintenance for a year.  This consists of blood draw through port, saline flush and only one chemo drug.  No more blood draws on off weeks, no more chemo pills 4 the day before, the day of and the day after, and NO MORE SHOT.  They will add an estrogen pill.  Tomorrow is chicken shit shirt day.  Wish me luck tomorrow.  Also petunias did get planted.  Took 2 hours and 50 minutes and was my face red.  High blood pressure.  Went to Gabe’s and get this.  Got 9 tops for $44.00.  Is that a deal or what.  Made me feel good.  Ok signing out for now. 

PS  thanks for all the positive comments.  You guys don’t know how much they mean to me and I know they are definitely helping with this nightmare.  Thanks again.

  2. AWESOME! A good report and things are looking up! And you did get those petunias planted I am so very proud of you! Because to be honest I never get stuff planted I am the worst gardener on the planet and I’m healthy.
    Grace is right you are beating this thing! Hugs my friend.
