Update

Thanks to all my die hard buddies for keeping me in their thoughts and prayers.  As of 12/17, I am back in treatment, once a month Caelyx (same as Doxil in US.)  He was quite enthusiastic about improvements in my condition and thinks this may buy me some good extra quality time.  What a roller coaster ride this has been, I will just fasten my seat belt and hope for a good ride.
Merry Christmas everybody!
Love,
Sharon

I know it always seems like one step forward, two steps back.  But this is one step forward that is certainly great news!  Never thought I would be telling someone how happy I am they are going into chemo, but yours is certainly a unique situation.  Seems your body is not done fighting, so your cheering section is right here ready to help you keep it up!!  Merry Christmas to you and your family, and I hope this Christmas is more special than you could ever imagine!

I'm glad to hear that you are doing better and are able to start on a new chemo.  I'm surprised that you have never taken Caylex/doxil before.  I'm hopeful that this will keep you feeling well and I hope you have a very, very, happy Christmas and are looking forward to a healthier new year!

Are you talking about me?  I know all those Taco Bell trip are catching up with me. And you're right - I'm not ready to sing. So Sharon - give this old lady some time to practice my tra-la-la's. Hugs to you all.  irene
