Regardless, my blood pressure was 126/78 .... I lost 6 lbs. I know I'm not suppose to loose weight now, but I can tell you that I'm not complaining about getting some of this chunk-a-dunka-ness off me. They seemed satisfied with my blood count, took notice of my nose bleeds, did a breast exam and sent me off with some encouragement and hugs.
Q: When will my radiation begin?
A: Three weeks after my last treatment (estimate May 17)
Q: When will my Herceptin (only) begin?
A: I will have 11 more sessions after this chemo round, which will total 17. It will continue on the same schedule as now, every 3 weeks. Basically, no break in treatment. (estimate Dec 13)
Q: Do I have to have another blood transfusion?
A: Not this time, count looks good. :)
Q: Do I have to continue the Neulasta shot?
A: Yep :(
Q: How is my prognosis?
A: "I plan to fire you in 5 years" says Doc with a hug. "I'm going to make sure you will be just fine."
Got to work about 11:00. Made it through 5:45! Debbie gave me another set of "ear-bobs" as Grandma Pearl called them....pretty dangly earrings shaped as a flower. Along with her fabulous Congratulations! Another round behind you! She has been so sweet giving me a gift after each chemo session. I'm looking forward to the last set, as she let it slip what they are!!!!
This is going to be a good week. Feeling stronger. Got some "plans of attack" in life. Looking forward to Easter Sunday service.
Blessings to you ~
