Hi ladies,
to all of you who sent me birthday wishes for October 25th,I say a very big thank you, you know who you are!. I havent been very active on the bcna online forum, in fact I havent been very active at all!Life has been very quiet, chemo three weeks out of 4, and as its a 4 hour round trip and then factor in the chemo infusion it makes for a very long day,however, you do what you have to do,my hair is growing back all white and curly, at 64, not sure about the white, however I will take whatever comes.It has been 4 months since I have been on abraxane and whilst in the beginning it had very little side effects,it seems to be catching up with me,however its a lot better than the vinoralbine that I was on before.
Its a beautiful spring day and I have just been outside and picked some of my glorious roses,they are my pride and joy and the best I have had so far,to all of you I wish you well and hope that you are all chugging along okay, or as best you can.Its been 6 and a half years since my original diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer and I would like to think that I will still be writing to you in another 6 and a half years, this was not how I had planned my retirement, however its all a matter of how the cards fall.
I am so very fortunate that I have the most caring,loving and supportive partner, who at 75 I am sure did not plan on looking after me,
but he has taken on the job and is simply a champion.
I had a phone call from my oncologist this morning and he is trying to get me on to a access program for a combination of drugs, so things are looking up, I will not know all the details until Nov.16th but certainly is something to look forward to.
So with the sun shining and a blue sky outside, things are looking up!!!.
Once again, thankyou, your ongoing encouragement and support is very special, and at times is simply what gets me through the day.
