I'm sitting in a recliner chair in the infusion suite with a heating pad behind my back and a heating pad on my tummy and a warm blanket on top! I'm cooking nice and good! I haven't received my chemo meds yet, just the liquids and anti-nauseau meds so far but they will start the chemo soon.
The doctor noticed a major difference in the tumors - they had all changed and shrunk down! Yay - PRAISE THE LORD! So, we are continuing with the original chemo plan every other week for 8 weeks and then 12 weeks of a different chemo drug.
I got my genetic test results back and I do have a gene mutation for breast cancer which means that there is a chance that I can get ovarian cancer as well in my lifetime. So, we'll be talking about that with a genetic counselor. It also means my girls have a 50% chance that they have this same gene passed down from me. That makes me sad for them, but we won't know anyway until they are tested. Another good thing about the genetic test is that it told Dr. Webster a little bit more about my type of tumor and she might add in another drug during the last stage of chemo.
Anyway, during the writing of this book, the nurse came over and administered the "red" chemo drug and so now I'm on my last chemo drug for the day! It should take about 45 minutes and then I'm outa' here!
