Flu no Flu!

Friday I was finally able to go shopping after being home for 3 days. My family was so happy there was finally food in the house. But later in the day I started feeling sick. Like I had the flu. I had a fever and was ache all over and my bones ached. I was thinking great I have gone this long with out being sick now I am sick. Then all of the suddon I woke up in the middle of the night and remembered that the nurse told me I could have flu like symtoms from the Herceptin. I didn't before so I didn't think I would this time but I guess by it self it can cause the flu like symtoms. So I was so happy when I woke up this morning and the fever and aching was gone. I am hoping that doesn't happened everytime. That could get old every two weeks. I guess I have to remember it is better than having cancer.

Rochelle - sounds like your vacation and spending time with family is really helping you! That's great that your numbers keep dropping - especially being off of chemo for awhile. Hopefully you won't have the flu symptoms very often or for very long. Keep your spirits up!! :) Jodi
