Great News!

O.k. I put something in the last post I didn't mean to post on this blog. I was a little worked up and it went on a family blog. I forgot to edit it out. The part about suing the hospital or the reader's of the images. Again sorry that was in there.

I had a doctor's appointment with Dr. Rado today. I was a little weird but we made it through. He thinks that the scan didn't look bad but that we need to keep a careful watch. So I will continue to get blood work once a month and scans every couple of months. I asked if we were going to keep up the three month visits. He said two months he thinks for now.

He gave me standing orders for Blood work and Herceptin every other week. Zometa once a month. He also gave me orders for an echo (heart test), MRI for my head and MRI for my hip and pelvis. I have been having some pain in my hip area so we are just going to check it out.

I am not sure if I put it in the last post but I am doing really well. I feel better than I have for a while. I expect to continue to increase my energy and stregth as time goes on. Thanks for all the words of encouragement. It is nice to have such good friends. Thank you!

I am so glad to hear that you are feeling well.

I have to tell you how much it meant to me that you came and chatted with me when I visited your ward last month. I'm sure it didn't seem like a big deal to you, but it literally made my day!

You are so genuine and just wonderful. Thank you, Rochelle!
