On Monday Steve and I met with my oncologist Dr. Stella who gave us the good news that blood work is all normal. Yay! I still have fatigue but I can tell I am getting better every day. Hey, I am not going to complain about sleeping 9-10 hours a night.
I will continue to receive my herceptin treatment every three weeks, but my last treatment is May 7th! Yay, yay!
I will then get my port removed after that. Yay, yay, yay!
Dr Stella will continue to see me every three months for 2 years. I am blessed to have such a caring, brilliant doctor guiding me on this road.
In February I have appointments with my plastic surgeon, cardiology, radiology and physical therapy. I still am dealing with neuropathy in my feet and some nerve pain in my right arm but those are long term issues that many cancer patients deal with. I will continue getting acupuncture and seeing a psychologist for awhile.
Steve and I are looking forward to visiting our family in Minnesota next week and after the flu season subsides, we will plan a much needed vacation. Now that Steve is retired from the fire department we are enjoying some down time and watching his “epic” beard grow.😄
This will be my last update for a while unless something unexpected happens. We hope to give you a final update in May. So, if you have any questions for us just contact us directly.
Thank you all for your continued support and prayers....Happy Winter!
