Tuesday's news from the oncologist was great - my chemotherapy dropped 41 points - that means the new treatment is working. Unfortunately I can never remember its name! But any high number that goes down is good news. There are side effects - memory loss for one.
On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!
