I've had 2 more chemo treatments since I last updated everyone. Both went well - things are much less fuzzy since they substituted a non-drowsy medication for Benedryl which makes me sleepy. Second treatment went so well that Mom and I ran errands and went shopping afterwards. I was up till 10:30pm and still running strong! Today after my 3rd time, I'm a bit more tired. Yet we managed to get some errands done and I haven't needed a nap. So apparently nothing serious.
One drawback is that my white blood count has taken a serious hit. It's running at 1.7 instead of the normal 3.9 - 11 that it should be. Next week is a treatment with Herceptin only (non-chemo drug) so they're hoping my immune system will have a chance to recoup. Overall I'm still feeling fine and sleeping pretty well. Hard to ask for more than that!

Thanks for the many prayers and emails. I so enjoy reading each one.
