I had a great time and enjoyed meeting everyone! The conference wasn't bad but I tend to really enjoy the personal connections you make. Penny glad you made it home, did you wear your blue wig all they way home on that train?
I have to say I was bad and played my cancer card at the airport, the line to get thru the security gate was so long you were lining up along the moving sidewalks. I thought it might take just 2 hours to get thru that line it was so bad. My daughter said to me I could always find the handicap lane and sure enough I told one of the workers I had cancer and was exhausted and didn't think I could make it standing in that line with my pain. They walked my daughter and I straight to the front of the line and we were thru the security point in 10 minutes. Sure beat a couple hours standing in line!!! I don't play the card often but times like this you just can't help it :)

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO YOU ALSO, so sorry it wasn't a good experience....now I have to use lotrimin (sp) to numb it cause I think it is the biggest needle in the world....

Like having a bulls eye that they push a 1 inch needle into. i think some of them enjoy inflicting pain. how about we just shoot each other with arrows with those***needles for tips. One day of an aromatase inhibitor to bring back all the joint,muscle and back pain. Had to reach for the hydromorphone after crying in pain for hours..duh why did i think i could outlast the pain. can't take tylenol or advil so here's to thinking maybe a pump might not be a bad idea..was just trying to stay out of the infusion chairs and make more memories with my daughter. Happy Mother's Day!!! Please have a drink for me and I will try to eat dessert for all! Sandy you always give my sagging spirits a boost.
