Carolsue! 

Everything bodes well for you.  Wow.  I can almost picture "remission".  Have you had another biopsy since the first one?  Have any of your hormone receptor status changed?  I surely hope not because the herceptin and perjeta would give you added boost.

Love,

Brenda

hi all, I've been out of the loop for a while due to my daughter's wedding last weekend.  The wedding was perfect in every way.  Life is back to normal.  Had a ct scan last week that showed NO progression. Was a little nervous because my liver numbers were high but onc says it's because the liver has to process the carboplatin.  Feeling happy for a great wedding and CT scan!  Good to catch up with everyone here!

When people asked how old she was, she would say 1009365 more or less because she was so glad to be alive that she counted every day a birthday!

Glenna_E: Your daughter is beautiful!! I love her dress!!! I am so happy for you for having a beautiful wedding and a great report too!

Everyone: I've felt well enough since going on a lower dosage of Affinitor (5 mg) so I've been taking care of my twin grandchildren who have been sick! I love them so and am feeling good about being well enough to be gramma to and for them when they are sick!!

I've been keeping up with the boards as much as possible!!

Love to all!

Brenda, it's good to be back.  Took me an hour to catch up on my favorite threads.  There's no way to respond to all I've read because I know I would forget someone!  Congrats to carol sue on the great scan!   With the wedding being at the beach and having lots of family from out of town to cater to, there just wasn't any time to log on.  It was so nice to have this weekend to catch up with laundry, BCO, and sleep!  LOL!  Chemo this week plus babysitting on Friday for my 2 year old granddaughter and a grandchildren sleepover Saturday night to look forward to.  Life is good!!

Chanah, want to see a picture!!

Wish we had a like button.  Thanks for all the compliments on my daughter.  She looked so beautiful on her wedding day.  While the wedding was a lot of work in a very short amount of time, it was worth it all when she told me she loved me and thanked me for a beautiful wedding and letting her feel like such a princess!   I have learned through this cancer journey to appreciate those special moments and that was indeed one of them.  

Judy, how old are your twin grandchildren?  I'm babysitting my 2 year old granddaughter on Friday and enjoy her so much.  She does keep me hopping though, and I'm hoping that after chemo tomorrow I'll be up to the task!
