Truffles1968, I'm doing the same thing... I think I overdid today though with all the cleaning, running errands, making freezer meals etc...... I keep forgetting that even though they gave me Herceptin and Perjeta for my last infusion, I still have some side effects rearing their ugly heads. Feeling a little worn out today after feeling so good for the last week... dialing down, can't get sick before surgery!!!!
Smurfette26, I was actually thankful to have the neoadjvuant therapy when I looked at my timeline. Finished Chemo Nov. 10th... so, even though I'm dealing with some residual side effects, I'm glad to be done with that part before the holidays... Surgery won't be a picnic, but I feel like at least I'll be in recovery/recuperating mode... Of course, going into the holiday I'll still be recuperating, and they have every post op appt known to man racked and stacked through the 23rd of Dec. What chemo regimen are you having?
gaspasser, we're a day apart for surgery.... I'll be thinking of you!
BethL, your date is coming up quick... praying you through any anxiety you may have... I'm having my moments in that department... I won't be having reconstruction, and my surgeon has her associate doing the other side, so that they will work simultaneously to reduce my time in surgery... happy about that!
Praying for every one of us out here!
Be strong and courageous and do not be afraid, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
