Tracey, how are you doing>  Yu were having some troubles with fluid building up.  Were they able to take care of things without additional treatment?  Are you recovering from the effects of the chemo this far out.  I feel like I never did.  I was just curious.  Hope your doing well.  Take care and we love ya.  tami

Oh the pains we go thorugh huh.  Well.hang in there. I know its just a bump in the road like you said but it doesn't make it any easier.  Take care and stay in touch.  Love ya tami

Silly me.  I was thinking your surgery was 9/22.   My apologies.  Im slipping these days.  Well, if your not going to go in for surgery this month then I guess I will have too.  Tuesday.  A big nasty surgery for me.  I am scared and I hear its a bad one.  I have alot of anxiety this time.  Recovery is long I understand.  Please say a prayer for me.  Allyssa's just as sassy as a 14 year old can be.  But she is doing well.  
I know what you mean about the dr. appts.  They are driving us insane.  Last monday we had 5 between us all.  Tomorrow, we have 4.  Never a break.  Well we just got back form SLC.  Im a bit tired.  Take care and stay tough.    Love you tami

Just a quick note to say hi!

Thank you sooooo much Tracey. I am so sorry for not responding earlier. With regards to your question on symptoms of mets to the spine...I had none.. they discovered it after I fell down the stairs with my grandson and the fracture would not heal. Soon after receiving radiation to the spine I started having some twitching to the right leg, but this has subsided.

I praise the Lord for each new day .

Love and God Bless

hey! My name is Wendy   I have been talking to Sammie.  I have enjoyed talking with her.  I saw on the board what you wrote.  I am also in awe with God.  It is hard to find people you can talk to about God.  Thank for that message.  I really need to be reminded that God is always in controll.  If  you want to talk sometime leave me a note.
I am new with  medhelp.  I just wanted to drop a note and say thanks for the encouraging thing you said to her.

I just saw the message Allyssa sent you.  Oh my gosh!!!  I am sitting here with tears in my eyes from laughing.  She continues to baffle me by her antics.   She seems so young to be come up with this cool talk.  I guess I am going to have to accept that she will be turning 14 on saturday and is growing up.  The next thing you know, I will be watching her stand there in a white wedding dress.  Wow!!!!!

Cant wait to see the doc tomorrow.  My boob feels like its on fire.  hurts like the dickens.  Something really funky is going on.  But I'm doing good under circumstances.  Just a bit anxious.  

How are you feeling?  How many more taxotere treatments.  I think maybe 2 but I', losing track.  Brain not working these days.  You hang in there too.  

We be doing this together, sisters and all.
Love you much

Okay, I got my Radiology report back today. Here is what it said. "Your right breast mammogram did not show any definite sign of cancer.  However, there is still an area of concern."  
sooooo, whatever that means.. Maybe that it was inconclusive.  I dunno.  I guess we will wait until Monday to see what the doc recommends if anything..
I think the inconclusive part can be upsetting because your not sure if you have problem or not.  Kinda leaves ya hangin...I think I would rather know for sure.  Oh well.  lv ya tami

I can't believe some of the people here on this website.  I was just accused of making up my cancer and conversion disorder. If that is the case then please, someone tell my I have scars all over my breasts, chest and stomach, went through chemo, radiation and all that good stuff.  You would think a 10 inch scar on my stomach from a paraesophageal hernia  from siezures would be enough to convince a person.  And why should I even have too. Unbelievable.  He claims to be qualified but wont divuldge his qualifications.  Perhaps he is a poser himself.   I cannot believe this.  People can be so hurtful.

I am in awe of God too.  I have to agree with you whole heartedly.  I really think I am going to be okay one way or another.  I was stangely calm when they came in and said the mammo was a bit inconclusive. Six months ago I would have been freaking.  Anyhows, i will take what comes.  
Great hearing from you as always.   Someday we are going to find eachother  for a really big hug.  for real..  
Take care and love ya like chocolate.

Tracey,
I sort of got the heads up yesterday.  Here is the deal.  The mammo came out inconclusive,meaning(they know the lump is there but can't tell if it is a viable tumor). so we went in and did the ultra sound.  the doctor says looks fairly normal but  imaging is not always as accuarate as they wish. BUT, he thinks  we are probably okay but he is going to recommend to my oncologist that we do a possible surgical biopsy.  He will leave it up to the oncologist.  He thinks it might be a lobular thingy.  So I won't know anymore until 21st as to whether or not we will persue biopsy or just watch it for 2 months as he recommended
I was amazed at how calm I was  when they told me I may have a problem.  Six months ago I would have freaked. Maybe I am excepting the whole situation more. lv tam

thank you for the well wishes and support.  Im doing okay with it right now.  i go in at 3:00 p.m. I am still strangely calm about it all.  I was feeling it this morning and it feels like it moves so I think that is a good sign but who knows.  It doesn't matter either way, I will be okay. I know god is at the Helm and if I stay close to him, he will be there for me no matter what.  I will see if I can prime the technician for an unofficial result.  They have been pretty good about sort of giving me the heads up.  If not, it will problably be the 21st when I see the oncologist if there is a problem.
We will catch ya later.lv tami

Thanks Tracey - I went out today for the first time with the short hair in public. I didnt feel as awkward as I thought I would. Im getting a wig made for me tomorrow but it will take 6-8 weeks to be done. Should have done it long ago.

Hi Tracey:

It's Marianne, your Southwest buddy.  Do not worry about your weight right now.  I promise it will come off after chemo.  They put a lot of steroids into you along with the chemo (at least they did with me) and that is what blows you up.  Just concentrate on getting well so we can see you back at work soon:)  

Love ya,  Marianne

Stupid me.  I just realized I have been leaving you notes under Darcy's notes.  I am so sorry.  chemo has really gotten to my brain.  Poor Darcy is probably wondering what is going on.  
My apologies.

Hi Tracey! Had my first chemo yesterday. It went ok- they gave my atavan for my nerves but I dont think I needed it. I feel ok this morning - drank alot of vitamin water and did the treadmill - flush out those toxins. The nurse gave me a pin that says "Fight Like A Girl"  -its great! Talk to you soon - how are you doing?
