    I am doing alright. Had been having middle of the night leg pain so was sent for an ultrasound to see if I had blood clots in my legs. I do NOT. The Tamoxifen they have me on can cause clots, so glad they were quick to check me out. All of the treatments I have endured can cause muscle pain and that it likely what I am experiencing now. My hair is starting to come back, I had a trim a couple of weeks ago. I will have my first mammogram early April, then we'll know how things really are. My skin healed from radiation, no blisters, thank goodness. I continue to go to the hospital every 3 weeks for my Herceptin infusion, this will continue until July/August, it's a one year program. I am cold all the time now, except for the "super hot flashes" that the Tamoxifen brings - they are wayyyy worse than the natural ones. I actually feel like I could spontaneously combust! I think I'll feel better when I get the "all clear" after my mammogram - I hope that's what I get. Then I can really begin to live my new normal.

    Thank you for checking in with me.

    We are still praying for more positive outcoms! So glad you didn't end up with blisters -- so painful and dangerous. Keep us posted, and sending you gentle hugs!

    Wishing you the very best, and continued healing and positive spirit!
    I can imagine that you are on pins and needles waiting for the mammogram.

    Thanks for the update, Gayle. This sounds promising! (I bet the excellent care you are getting from your two nurses has something to do with this .) I'm glad you didn't wind up with blisters.

    You're so strong! You've been working so very hard and doing a fantastic job. We're sending along continuing hopes and prayers and good wishes and positive energies.
