Michelle is long gone back to school, but I thought that this photo of the two of us in my bed was a little prettier than just me lying around in bed......... You can see how lucky I am to have a great view of the outdoors.
And, that's what I've been doing...... I'm on Day 7 now of Taxotere #2........ it continues to be a tough go, and even with the dose reduction, I still feel like I'm taking quite a pounding. Anyway, today seemed to be much better and I hope that is a good sign of things to come, although I was still tired and resting most of the day, I started "feeling" more myself, and that is always a welcome feeling.
I continue to be plagued with low grade fevers, weakness and fatigue and just a general malaise. I do take CSGF (Neupogen), which homecare gives me via injection every day. That is supposed to keep my white blood counts from bottoming out. Both Neupogen and the Taxotere cause bone pain though, and for that, I use heat, Morphine and careful use of tylenol (i.e. if I do not have a fever, I can use Tylenol).
Anyway, even having said all of that, I think the corner is turning, and we'll see what this week brings. Wish me luck!!!!!
