Finished Round #23 yesterday...was changed to Zofran for the anti nausea drug given with the chemo. I had forgotten that Zofran can give you a bad headache and bad heart burn...remembered during the night and took Zantac and it worked miracles..still not much sleep due to the steroids, but I will probably be able to sleep tonight. I sure do miss my friend, sweet Anita. We so enjoyed our chats on our chemo induced insomnia nights...she will be missed forever. and never forgotten.

I didn't have to see Dr. Sneed with this treatment, so I was able to take it here in Hot Springs...saved me a trip to Little Rock. I also get the chance to meet new people and hear their stories. I met one sweet lady and when I told her that I had Inflammatory Breast Cancer eleven years ago, she said "Oh, my God, and you are still alive!" She said that she had a friend that had IBC and she lost her fight after fourteen months. I told her that I was very thankful and grateful...and that God has the plan for each of us, and we just have to put our faith in Him and trust Him!

On Sunday after church, Sherry hosted a surprise 50th birthday party for Lisa Ellison..it was such a perfect day....she was totally surprised..she had thought the party was for me, celebrating being cancer free. Sherry was the perfect hostess, the food was awesome and it was so good being with friends, visiting and laughing..I had not been able to go to church for three weeks because of being sick and then the weather...this was the perfect cure for my cabin fever.

Thanks again for all the continued love, support and prayers...I appreciate it so very much...I have my pink gloves on and will continue to "Fight Like a Girl!"

Found your blog via Daria's and thought I'd stop by. Chemo is so draining and one of the worst parts is how it affects your sleep. Just wanted to express my good wishes and invite you to stop by nancyspoint.com sometime. I'm very sorry about the loss of your daughter.
