All went well on Shapiro 9 yesterday.  My oncologist was so thrilled with the reduction of size in my breast tumor, I don’t get organ scans for another 5 weeks, which is the worst part for me.  The waiting game.  I can physically feel and see the breast tumor, I can’t see the liver tumors, although I can feel the pain from them.  These 3 Chemotherapy drugs I am on are tough.  I am getting a heavy dose of them, which is why I am one week on and two weeks off.  Because the side effects kicked me in the butt the last round I had, my oncologist offered a different drug that I could get every week and it would be a much more mild Chemo with much less side effects.  I ixnayed that and she agreed with me.  I will continue the heavy Chemos and deal with the side effects so that I get closer to my breast surgery.  My breast cancer is responding so well to this systemic treatment and we are all thrilled.  Yes, I feel like absolute crap and have zero energy or stamina.  I have a VERY long and difficult road ahead of me before I can get to a nice platform of having a good, productive quality of life, but I WILL get there.  I absolutely will get there.

Much love, keep the positive energy, love, thoughts and prayers coming.  They are working!

Love, Jessica, Scott and kids
