manymanymany big thanks to all of you for your support and kudos and lasagnas and hand creams and kind words and pillows and, of course, the SOFA!

the cover of today's nytimes has an article about AVASTIN, a drug used to treat advanced breast, colon and lung cancer. the big question is; are the drug cos. bilking patients by charging 100K a YEAR for it? hmmm, let me think a minute. And you thought herceptin was expensive at 40k...

lou is home w/a fever so no napping in site. that's ok. since i didn't need a neulasta shot for my last time i am so chipper! and it will be interesting to see how pain-free this chemo is w/bone aches.

Welcome to the chemo-free world. Actually, technically-speaking Tamoxifen is a form of chemo drug. But you know what I mean. You are going to be getting better and better with each passing day. Today is my 8-week post-chemo anniversary and I couldn't feel healthier! Or happier. You'll be in the same boat!
