Spa Day #1 scheduled for Friday, August 3rd
Lots of decisions were made today.
I decided to go with the series of 6 chemotherapy treatments on every third Friday, starting next Friday August 3rd. That means that those treatments will end before Thanksgiving. Then I have doses of Herceptin every third Friday for a year. Between now and then I have to have a medi-port inserted (requires anethesia and a designated driver afterwards) and I also need an echo-cardiogram so we have base-line heart data to begin with. I will also start treatments at the Lymphedema Center in Portland and will schedule a visit to see my surgeon sometime next week for more drainage. At this point I'm waiting for everything to be coordinated and finalized so maybe I won't need to drive to Portland every day. Friday and most of next week are going to be busy busy busy so I think my summer is tomorrow and the weekend. Have a lot to cram into those three days!
Remember these gals?
