|Awaiting tumor marker results and Oncology appointment|
Because of the high toxicity of this chemo, Monday's dose was stopped when Heidi immediately developed a serious reaction to Taxotere as soon as the dose was started. So they tried again Tuesday, going very slowly, adding other meds to reduce her body's negative reaction. It worked and she got her complete second dose of Taxotere!
At the same time they were starting the second dose of Taxotere on Tuesday, I was seeing my own Oncologist for a followup after my cancer surgery on March 12. Everything looked great he said, including my tumor marker(PSA)! So I rejoined Heidi for her hours spent slowly receiving the Taxotere.

Back home now, we are both exhausted but so very thankful to God, to the staff at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and so many friends & family praying for us, sending positive thoughts our way.
So thank you!
