Just got the good news that my PET scan is clear! That means there isn't any other cancer cells anywhere in my body!!

Now I've got to call MD Anderson to figure out why they won't communicate w/ Dr. M. Grrrrr!!! It appears that Dr. L & her whole team are out of the office for a breast cancer conference in San Antonio. There was no one there to actually talk to Dr. M. Angela (Dr. L's nurse) finally called & spoke to Tiffany.

Dr. M decided to give me the full dose of Taxol once every 3 weeks. I'm fine w/ it. When Dr. L gets back in, she can contact Dr. M if she wants any changes. Apparentely the Taxol is pretty stout b/c they doped me up w/ enough stuff that I probably slept for 2 hours while I was getting the rest. I get a cocktail of a steroid, Ativan (nerves), Benadryl(allergic reaction), Zantac (allergic reaction), Aloxi (nausea), and fluids before the chemo even starts. Then I get the chemo spread over a 3 hour stretch of time. I think I slept for 2 of those 3 hours! That's an amazing feat for me since I generally don't even sleep well in my own bed - much less in day-light w/ people talking, walking around, etc.
