Dashboards Confessionals by a Stage IV Breast Cancer Patient

So it's been more then a minute since my last update. T is responding well to the chemo....or was in the beginning. The tumors in her lungs were shrinking at such a fast rate that instead of ordering the regular protocol of 4 more chemo sessions, he did 2 more and then scans, but these scans showed the tumors didn't grow or shrink....the doctor seems to think it may be because we only did half the protocol, so 2 more. Last one is this coming Friday, then scans.

Anyone else on this chemo, Kadsayla? If so did you have these side effects also?
...tender stomach? (We call it the punch, cause it feels like someone punched you in the stomach)? empty feeling inside, like something is drilling out your insides?
...nausea that comes and goes throughout the 3 weeks between chemo sessions?

Anywho.....getting to the DASHBOARD CONFESSIONALS

When T was 1st diagnosed, she started placing her phone on the dashboard of her car and just talking about what was's unscripted and very raw, so not for the faint of heart. She has started posting them on a new blog in chronological order...Please go check them out and by all means comment and let us know you stopped by. The blog can be found at...

Peace & Love to you all.
