Dear Friends and Family,

TW and I attended appointments yesterday at MDA.Β  When you are at an MDA, consider it a “Most of the Day” event going from appointment to appointment, seeing one doctor after another and doing one test after another.Β  Yesterday was not different….Β  I started my morning off with an echocardiogram to check my heart to make sure that it is ok to receive chemo treatments.Β  I also went to the Infusion Therapy Center where I learned all about the port that I will be having surgery for to receive chemo from.Β  When the PA saw that I still had all of my drains in from surgery, she said that my port surgery and chemo would be delayed.Β  I need to have all of my drains out before they will do anything.Β  Next, I headed over to the plastic surgery department “plastics” (asΒ MDA calls it) to talk to them about my drains and a problem that I was having with one of them leaking.Β  The last appointment of the day was with my oncologist.Β  I really love my oncologist, she is so positive and does a great job explaining things.Β  I have the most common type of breast cancer, 100% estrogen-receptor- positive.Β  I am progesterone-receptor-negative, and HER2-negative.Β  I will receive Taxol weekly for 12 weeks and AC every 2 weeks for 4 treatments.Β  My port operation and first chemo treatment will now be on April 28th.Β Β I am HOPEFULE that the drains will be out soon, considering I have had them for over 3 weeks.

DRAINS, DRAINS, GO AWAY!!!

Anchored in HOPE,

JW
