Well, spring is officially here. Here in western Washington it isn't much different than winter or fall. LOL
There is Skagit County we have the Tulip Festival. It is cool. Tulips and daffodils galore. Farms of them as far as the eye can see. :)
Maybe someday we can go see them. Here are a couple of pics from Google of our flowers.
Aren't they lovely?
Now the update. Last Wednesday I started my treatment. Two pills that I have to take until they do the job. One is called Ibrance. It wasn't available when I had the breast cancer 12 years ago. It is the 'chemo' pill. It works different than the regular bad chemo. Instead of going all over your entire body and making you feel lousy this med targets the breast cancer wherever it may be and knocks it out. The breast cancer is in my lungs. It is not lung cancer. That is different. This pill is not suppose to have the bad side effects that regular chemo has.
The other pill is Letrozole. It is an estrogen blocking pill. Estrogen is what this cancer eats to grow. There will be a few side effects though, I have been told with the Ibrance. But they are mild. One is fatigue. Well, I won't know if it effects me that way since I am already so exhausted all the time anyway. lol The usual things that are listed for side effects like nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting and all that fun stuff are possible too.
I have been a little off balance but I will survive. :)
The estrogen blocking pill could cause hormonal problems they say. I don't know if that will happen as I am way past the hot flashes and etc stage. :)
Anyway the first pill is taken every day for 3 weeks then off for 1 week, then start again. The other is everyday, no stopping.
Then on day 14 I need to do labs to see if it is working and now my white blood cell count is. If it gets low I would be less able to fight infections.
Ok enough of that boring stuff :)
We have found a place for my husband to go so he can be taken care of and so I can take care of just me. Please pray that the paperwork can be done quickly and he can get settled soon, ok?
I really need to sleep for a month or so. lol
Ok my friend I have to go to sleep.
