LBBC Conference and Chemo

I went to the Living Beyond Breast Cancer Conference in Philadelphia, PA this weekend.  There were a few good speakers, some interesting vendors, and some interesting new metsters (people with metastatic breast cancer) to meet.  I was worried about handling the flight, but managed it without too much trouble.

Today, I had like my 4th or 5th Halavan chemo treatment.  It started out with me getting sick, but they quickly got that under control and the rest of it went smoothly.  I now have to get a pre-liver panel done and three post neupogen shots(for low white blood cells).   Hopefully this stuff is working.

The also increased my pain meds to three Oxycotin doses a day and told me to take the liquid morphine when I got to level 5 pain instead of 8.   This is is in an effort to better control my stomach pain.
