Hey everyone ~ hope you all had a great Mothers Day. We sure did. Here are a couple of pics from Sunday. I will post more about our day on the family blog tomorrow.
I have been feeling pretty good overall. Started on a new medication to help with the anxiety almost 3 weeks ago and it has finally helped take the "edge" off. So far, the one side effect I am having is I only sleep about 5 hours at night and have a hard time getting back to sleep.Hopefully, I will not develop anymore side effects.
My tests are scheduled for May 28th and June 2. My doctor will be getting a new baseline on me since the Herceptin treatments have had to stop. This means lots of tests. I have also decided to get another opinion with a new cardiologist before I begin on another medication. Thanks to those of you that gave me some names, that was helpful.
In the meantime I am enjoying the break and concentrating on keeping strong, healthy and positive. Running has been a huge help and I have 2 runs planned. The Race For The Cure on June 7th in Texas and The PF Chang Rock and Roll half marathon in Arizona in January! More on those later.
Many of you have asked me "what can I do"?, prayer over these next few weeks is the most important thing you can do~ please continue to pray that all these tests at the end of the month come back with good results ( we are praying for healing) and for the pain in my back to ease up ( rib and spine).
Thanks All~ Elayne
If you have questions about how anything in particular is going, please feel free to leave a comment on the blog and I will answer it.
