This is Deirdre's Breast Cancer Diary. I try to update this blog at least every evening. This is an easy way for me to keep a journal of the experience, and at the same time, I can keep my friends and family up-to-date on what is going on. I find it is not so bad to have cancer, but it is awfully depressing to talk about it. I hope you laugh as you read along. You can find the beginning in February ...in the archives. Thanks again for reading :o)

Come on, CHEMO!

I am so excited! We start chemotherapy sooooon! WOOHOO! I have been waiting so long it seems to start "chemo". Dr. Sherman tells me that the Chemotherapy and the Radiation Therapy is for insurance's sake. We got all the cancer from my breast, as per the pathology report, and chemo will take care of any microscopic cancer cells that might have happened to sneak out of the breast without us knowing to any other parts of my body. We had to wait at least four weeks after surgery before starting chemotherapy. IT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER. I don't like knowing that there might be some cancer cells hanging around trying to divide!
