And we begin...

I had another follow up yesterday at UCLA with my oncologist. Things are going well with the rash, so she has started me on my chemo maintenance drugs. The course is so confusing, I'm going to need one of those pill boxes my parents use! One pill one day, two the next, one pill the next day and one every ten days. Oh my! I'm confused already! I will be on these drugs for the next two years. I'll have my labs done in two weeks, and she wants to see how my blood counts do with these meds. If things stay the course and I remain stable, she may approve me to go back to work soon! Things are definitely on the right track!

In other good news, she gave me her blessing to drive again. Brett is finally free of being my personal chauffeur. To celebrate, I drove to Starbucks this morning and got my car washed. I'm so excited to say that I'm on my second tank of gas for the year! ;)

Brett and I will be celebrating 11 years of marriage tomorrow. I can't help be think of all the trials we've been through (sickness and in health, but mostly sickness). He is amazing, and I'm so thankful for all he has done during this time.

That is all - I'll keep you posted! KCA
