The First Week of Eastertide
Dear Faithful Family & Friends,
I apologize for the long delay in updating my blog! I am doing very well; in fact, since I wrote to you in March, I have been on two “real” trips and one “imaginary” trip. More about that later!
I continue to receive Herceptin infusions, every three weeks. I have had no side effects except a little blurry vision on the day of infusion. I am sad to report that my breast oncologist in Gainesville, Dr. Robert Carroll, closed his practice: the insurance companies refused to reimburse him for the cost of the chemotherapy drugs. I am grateful that Dr. Carroll and his team helped me get through the nightmare of chemotherapy but I am sad for the women in the future who will not benefit from his unique practice.
Dr. Mabry in Tallahassee is now my oncologist; Erin is his nurse and I have received expert care from the practice.
This will be short but, in my next update, I will provide photos and describe my travels.
