Great people around me

Well, start off with I am not working any more. It's best if I am not around sick children and they require a lot of energy. 
My husband has some really great people he works with who ask about me and pray for me and all of us. Even some of the people he sells parts too ask about me too. I can't believe how nice everyone has been.
My co-workers have been so great. They have been such a great support and help to me. They hated to see me leave but are staying in touch with me and want me to come back soon. 
Church friends have been great too.
You know people truly do care about us and are trying to help us. Some even say that they would help clean house, shop, take me to appointments, and so much more. It means a lot. I am very independent and would never ask for any help but if it gets to the point that I can't do things it great that I have friends and family to come and help my family.
My wonderful husband has been so great. He worries about me more than I realize. I try to let him know I am fine but he can tell when I'm not. I am so lucky to have him. The kids are doing great.

#1 Chemo Taxotere

Well, my first dose of taxotere went well. I didn't get sick or feel bad. I am tired as usual. The benadryl they put in my IV made me very sleepy. I dosed during treatment, on the way home and slept once home. I slept for three hours or so. They told me I could take claritin for three days to help with the booster shot I take 24 hrs later. It hasn't help me yet. Of course I got off brand.
I am anemic. My iron was very low this time. Maybe because of PMS for a wk and heavy. My ovals aren't going to sleep yet. Foust put me on some pills to stop it and wanted me to see a gyn. So I did. The gyn tried to clean out my cervix but could not get it done very well. Now I have to have an ultra sound of cervix to see if it's big or something could be wrong like tumors. Great news uhn.
Just a note make sure you get yearly paps, and checks with doctors to help stay on top of things.
