It's been a while since I posted anything - but I've been watching everyone.

I was in quite a depression for a while. I really didn't care about posting.

I was in the hospital the first week of November. Because of the problems breathing the doc decided to hold my Tarceva for 2 weeks. After starting it back up - I don't seem to have as many side effects as the first time I took it.

( at least as of now )

Went for my follow up CT on Tuesday 11/29 - the results were so encouraging...CT showed the primary tumor has shrunk by 20% in the 3 weeks I've been back on the Tarceva !!! No other cancers were found !! The onc wants to do a chest xray in 3 weeks.. We do another MRI of the brain in January, the last check (10/05 ) showed the 1st met is gone and the 2nd one is shrinking !!

I just had to share the good news .

The down side to all this is that when I talked to my sister tonight, she told me of a friend of hers was just dc'd with LC.

I sent the LC web site link to her. I hope we can give her encouragement too.

I tried to explain about all the wonderful people that are here.

Happy holidays to all.
