Here's the update folks! There's no leak in my port, which is good news. I added a pic of the Portagram because it's just cool. My labs are great, with my White Blood Cell count at 5.9 (even better than last time). I think that's due to the fasting. The doctor is all for what I'm doing, and says I look fantastic.

She said that the infection I had last week is from febrile neutropenia (fever from low blood counts), and can be life threatening. So this next time I'm going to get the painful shot the next day to stimulate my bone marrow to produce white blood cells.

Friday is my LAST CHEMO!! And I meet with the breast surgeon on January 28th to schedule my surgery as soon as possible. They will take out my port at the same time they do the breast surgery. I'll still have infusions of Herceptin every three weeks, but after surgery, I will start my radiation therapy. I don't know that there will ever be a point that I'm "done" with cancer treatments, but damn I'm excited right now!!!

Waiting for my xray....
