I am not superwoman!

Today is 3 weeks since my surgery. I was all night with pain in my upper right chest and this morning it hurt to breath. After some painkillers and breakfast the pain went down and I could breath into that "lung breath thingy" without too much pain. The last few days I have been going as if I didn't have surgery. I was driving, cleaning the kitchen and even picking up clothes from the laundry. Well the pain this morning reminded me to take it easy (there is a reason that the doctor said I will need 6-8 weeks to recover). I have not left the bed all day. Sami and Nina have been waiting on me.

I still have three more Hercepton treatment coming up....tomorrow is 1 of 3. I had to be on this drug for 1 year and May 21st is my last one. This wonder drug reduces the chance of getting this type of cancer (HER2/neu+) coming back by 30% in the next 5 years.

Not much to report today.....
