give those lemons a squeeze! it's time again to go to lemonland to protect yourself from breast cancer. spread the word. it's time to squeeeeeze!
i went to a cardiologist last week for the results of an ekg, ecg + chest xray to see "where my hearts at" + what the cardiologist recommends regarding continuing 9 months of herceptin that previously damaged my heart. he said the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over again + expecting a different result. he also said my heart was into the normal range + their aren't any drugs to protect my heart from the damage, but i should resume the chemo because of it's cancer recurrence prevention benefits + he'll treat the heart failure symptoms as they reappear with ace inhibitors. now i have to have a follow up appointment with my chemotherapist, but i'm not in a hurry. i haven't seen her since november, when i refused to have my infusion + wrote about it here.
basically, it's up to me whether to resume infusions that have a 50% chance of preventing a life threatening cancer recurrence + a 100% chance of damaging my heart. the moral is: detect + treat life threatening illnesses as early as possible :)

mod*tot is loving nursery school + today was her 3rd day. i'm still hanging out there to make sure she's getting comfortable, but today i just had to get a chest xray before i see my cardiologist next monday + i can't bring her into the xray room, so i told her i was going to get zapped at the doctor + be right back before snack time (she knows she can't go in the zapping room, from when i had radiation daily for 6 weeks a few months ago. she hand motioned me to go + when i came back in an hour, she was sitting in a row boat outside with another little girl. yay!!!!!!

here comes st.patrick's day + it finally feels like winter in silicon valley. there's snow on the "mountains" above san jose, but it's supposed to be 68 degrees this sunday. i felt an earthquake tonight + it turned out to be a 4.2 about 50 miles away near mt.diablo. yikes.
it's soooo fun hosting giveaways + getting to "meet" readers of my blog via email. i wish everyone could win. i really love the online shops + products i'm featuring + i have lots more to post! i'm getting swamped with entries + i'll keep it up as long as i get donations for giveaways.
