A Bump in the Road

I was so excited to finally be done with chemo. With Christmas being 3 weeks after that treatment, I was sure I would be feeling great for the holidays. Well, I was wrong. I now have shingles. I'm hoping to feel better by next week so things can get back to normal around here.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Round One-Done!

Yesterday, my oncologist entered the room in a celebratory mood. My chemotherapy treatment for the day, would be my last! I will still be getting my Herceptin treatment every three weeks, but with the chemo out of the way, we can move forward with surgery(round two) sometime in January.

Doc was also very pleased with the majorly reduced size of the mass that will continue to shrink over the next few weeks prior to my surgery. Things are going well. I feel like Christmas came yesterday and am feeling even more encouraged that I will beat this! 

Thank you for all the wonderful support and your continued prayers! They are definitely working!

With love,

  1. Thaw the frozen bread dough and roll it out to approximately  an 11x11 square.
  2. Cover the dough with the sliced pepperoni.
  3. Layer on the cheeses. 
  4. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  5. Starting at one end, roll the dough.
