Class of 2000, part II

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Dropping by to say 'hi' ! I'm doing well, and actually had my first post-chemo haircut last week!

I am still on an IV drug treatment every 3 weeks. It's a monoclonal antibody that specifically attacks the protein on the cancer cells, and prevents them from reproducing. There are no discernable side effects from it, though it can damage the heart, which is why I have to have an echocardiogram every 3 months. Next one is in November, and it will probably be the last, as my treatment finishes in January sometime!

I'm feeling good, but still get very short of breath when walking or doing any sort of physical activity. Apparently, the chemo scarred my lungs. :(
I keep hoping it will get better with time, but there's no guarantee.

Anyway, I am alive and have EVERY intention of staying that way for many years to come! :D

Hi! I'm not sure I've ever posted in this thread. I'm class of 2001 but almost 2000.

We're talking about missing the messageboards on FB, so I'm stopping by to post.

Hello, Dunthule! In the olden days, they called me Lali. ;)
