It's been a few tough weeks for me with alot of ups and downs! the test I referred to in an earlier post oncotype I learned on May the 13th that I would need to start Chemotherapy to lower my risk significantly of this cancer coming back. Needless to say not the best thing I have heard in a while - I knew that this was a possibly but a girl can only hope RIGHT? I will start chemo on the June 17th - I will do 4 treatments of TC chemotherapy (Adriamycin and Cytoxan) every other week then I will have 12 weeks of Taxol this will be weekly. So yes 20 weeks of chemo is what I will be facing! So with all this being said and being down - my boss said a phrase to me last week while I was struggling - Nikki you have to think of the future not the now - this is where my title of this post came from, it is so very true - the future is what I will focus on. I will do my very best to stay positive and fight this to the very end. The appointments and the doctor visits are very frequent and sometimes its alot to keep up with but I am doing pretty well, not missed anything yet :) .
I again want to thank you ALL for the well wishes, the cards, the texts, emails, the fundraisers and all your thoughts and PRAYERS! All of these and my family is what keeps this girl going, I may hit a few bumps in the road, but I will just keep jumping them a move on! God is great and I know I am a fighter! I got THIS!!! I will update soon!!!
