woo hoo my dear readers! Well maybe a little toot... The Doctors modified my Chemo treatment and I was/am tolerating it pretty well.... But as with all "drugs"...there are side effects. ;( I would list the side effects, but I can't talk as fast as those ads on TV for drugs....where they reel off a litany of side effects that are longer than the ingredients of the pill itself.
