My oncological nurse called after speaking with an oncologist and it's recommended that I stop taking the Arimidex while I'm having radiation treatments and we'll revisit Arimidex or some alternative in the New Year. I'm so relieved to get more than just a "wait and see" response. I'm to report back to them next Wednesday and let them know how I'm doing. I hope, by the, my bones and joints won't be giving me such grief!!
Mom stopped by just as I was walking out the door to my radiation treatment and look what she brought! Mom's Christmas Shortbread! It's the one thing I most associate with Christmas and it's completely irresistible to me! I can resist all other shortbreads but just one look at Mom's and I'm a goner. It's everything about them. The recipe, these particular cutters, Mom's particular way of decorating them. They define Christmas for me! Thanks, MOM!! Of course, you know these will never make it to Christmas and since I deserve a break today, I'm eating one (one? AS IF!) right now!!
Radiation Treatment Status: 13 done. 17 to go!
