The diarrhea has finally stopped! Well, for a little while, at least. I was so happy about this result that I went off the BRAT diet for lunch, and I paid for it a few hours later. So it’s back to mostly a BRAT diet for now.
We had a great long weekend away at the Sonoma coast. The weather was spectacular and it was wonderful to get away for a few days. The Mountain Boys (our cats) missed us and greeted us warmly. After unloading and taking a nap, Ted gave me a buzz! He was tentative at first, but at some point he said it was kind of fun. I think he did an awesome job! You can’t see many bald spots, so for now I’m just going to keep it as a buzz. Perhaps we’ll shave it this weekend. I feel like GI Jane – it feels super cool!
Tomorrow I have to get a blood draw to see how my blood counts are doing. Wednesday I have an appointment with Dr. K to discuss the results and I assume confirm the treatment for Thursday’s chemo session. I’ll ask her at that time if my treatments will be extended since I’ll have missed a dose of the Perjeta.
I came home to find that a FB friend had crocheted me a cloche and I love it! Words can’t express, though, how supported I feel from everyone. It’s amazing and wonderful!

You rock and the world rolls with you, and you Totally ROCK!
Ted did good! And you look great in that sweet new cloche. Hoping you’ll be able to eat regular food again soon. XXXO, R
Hi, Caroline –
I just read through your posts and I’m both moved and inspired. Your positive energy and outlook is awesome. I love your GI Jane hair, too — you totally rock the buzz!
P.S. Something fun is waiting for you in your office. A silly little reminder of sorts to keep on your desk over the next few months 🙂
