If it had been a bad guy inside to rob my house, I was ready to be knocked to the floor.
Perjeta, being brand new off the R&D line, is $10,000 an infusion. Just sayin'.
I got Perjeta and Gemzar on Wednesday and Herceptin on Thursday. So far, I am not feeling any unusual effects. It's the same old, same old. Chemo is chemo.
A friend brought by some delicious food the day of my first gemzar/perjeta cocktail Truthfully, I have no appetite and have no interest in eating, unless somebody brings me something. Then I will eat it. I don't have the feeling of hunger anymore and nothing sounds good enough for me to bother to spend time preparing it - but if it is in front of me, I will eat it and even enjoy it. And, have I enjoyed this food, oh my. One of the items was a mandarin orange caramel cake. Fabulous.
So, we shall see. Maybe my shoulder will get better. Maybe my cancer will go into remission, or at least stay stable. Maybe my dog will stop jumping on people.
One can always hope.
