herceptin today, gone tommorrow...

today is trish's last herceptin infusion!!!

on 5/20/2008, trish began her year long course of herceptin treatments, and today, 365 days later, she is taking her final exam.

we arrived at the stanford cancer center at 9:15am, and got settled into the almost window seat of B6. her typical trifecta of premeds (benadryl, pepcid and decadron) will be dripping soon.

trish has really built up a nice friendship with a lot of the nurses in the infusion treatment area, so she decided to bake her butt off last night and bring in a huge basket of goodies... peanut butter bars, wine cake, brownies, cupcakes and cookies.

so... aside from a little bit of a cold over the weekend, trish's is doing really, really well.

trisha held a fundraiser last friday night for the 3 Day Walk and raised a few hundred dollars towards her fund raising goal.
SF 3Day

the 2009 San Francisco Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk will be he held October 2 - 4, 2009

trish's is currently at 25% of her personal fund raising goal of $3000

as a team, the 13 ladies on Trisha's Trailblazers have raised over $7000 so far this year.

if you are interested in joining trish and the rest of the girls in this years walk, please contact Trisha to find out how you can register, its not too late.

if you would like to help in trisha's fund raising efforts, donations can be made through trisha's personal 3 Day page

well, its a another great day here. another milestone reached. another step closer to normalcy.

congrats trish, i love you.

thanks all for checking in, and the support you have given us over the past year
