All roads have bumps, journeys have detours, apples have worms.  Ok, so maybe not all apples have worms.  My journey has had a few bumps.  My pathology report changed from triple negative to HER2 positive when the actual mass was removed and biopsied.  This meant a change in chemo plans. Next, another surgery as I got an infection and had to have the spacer on my right side removed and the cavity cleaned.  So now I have my port a cath installed on my chest (no IV's yay!!) and have healed from all surgeries, and am due to start chemotherapy on Monday, 10/19/15. (TCH+P is the lovely name of my chemo cocktail) I will have treatment every 21 days for 5 months, followed by a year of just the P portion of the cocktail.  I am looking forward to getting this next phase rolling and dreading it at the same time.  If you have any extra positive thoughts, please send them my way.
