This first week of the A/C treatment has been much harder then the taxol. Page has been exhausted much of the week and achy all over. It has also been effecting her emotional state, but she has found ways to deal with that. Hopefully she will adapt to this chemo treatment as it continues.
Friday March 3rd Page stayed in bed exhausted all day. Wednesday March 8th Page had extreme back and bone pains as a result of the Neulasta.

Page's reaction to A/C (a rash all over) was too strong and caused the doctors to decide to cancel today's infusion. The fear was that the reaction, if intensified could have a fatal effect. So instead of continuing with A/C they have scheduled an MRI for later this week to determine the effectiveness of the treatment so far.
MRI at UCSF - We should get the results next Tuesday.
