Echo time

Well, it's been three months, so it is time to have another echocardiogram.
Since the targeted therapy (not chemo) drug Herceptin is considered a cardiotoxin, it could damage my heart so I must have it checked every three months for the duration of a year of therapy with this drug.
Please pray that my heart is as "pretty" as the technologist said it was three months ago....if not, then they will have to stop giving it to me, and the chance of the cancer returning will greatly increase! So it is very important that we continue this therapy, and that my heart stays healthy.
I will end this post here, since I must be on my way...But I will be sure to return with an update ASAP.
As usual, thank you for your continued prayers, and know that I am praying for you all as well, my friends.
~Blessings & Love~
and remember, we are...

God Bless you my dear friend. I'm still sending prayers for you an dthink of you often. Thank you so much for the sweet words on mine and taking time to visit. I'm going to see the specialist this week and maybe start getting to the bottom of whatever it is that has its grips on me. But I think about you and the things you've went through. God always reminds me there's people going through alot worse. You'll always be in my prayers and I hope this finds you having a better day. Hugs and love, xo
