Aloxi is my friend

It's not like I've felt as "good" as in the first two cycles, but we've managed to avoid the horror of the third cycle, and I'm sure it's thanks to Aloxi, the new anti-nausea drug. Well, that and the acu-stimulant wristband that Rick and Joanie sent me (thanks, guys!!), which got me through a couple of days when I think I'd have had the nausea otherwise.

Supposedly, I get to actually get better now--I'm done with AC, and the Taxol is not supposed to cause nausea. So I am looking forward to a positive trajectory. It's amazing how much hope that provides.
