Re: [MOL]Kathy



Suzanne, Darling:  I am so, so sorry to hear that you're having so much
trouble.  I wish I could breathe for you!  No wonder you're feeling lousy!
I thought I had it bad when I was on my chemo!  I had a fraction of the
problems you've had, and the Taxol worked for me.  Please keep in touch with
us.  We're all concerned about you.  -- Kathy in Boise
