Re: [MOL] Taxol,



Hi, Chris:  I got six months of chemo.  It isn't unusual at all.  My first
chemo was in early December of 1997, and my last one was in the middle of
May 1998.  It's true -- you DO feel like you're going to die at times, and
just as you start to feel halfway human, they sock it to you again!!  One
good thing, though -- only one more month!  I can remember how ecstatic I
was when I realized I only had to go through it for one more month!  He's
come this far, Chris.  He'll make it now!  Love, Kathy C.
