Either Xeloda isn’t nearly as tough on the system as the IV chemotherapy was, or I’m a whole lot stronger this time around.  I am admittedly tired, but I feel realllllly good.  And strong.  And still up, working, at 10 p.m.

I’m pretty proud of the work too.  Check out what I’ve been doing over at Women in Planetary Science if you’ve got a sec …. we had a great feature on a science blogger who I think is amazingly cool, and we’re continuing to feature interviews with two women a week who are working in the field of planetary science, on missions, as professors, at observatories … it’s always something new!

    Or both? This news makes me so happy! (Seriously, I think you’re stronger than I am, if you’re still working at 10pm. I’ve usually crashed out well before then!)

    I’m so glad to hear you’re doing well. I did Xeloda with Ixempra (an IV chemo) and, other than some digestive issues, didn’t have too much trouble with it.
