Update

My mom is doing really well. She went to her surgeon yesterday and got cleared for physical activity and prescribed some physical therapy to help her get her arms limbered up again after the surgery. They invited her to participate in a phase III clinical trial. You can read the description of the study at

http://www.cancer.gov/search/ViewClinicalTrials.aspx?cdrid=334899&version=healthprofessional
or

http://www.ctsu.org/ and search for breast cancer trials
The study is called...
Phase III Trial of Continuous Schedule AC + G Vs. Q 2 Week Schedule AC, Followed by Paclitaxel Given Either Every 2 Weeks or Weekly for 12 Weeks as Post-Operative Adjuvant Therapy in Node-Positive or High- Risk Node Negative Breast Cancer.

We haven't decided for sure yet if she is going to participate, but think that she probably will.

I've had a TON of class work to take care of this week and I'm hoping to be pretty much caught up with my work by tomorrow.
