No, but I just got the all clear. Daughter doesn't know what happened yet. The automatic emergency calls go to my home phone, not work. But at least I'm close to her school if she needs me. Whew. I hate when this happens.

Oh, shit. Just got a text from my daughter that they are on lockdown at her middle school.

Lupita's dress was my absolute favorite. She has the perfect body for that dress, and was so lovely in it. A gracious and deserving winner!

There are a lot of Vines out there like this. My daughter thought it would be funny to walk out of her room like that (in my hoodie). The dogs did not find it humorous at all, and she has not done it since.

Thanks, I am. I'm glad that I don't have to shovel snow this winter like so many other folks here on CT. Our winter has been cold and dry. This was just the cherry on top of a cold, gray week.

The hot flashes were really bad, and yes, insomnia too. It also reacted poorly with another med that I have to take, so I basically felt crappy all of the time. The interaction of the meds made me extremely fatigued all of the time, and no amount of sleep was enough. I could fall asleep at the drop of a hat, any time of day, and never felt quite awake. It got to the point I was very concerned about driving myself anywhere, and I didn't want to feel disabled in that way. The hot flashes came with dripping sweat, and it feels like you are the only person in the room inside an oven. If I didn't have that med interaction, I think I would still have to take it. Has your partner talked to her oncologist about taking anything to relieve her symptoms? Not everyone is able to take Tamoxifen long term.
