H is done with Caelyx.  She's having a week off and will start on Paclitaxel next week.   This will be a weekly treatment with a break every fourth week.  Unless she has a bad reaction to it, in which case we'll consider alternatives - her colleague S, who does a lot of breast cancer treatment, suggests Abraxane as a version of the drug which is less likely to educe an allergic reaction.

One disadvantage is that she may lose her beautiful hair, which is already thinner than it was.  She's philosophical about that, she's had plenty of enjoyment from it already.

Her hands, elbows, knees and feet (which got beaten up by the run) should recover under the new treatment.  We don't know how effective it will be against the disease.
