Whoo Hoo!! Last Wednesday, I finished the Carboplatin and Taxol! Since my body responded so well, I don’t have to make up the one I missed. I am a happy girl right now!
I get this week off, which couldn’t have come at a better time. The last few weeks have been my hardest yet. I have felt every bit like a cancer patient. I have ran fevers and have felt really crummy. I have also been very emotional, which I assume is because I am going through menopause. (A not so lovely side effect from chemotherapy.) Any good days I have, I make sure to enjoy with my family. It’s not easy to have my body feel like this. I can’t even walk to the mailbox without feeling out of breath. Imagine trying to play with a five year old. I keep telling myself this is all temporary and I will feel back to normal one day.
Next Wednesday, I will start my new chemotherapy and I am quite nervous about it. I have heard it is tough. I may even lose my fingernails and toenails. Yikes! The Nuelasta I will take to help my immune system causes even more bone and joint pain. Please continue to keep me in your prayers.
I thought I would celebrate the ending to the first chemotherapy regimen by letting you in on my wig shopping. I completely forgot I promised pictures and I laughed all over again looking back on them. I took my Mom, sisters and niece Candace with me the first time to make sure I picked a good one. That was a pretty hard task as you will see why. I didn’t want to leave my Love out so I had to take him again. I did pick out two wigs, so it was successful. Hope you enjoy!
