I know I haven’t posted in awhile. Sorry -not sorry! I sooo enjoyed my little break from chemo. That time certainly went quick.
Last Thursday was my first of twelve Taxol treatments. As usual it seems I had a little reaction that made them slow it down. I wasn’t there as long as normal but still 6 hours. At least they weren’t cleaning rooms since I wasn’t the last one to leave. This time someone else was the last lol
I felt sooo good on Friday that I thought this round isn’t going to be as bad as the first four. By last night (Sunday) I was thinking I’d take the Neulesta injection any day over Taxol. My bones hurt soooo bad – much worse than they ever did before. But a good pain pill and a hot bath (as hot as I could stand it) made me feel much better. I was worried I wouldn’t sleep but I did. Winner Winner chicken dinner!!!!!
Today hasn’t been too bad but I did take a pain pill at lunch. I decided I was gonna try to stay ahead of the pain. Jackye and I ran to Lexington- retail therapy always makes you feel better. That and a little Crank and Boom Ice Cream! It’s a good thing there isn’t one in Frankfort or I’d be as big as a barn!!!
I’d like to thank my “chemo party girls” for being there last week (Kim, Lady Di and Jackye). We were once again called the party room. Nothing stops us from having fun!
To all my other peeps – thanks sooo much for the cards, text, messages, gifts and food! I am sooo blessed to have so many caring people in my life.
If you are friends with me on fb then you probably already know I’m returning to work at SOKY two days a week. I’m sooo excited.
I hope you all have a great week and may God Bless each and every one of you!
Always remember you are
Braver than you believe.
Stronger than you seem.
Smarter than you think and
Loved more than you know.
Till next time,
