Hello friends! Just wanted to drop a quick post to let you know how things are going. If you haven’t heard – I have cancer – you can read my full story with updates HERE.
Good news. I had a CT scan and I’m responding well to the treatment. The bad news is I will need 6 treatments – my Dr. said maybe 4 would be enough but now he’s saying 6. Boo. That means an extra 5 – 6 weeks or so spent sick in bed taking me into fall again.
I also had a reaction to the medicine for the scan and was sick for 3 days with major stomachaches. Then I had a reaction to the tape they used for the chemo IV so this red veiny rash was crawling up my arm. Don’t know what’s going on but I never had a reaction to either before.
Mentally, this time around is soooo much harder, I’m not the shining example of positivity I was last summer – I’m feeling angry and annoyed over every little thing. My attitude has just plain sucked. I need an attitude adjustment. Truth.
I do find myself perking up a little knowing that I’m just a little more than halfway through the treatments. . . the end is in sight. Thank God. The struggle is almost over.
Reading all your comments and messages make me feel better! Please keep them coming!
Also, help if you can with my bills on Go Fund Me (click here), still paying them off from last summer, everything helps – big or small – I’m grateful for all.
Thanks for all the neverending support and prayers too! BIG BIG HUGS
