Hello friends! Thanks for all the sweet messages, prayers and donations! Your support has meant the world to me. 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.
It’s been such a long road. The second full summer in a row I spent in chemotherapy and sick in bed for almost 5 months. It’s been hell. I’m not gonna lie. Chemotherapy is tough. One of the hardest things I ever had to do. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, not even my worst enemy.
This time around I knew what to expect so I’ve just been hunkering down and getting through it by watching a lot of Netflix, reading a bunch of good books and spending a lot of time on Pinterest drooling over all the food I want to make and eat when I feel better.
The last few weeks have been even harder for me because I developed anemia from the treatments which has left me so weak that just walking to the kitchen has me huffing and puffing for air and needing to sit down. This week I go for a shot that will boost my red blood cells but will take a while to work so recuperating is going to be slower than usual. This has just compounded all my chemo side effects. So, yes, it’s been more hellish than usual. But I’ll get through it. I always do.
Reading all your comments and messages helps! I go back and read every single one from time to time and cherish them all. They helped me then and they’re still helping me now!
Please help if you can on Go Fund Me (click here), still paying off very large bills, everything helps – big or small donations – I’m so appreciative of them all.
Thanks for all the neverending support and prayers too! BIG GIANT HUGS
