I have good and bad news!
The good being I’m done with my chemo treatments! Six total. The last one being the absolute worst.
I thought I was never going to feel better – agonizing stomach pain for weeks on end and complete and utter exhaustion that is still hanging on. Plus a multitude of other side effects I won’t wax poetic on.
Instead of sleeping 14 – 16 hours a day I’m down to 10 – 11. But I’m still tired. I thought I would be up and bouncing around with energy after it was over but I’m butt-whooped.
Here’s the bad – I don’t know if my cancer is wiped out completely because I was denied a CT scan last week.
They waited until the morning of the test to call and tell me they needed full payment – 4,000+ dollars ahead of time.
Boo on them.
Do you want to hear something else messed up?
My Dr. is certain the cancer is going to return – if it’s even gone – because of how much it spread – and he never lets me forget it.
Maybe he wants me to be mentally prepared but what he doesn’t know is I’m a rebel through and through.
Every time he says it my resolve grows stronger and stronger. Every fiber of my being wants to prove him wrong. I’ll show him. Make him eat his words. Because it is not coming back. Ever.
More good news. . .
My hair is growing back and it’s white-blonde! I love it.
And I’m going to be around for another Christmas season – my favorite time of the year!
Six months ago I was knocking on heaven’s door and now. . .
I can’t wait for the first snow. I can’t wait to wake up on Christmas morning with my family. I get to wear the new boots I bought last year and the scarf my Mom made me. Decorate the tree and sing Christmas songs. Bake cookies. Watch Buddy the Elf for the umpteenth time. Then there’s the Bumble, you know from Rudolph? I love that creature.
I’m sitting here grateful. Counting my blessings every single day. Thanking God and the Universe and all of you too!
I’ll update again when I have my CT scan.
