Hello to all family and friends. It's been almost a week since my last treatment and I'm finally feeling almost human again. Boy this Taxol is some really mean stuff. It beats you to the ground and then backs over you with a semi truck. I don't know how someone that's really elderly and frail could tolerate going through this treatment, my heart really goes out to them.
Now the good news..... only ONE MORE treatment. Mark your calendars..... "Wednesday, April 13th"... everyone say a little prayer thanking God for getting me through this nightmare. The really crazy thing is, although I'm very excited about being through with chemo, I'm also very nervous and uneasy at the same time. That sounds nuts, I know. While this "poison" makes me sick, at least I feel protected knowing it's killing the cancer. I can't seem to shake the feeling that this evil stuff is going to come back. I guess that's normal and will get better with time, but I'm so nervous......and for those that know me, I'm not the nervous-nellie type. I really even had second thoughts about writing about these feelings but they're there and are real. I'm going to work extra hard at cherishing my accomplishments and many blessings. Please pray God rains peace over me.
I'm not sure what the plans are after chemo is over, I guess we'll discuss that at my last treatment. I have been advised to keep my infusion port for at least 6 months, "just in case". That kind of makes your heart sink but I'll take their advice and keep it. I'm looking forward to warm weather, bike riding, motorcycle riding, long walks, gardening, fishing and HAIR, lol.
I hope this finds all of you happy and healthy. Love to all and until next time God bless.
