The time has finally come for me to start round 5. That means I will go back weekly for chemo instead of every 2 weeks and I will see the doctor every 3 weeks! Things are going great! I am excited to know that I only have 12 more rounds to go and then I start radiation therapy. The combination of chemo and radiation is to make sure all of the cancer is DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!!!!!!!
I also get to go back to work this week! No more sitting around looking at the same 4 walls day in and day out! I have missed my co-workers, patients and the doctors. This is a big milestone for me. I am excited and scared all in the same breath. I hope I haven't forgotten everything I've learned about wound care.
I had to go for IV fluids twice after the last round because it really knocked me for a loop. I didn't really start feeling like myself until Monday. I actually felt good enough to help one of my neighbors put a laminate floor in my dining room. Now, mind you..... I've had the flooring in my house since this past summer! It took an afternoon to put in, but it looks awesome! I think I have the best neighbors in the world!
I hope everyone has a fantabulous week and DON'T FORGET TO FEEL YOUR BOOBIES!!! Only you know what is normal for you! Don't forget your mammograms and annual exams that we women must have done.
Love to all,
