Just not feeling better – complications from my medicines – and it’s back to chemo tomorrow. and that means I need blood taken today. Hope it is up to chemo standards – I don’t want to wait to get better. One more round of chemo and some infusions for my bones stand on the horizon. Haven’t made up my mind about the infusions, but I am doing the chemo as an extra insurance against the cancer coming back.
Then maybe I can get my hair back – well, it’s fuzz right now – but one more round of chemo will take care of that growth. Then it’s on to living my life. Being sick has changed my taste buds – food does not taste the same – can’t get the satisfaction I used to get by eating. And the pills don’t make it easier, either. Enough about the big C.
I want to thank ALL of you who made my holiday feel more merry. I received a lot of cards AND some presents – knowing just what I like – friends gave me art supplies!! I also indulged in some handmade holiday cookies – thanks, Marci! Mike gave a display case from IKEA that I had my eye on – it looks great in the dining room.
I thank everyone got making this holiday bearable. I’ll be working on getting my “mojo” back this year – art, music – and giving back to the people who helped me and to people who are not as fortunate as I am. and believe me, I know how lucky I am.
