We did it. Thanks to the week off, my counts were better and the pain was gone, and I was hooked up for chemotherapy today. The day was oddly routine, and I’m at home recovering now. So far, so good. And best of all, we have only TWO chemo dates remaining. As long as we keep the neuropathy minimal, I can finish treatment December 27 and proceed to surgery in early to mid January.
In other words ….
P.S. J.M. Tewkesbury, a new reader who found me through DC Blogs Noted, has started a Holiday Party Meme based on her comment here earlier this week that ends in the donation of $5/post, up to $100, to a cancer foundation chosen by little ol’ me. Debi at 2 Things and Photo a Day is going to match that donation for qualifying posts. Wow! What do you think, gals, should it be the Young Survival Coalition, Inflammatory Breast Cancer Foundation, Headhuggers.org, or something else? YSC and IBCF would use the money to spread awareness. Headhuggers would use it for postage to mail the chemo caps handknitted by volunteers to cancer patients. I’d love to hear what you think, since we’re doing this together ….
