Easy Street........Ü

I had my 6th chemo treatment this past Tuesday and Dr. Serious did up my pain meds this time around....what a difference a few milligrams make! Besides from making me nap just a lil more, you can't even tell when a pain is flashing through me this time around......VIVA LA PAIN MEDS! lol lol lol If I can make it through my last two chemo's feeling this good I am home free and very thankful!

The weird thing is that when I was doing the 1st 4 parts of treatment (The A/C) I was nauseous but never did get sick to my stomach........on the Taxol I'm not nauseous but I was sick to my stomach 2 times Thursday night and 2 times Friday.....just a quick twist in my stomach and fast hobble to the bathroom and it's over and done......so far so good, see getting sick to my stomach is dangerous for me, even on a normal B.C. day (before cancer) My heart tends to go into A-Fib after I get sick to my stomach when I am battling a migraine....and I have had more than my normal share of migraines since diagnosis.........go figure! lol So every time I do get sick to my stomach Jim has to listen to my heart just to make sure I am not in A-Fib and then off and running to the Heart Hospital for a few days stay........me and my odd lil quirks huh?? lol

The bone pain did shift this time though.....last time it was my hips and my thighs.....this time it was my pelvic bone and my rib cage mainly.....it hurt to sneeze, burp, cough, laugh and just breath deep....so if I keep the pain under control with a pain med every 6 hours and I am basically pain free this time around....thank you! thank you! thank you! Good Lord I feel so good I am even doing.................GULP! LAUNDRY! must be a side effect! lol lol lol...............MEDIC!!!!!!!!!!


Life is good and I am blessed!

You are SO funny!!!  It makes me feet better every time I read your journal because I realise that no matter what happens to us, it's up to us to make the best of that situation. We can choose whether to accept it, or not. We can choose whether or not to moan and groan about the bad hand we've been dealt, or whether to fight on and make sure that we enjoy what we have. Thank you for helping us all want to enjoy life for what it is, no matter how bad it can be.  We love you!  Caroline

It's wonderful to hear you're doing better.  I can't wait for all of this to be past you....and a distant memory.

Take Care,

You forgot to ask for the anti-housework pill.  But at least you got some goooooood drugs!  That's wonderful.  You'll be done before you know it!
