I hope everyone has had a great relaxing Memorial Day weekend!
Wednesday I went in for round 3 of the 4 “red devil” chemo regimen. It was pretty uneventful. Just me and my dad chilling while that nasty stuff goes thru my port.
After chemo day I actually feel really great. Like I said in my post before, they give you steroids in your premeds so I was yet again bouncing off the wall.
Thursday I went to work. Felt great. Then came Friday. I ended up having to go home from work about 30 minutes into my work day. This mentally got to me. I hate missing work. I felt queasy and exhausted so definitely didn’t have much of a choice.
Saturday wasn’t much better. Just laid around and watched another 12 hours of Vanderpump Rules. 🤦🏼♀️ Ray was here to give me plenty of foot rubs and back massages. Something I haven’t talked about yet is the bone pain that comes from the Neulasta shot. This usually happens about 2 days after chemo. It feels kind of like your whole back and spine are bruised. As much as this stinks it’s a good thing. That means the shot is working and is creating white blood cells which is needed for you to be able to complete the next chemo treatment.
Then came Sunday. I started feeling better. Still low energy but better. Was able to take a good shower and wash this hair! Much needed.
And now here we are today. I feel back to normal! Sitting here drinking coffee and getting kitty snuggles which are the best kind of snuggles. 😻
So yes this time the red devil punched me in the face. But it’s ok. I have one more left and then I will begin the weekly taxol which is suppose to be a walk in the park compared to the current regimen I’m on. I’m feeling stronger every day. I can’t believe I’m almost done with the first chemo treatment. It’s going by so fast, which is such a blessing.
I appreciate all of your kind words. It makes my heart happy. I’m a lucky girl.
Hope you all have a great Memorial Day. And remember the reason we have today off.
Until next time…
