Infusion Day

Now that I’m a hair less exhausted and might be able to construct a legible sentence or two, I thought I’d share how my infusion day went. Because of the length of time the treatment takes, I have to be to the doctor’s office by 8:30 AM which means leaving the house around 7:30 … just in case I run … Read More

Unexpected Infusion

I am getting to this post a little late because things happened fairly quickly and I have been on the tired side of late — kind of like the kitten passed out in the picture. After my latest cold, which took a few weeks to get rid of, I went back on my chemo treatment and when I went to … Read More

The Eyes Have it

I can’t believe it’s Thursday all ready. Did someone put this week on fast forward?

Cycle 5, Day 1 – Chemo

Cycle 4, Day 3 – Hydration

My Status: Two-thirds of the way through
Mood: Meditative
I’m going to start off with the MOST positive thing to come out of today … I am 66%, aka two-thirds, aka YAHOO….

The Aftermath

My Status: Headache-y
Mood: Cranky

Cycle 3, Day 1 – Chemo

My Status: Mush-Brained
Mood: Good
My brain is mush… seriously, it feels numb. So please forgive any typos or nonsense sentences in the following.

Life Beyond Normal

My Status: Headache ascendant
Mood: Philosophical
I love the holiday season and all of the festive atmosphere, the twinkling lights, the songs, decorating, and most importantly cherishing time spent with family and friends…

Cycle 2, Day 3 – Hydration

My Status: Feeling okay
Mood: Good mood in progress
Today was pretty smooth, only 4 hours (supposedly 3 hours per my scheduled times, but we’ve had to throw the general time frames out with me).

Cycle 2, Day 2 – Chemo

My Status: Tired
Mood: Doing better
Another long one today, although we did manage to skip the whole allergic reaction thing. That is a huge positive.

Cycle 2, Day 1 Chemo

My Status: Head-achy & slightly nauseous
Mood: Hanging in there
Today was long. Reeeeaaaallllly long. For a lot of reasons. Where do I start?
