Today will be my #3 chemotherapy treatment. Somebody asked me last night if I have anxiety before each treatment. The answer: Absolutely NOT. In fact, last treatment I explained to the nurse that I wanted every drop of chemo in that bag. “Don’t leave one drop in there. I want ALL OF IT inside my body.”
I’m sure I’ll be on the same regime – chemo today, followed by three days of mostly sleep. After doing some research last night, it appears that the more treatments you receive, the more tired your body becomes. If I struggle with anything throughout this cancer journey, it’s the constant exhaustion. It doesn’t work well with my normal routine. But it’s temporary and I will be patient.
Here’s to three down, five more to go before surgery. I think we’re making huge progress. I can feel it in my bones and in my heart and in my soul. Thank you friends for sharing your encouraging spirit with me.
