I am trying to play catch up right now! I have had company at my house since October 7th and tried to spend time with them rather than being on my computer too much, so I am behind in everything….blogging, work…life in general. However, I will blog it all out, just not all right at once. I wanted to put up my chemo treatment from this past Thursday, October 22nd. It was a big one…Doxil round #8, my bone medication infusion, Zometa, the IV steriods and anti-emetics, and then a flu shot to top it all off. It was 4 hours but no real side effects other than being a little tired that afternoon. Having company to occupy your mind is helpful! I had a few blisters on my feet this round, so I am starting to get toxic again…but it wasn’t too bad and there was no rash, which is so much harder to deal with. I will be having a echocardiogram on Monday morning to check the status of my heart, as doxil tends to do heart damage along the way if not carefully monitored. I made it to my first HUGE goal since being diagnosed and that was the wedding of my son and daughter-in-law. That will be a separate post (or 4) as it was a wonderful time had by all. Made the top five days of my life.
