Sorry I have been MIA for a while...nothing dramatic going on, just life.
We did change chemo to eribulin. I've had two injections, so far fatigue is the worst. I sleep an extra 5-6 hours on the days following the injections. I was surprised to find that it is just a small vial of medicine, not a bag and hours of IV drip. I spend most of my time waiting for the pharmacy to mix the meds. It's too early to tell if it's working...putting out my good mojo for that.
I did have another blood transfusion (low red blood cells) and I'm on magnesium now because it's low too. We watch both those closely with weekly blood tests, even when it's not a chemo week.
My new kitten, Annie, has made a big difference. When she's awake, she is fiesty and fearless. Then she gets tired and literally falls over, a minute later she is asleep. She has already doubled in size in the month we've had her...love that girl!
Gotta go, open house at my daughter's school tonight. I love you guys. Thank you for being here for me through thick and thin.
