I have just survived my 4th of 6 rounds of cvp-r treatments and glad to report that I am still feelin funky.
I have been soooooo blessed, but anyone that has taken prednisone at sky high levels knows this cancer crap will kick your butt one way or another. I have gained over 20lbs and am praying for that weightloss symptom to kick in . I made it through childbirth unscathed and without donning stretch marks only to get a disease that is trying to kill me(which I out smarted) only to have these nasty tasting lil pills keep me up all night and eating every 20 minutes.
I hope this post finds everyone in good health
I truly feel like I am kicking Cancer's ass !!! I know that this is a disease that will try to comeback with a vengence, but I am ready to continue to fight like "you know what"...lol...only one swear per day
Sue you were right, it's almost over already. I am kinda starting to feel the saddness of not going for treatments and seeing my amazing staff that has given me an opportunity to have a much longer, healthier life. I can see how people could go through depression when it's over, but I haven't been lucky enough to get sympathy or pampering. My friends and family feel that I am fine and always have been, because I have never appeared sick. I did let them all know in the beginning that this was my fight and I had to stand up and fight it, maybe that's what led them to believe I didn't want pampering.....either way fighting is hard work and calls for wine and a bubble bath sometimes!
I am looking forward to camping out under the stars with my son to see the SuperMoon this sunday, check it out it is supposed to be pretty cool. Plus side is it has nothing to do with being sick or feeling bad, you can still look at that moon. If you are on prednisone like me, you can catch the sun coming up also perhaps with a snack in between!
Dang it... I almost forgot to tell you about the awesomeness of being at chemo and having the county cop come and fill out a police report for me...somebody stole my identity and half of my freaking bank account...now what kind of monster steals $ from a single mom with cancer???geesh, if you are going to steal my identity atleast pay my bills, while you are paying you AT&T and Sprint bills..Is that too much to ask? lol...it only happens to me
my love to you all
