Taxol Treatments

July 17th, 2019

Mood: Stressed 😧

I have to admit, I am nervous about my first Taxol treatment tomorrow. I am praying that it will be as easy as my oncologist says it will be.

The thought of another 12 treatments is daunting and depressing but I understand that it is necessary. We have to do everything possible to make sure that I don’t have cancer anywhere else in my body.

I am doing everything my oncologist is telling me to do so that I don’t have any major side effects and so far it helped a lot during the first part of my treatment.

Fighting Fatigue

July 12th, 2019

Mood: Frustrated 😥

This last week was pretty rough on me…..my fatigue was pretty bad and I was getting a lot of headaches. I finally turned a corner yesterday and I am feeling much better now.

I have been wanting to update my blog but I have simply not had the energy to work on it. I am still working full time, thankfully from home, so after after working a full day and doing a few things around the house I have been exhausted in the evenings. I am praying that the fatigue really will get better once I am on the new chemo drug which I will start on next Thursday.

Hope you all are having a great weekend! 💕

Blood Tests

July 11th, 2019

Mood: Hopeful 😌

My probiotics are working! I started taking probiotics daily after my White Blood Cell count was so low a month ago and two weeks ago my WBC was almost normal and today it was normal!

I was talking to the tech about my fatigue and once we had the results back he pointed out a few numbers to me and said “that’s why you are so tired!” Nothing terrible in my numbers as it is to be expected at this point.

Hopefully my next phase of treatment will prove to help my fatigue get a lot better as my oncologist stated….fingers crossed!

Exhausted

July 7th, 2019

Mood: Exhausted 😫

Matt & I went to our favorite park this morning and walked 1.75 miles in about 34 minutes…it was exhausting for me, but it felt good at the same time. I am very happy that we went while I felt like I had the energy and it definitely showed me that I have a bit of work to do to get back to where I was last Fall. I will get there, not pushing it just little by little.

Bone pain is starting to flare up from my Neulasta injection last night so I am resting tonight. I will get some more blog entries caught up when I can, too tired tonight.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy long weekend!! Love to you all! 💕

Good News

July 6th, 2019

Mood: Excited 😄

Out and about with sweetie! I got some good news from my oncologist yesterday….this is my last Neulasta shot, no more bone pain….yay!

A few treatments in with Taxol my fatigue should disappear as well and Taxol will not effect my White Blood Cell count! I will still need to be cautious but I can resume a normal life for the most part…double yay!!
