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!!

3rd Chemo Treatment

June 20th, 2019

Mood: Normal 🙂

I had my 3rd chemo treatment today. They had a problem with my port but after letting some liquid sit in the line for about 30 minutes they were finally able to start my treatment.

I decided to be super brave and wear a wig to my treatment today….

Blood Tests

June 13th. 2019

Mood: Normal 🙂

Hi! I am still feeling good since my last treatment a week ago! I have had a little fatigue but nothing terrible.

I went to my oncologists office this morning for bloodwork. A few things are low, mainly my white blood cell count so she suggested that I wash my hands more and wear a mask if I am in a store. I won’t wear a mask in public so that answers that problem.

Shaving My Head

June 9th, 2019

Mood: Sad 😭

My sweet, amazing husband shaved my head this morning. I knew it was time when I woke up because the hair on the back of my head was hurting. I don’t know how else to describe it…

I couldn’t watch while he was shaving my head and I haven’t been able to bring myself to look in a mirror yet. We agreed that other than my first surgery, this has been the most difficult and traumatic step of my journey.

I am numb but OK…

More Hair Loss

June 8th, 2019

Mood: Sad 😢

Even more hair fell out today. I have a feeling that it won’t be long now until I have Matt shave my head. This is heartbreaking to say the least, but it does mean the chemo is working, so I need to hold onto that! 😔

Cut & Donated Hair

May 11th, 2019

Mood: Sad 😭

I had my hair cut today…..8 inches taken off. It was enough to donate so that made me feel good that I could do that for someone, but it was an understandably traumatic experience. I know that when my hair starts falling out later I will be happy that I took this step but it it doesn’t feel that way right now.
