Last week completed my third of four chemo treatments, so I’m 75% of the way done! One more in two weeks and then I can hopefully, forever, close this chemo chapter of my life.
Not gonna lie to you…it’s been getting worse and worse with each treatment. The hair loss seems to have stabilized, and is starting to grow back in, which, to be honest, I was enjoying it being gone! But, everything else gets worse with each treatment. The fatigue, lack of energy, shaky muscles, and dark places my mind ends up continue to get the best of me during treatment week and the 4-5 days after the last infusion. To be blunt, it completely, totally sucks, and I’m tired of the toll it’s taking on my mind, body and family. I would not wish this on anybody, ever.
Today I’m feeling like I’m starting to recover from the infusion finally, so that’s keeping me a bit optimistic. We’ll get this last one done at the end of May, and move on…to radiation! Fortunately, I’m told it’s nothing like chemo. Let’s hope.
I hope everybody has a great week…thank you for the continued prayers, thoughts and support…and I’ll let you know how things progress!
