Friday again, chemo day. TGIF doesn’t pertain to me anymore! It’s more like TGIM! By Monday I’m usually over the bone pain and leg cramps that seem to get worse with each round of Taxol. No, Friday is not what it used to be!
On the bright side I can say after this round I have 4 more to go! Does that mean after 4 more rounds I am done with chemo? Your guess is as good as mine. This cancer inside of me seems to be the deciding factor. For now my tumor markers are down and that gives me hope that my Fridays in the chemo chair will soon come to an end.
I had a lady come up to me this week at Natural Grocers. I wonder how she knew I had cancer, could it have been my bald head or my lack of boobs?? She told me to stay strong. She battled cancer two years ago and there would come a day when I would wake up and not think of cancer. I thanked her for her kind words. After all, she was only trying to be an inspiration to me. Little did she know, I’m stage 4 and not a day will go by when the thought of cancer is not lingering in the air. I had an emotional breakdown once we made it to the car. How nice would it be to actually entertain the thought of not having to think of cancer!? Unfortunately, that is not a luxury you have when your stage 4.
On a happy note…I had pizza this week! My Javiee is the best! You all know my diet is very strict! Javiee found the perfect pizza recipe. Of course he didn’t use white flour, it had 2 grams of sugar in it! He used wheat flour and made his sauce from scratch. It was yummy!! I am a lucky woman to have such a great man to help me through this! I am blessed!
Here’s a picture of my pizza!
