It’s Monday and I’m feeling good! I did round 11 of Taxol Friday. I go in this Friday for round 12, the last one! I remember the day my oncologist told me I was going to do 12 rounds of Taxol. I was devastated! Twelve more weeks of chemo! How was I going to make it through that!? Well, I did it! One more round to go! The inner strength you find when dealing with something like cancer is amazing! The strength and love that the people in your life give you is also amazing. I couldn’t have made it through this part of my journey without all the support I’ve had. I have to say thank you to my sweet Javiee for taking such good care of me. For working all day and coming home to make me yummy dinners and yucky juices! For telling me I’m beautiful when I just don’t feel beautiful! He is always there for me, he’s my rock and I couldn’t do this without him! My kiddos have also been so strong. How unfair is it that they have to deal with this!! They also give me strength. I fight for them! To all my family that came a thousand miles to visit me ( Daddy, Joyce, Laura, Betty, Diane, Danny & Patsy) Thank you! It was so good to have company, even when I was feeling my worst! To all my family at Denny’s, Arvin’s and Noah’s Ark, you guys have made this horrible time so much easier for us! For that my family thanks you! We love you all! Then there’s my mama who has been with me every step of the way. She took so much time off work to be at my many appointments. I couldn’t imagine having done this without her! I am thankful to have such a great support system! I am a long way from home, so I know a lot of you can’t visit and you follow me on my blog or my facebook. Thank you guys for all your support! It means so much! You encourage me daily!
As far as my treatment goes, I will do my last round of Taxol this Friday. The following week I will have another PET scan. That will show us if the past five months of chemo has gotten this cancer under control. The results of the PET scan will decide my future treatment plan. For now, I’m just praying for good scans!
On a happy note, my son, Kori, turned 21 this week! 21! He’s making me old! Happy Birthday Kori! I love you with all my heart!
That’s my oldest, Kori. Happy Birthday Kori! I love you!!!
Sweet post and dedication to those in your life that have helped you. Wow 12 rounds of taxol. That is tough. Did you also do AC? But you did it!!! That’s inspiring!!!
I did four round of AC and then 12 rounds Taxol. I thought I would never get through it. Seems like I started yesterday. Time flies!
