Once again my chemo had to be postponed because of low platelets (sigh). I did get a dose of herceptin, but the other two chemo drugs were postponed till Wednesday. It’s frustrating to get psyched up for this and then have to wait.
I met with my oncologist this morning. I will have 6 chemo sessions. So after this next chemo I’ll be halfway through. Yippie! So I’ll finish chemo in early June and the mastectomies will happen in late June followed by 6 weeks of radiation every day and herceptin for a year every week.
I had a great trip to Atlanta to visit my sister and her family. It was 70 and sunny! It was a lot of driving…..but Elijah and the girls did well. The girls stayed in Kentucky with their grandma and grandpa for the week. I felt a little like I was escaping cancer for the week. Driving back was a bit difficult knowing what was awaiting me…..and now I wait till Wednesday.
Thanks for all your prayers and little notes of encouragement. Even strangers when I’m out in public have even started coming up to me and giving me little hugs and words of encouragement. That’s nice. So many people have experienced someone they love struggle with cancer. It’s a tough thing. It reminds me there are so many people who care.
