Hi Everyone! I can't believe I haven't written since August?? What have I been doing?? Well I have to say I have been enjoying my time with Emelia!
But lets start with the cancer stuff. Today I am on my 10th dose of Taxol/Herceptin combo. 2 more to go of taxol. The worse part is how long it takes and that I miss Emelia! The best part is my mom takes me and we have fun talking. She is the best! Never complains and I know how boring it is to just sit there. Thanks mom! Second.. I usually take a little nap while there. The meds make me sleepy! But it's a good time to rest. We haven't brought Emelia yet because it's too long of a day. But we will in November when it's only 1.5 hours instead of 4. As for side effects... I am handling the chemo pretty well. I have some tingling in my feet , usually at night when I'm in bed is when i notice it. But it doesn't bother me too much. My hair just recently started to fall out again.. little at a time. It was growing for a while! 2 weeks ago or so i had the worse side effect! My taste buds changed and a great red wine tasted horrible!! But i have found some cheaper ones that taste good. So i'm ok!
The plan for the next few months... 2 more doses of taxol/herceptin. And then i switch to every 3 weeks of herceptin only. That will go until August 2011. Long way away.. In december I will have the mastectomy. Which i have accepted but still not ready for. I just hate that I have to lose my breast. I think it's harder to accept because I dont feel sick or feel like i have this deadly disease. But I do. So I will.
I think I will have a Bye Bye Boobie party in early december to help deal with the surgery! A lot of women do a party before the mastectomy and since I love to throw parties.. why not! You know I can make it a fun time.. Boobs is a great theme!
Ok next post will be about Babies!!
