It’s been a few weeks since I had my last chemo. I’m not sure I’ll ever get sick of saying post chemo, I’m done with chemo, oh, I finished chemo a few weeks ago. Feels so good. I’ve been trying to make decisions about surgery and just slowly getting better. I have finally chose my surgeon(that was quite the process and headache) and will meet a plastic surgeon soon to make some more decisions. I have a lot to think about and finalize. Hopefully surgery will be the week after next…I’m still waiting for a final date. I still have to get hormone therapy at the cancer center every 3 weeks until October. There are no side effects to this drug, so it’s ok. And I love the nurses there, so it’s just a time to say hi and thank you. I can say it is a little easier knowing there is no cancer in my body! I’m doing what I can to control that and keep it away.
Everything was going smoothly until this week…first Savanna woke up with a fever and awfully stuffy. I took her the doctor and it is really nothing, just some steroids and fever reducing meds. She is slowly coming around. Tricia has been out of commission in the hospital. They are still figuring out all the details of what’s wrong. Fingers crossed they have it and she comes home tomorrow. Then I caught something and was miserable. I’m so thankful for my mom and mother in law. I didn’t even get this sick on chemo. I guess it’s a different kind of sick though. I could barely stand, let alone take care of an almost 2 year old all day. I’m so grateful that my amazing neighbor happened to be in Walgreens at the same time as me and helped me with Savvy and took care of me. Best neighbor ever award. My mother in law took care of Sav so I could rest, thank you so much! I’m starting to feel a little better but it will take some time to get this one out of my system. Cross your fingers that Justin doesn’t go any farther than sniffles. Ain’t nobody got time fo that.
I plan to just relax and prepare my body and mind this next week for surgery and beyond. It’s exhausting to think about but we will get through it! I have the most amazing support system and grateful for each and every one of you.
