August 22

Well, today is the first Friday I won’t have chemo based on my chemo schedule. Yeah!!!

I have been doing okay the last couple of weeks. I still don’t have very much energy and feel pretty pathetic when it comes to my strength. I am, however, doing well and looking forward to feeling better in the coming days.

I have an appointment with my Radiation Oncologist next Friday. I will have my schedule for radiation from that appointment. I will also be having a mammogram the first week of September. I feel like everything will be okay and I will be cured of this nasty cancer.

I have been amazed at how many people I have heard about having cancer in the last couple of months. I am sure that it is because of my situation, but so many people have loved ones or friends that are going through their own trials. In fact, our sweet friend Betsey Berge could sure use our prayers as her Mother has just been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.

I feel so blessed to have been able to catch my cancer in the early stages and have done as well as I have through my treatment so far. So many suffer much more than I have and my heart really goes out to them.

My nose is still running and I keep feeling like I might be fighting a summer cold or sinus thing. I have no idea what is going on with that. I can’t wait until I can stop using box upon box of tissue. I literally dripped a couple of times on some printer proofs I was going over the other day right in front of my vendor and co-worker. It’s so annoying.

No hair, anywhere. But, I have been assured that over the next 4 – 6 weeks, I should see some results. It will be interesting to see the color and texture it will come back in as.

Thanks again to all of you for your love and support. You have made the last few months much easier for me to get through.
