So, they say I'm done with the hard stuff now. Tuesday was my last Cytoxan and Adriamycin treatment and Wednesday was my last Neulasta shot! Yay!!!! Wednesday I was feeling pretty good, I was suprised at how good I was feeling actually. Thankfully because it was Landon's birthday and I didn't want to be tired or sick for that! Thursday I started to feel not so good. Very tired and a little achy. We tried to go swimming, actually we did go swimming, but it was pretty chilly so I never really went in. The kids had a great time though! Elliot showed Kate how he puts his head in the water now, Bailey swam like a fish and jumped in about 100 times and Lila, well, she's not scared of ANYTHING. The girl just keeps dunking her face in, over and over and over!
Thursday night wasn't so great, I started getting very achy, lucky for me I have an incredibly husband that loves me and didn't mind that I laid in bed or on the couch for quite a while! Today, just a little nausea, but if I could possibly eat something I'm sure it would go away. It's a vicious cycle. Nothing sounds good, but I won't feel better until I eat something.
My white blood counts were low this past treatment, they proceeded with the treatment anyway, but now I have a cold. Summer colds are the worst. Blech!
Next week I have a week "off", no chemo (and my last day of physical therapy), the following week I start Herceptin and Taxol weekly. After 12 weeks I continue the Herceptin on a 3 week rotation for a total of one year. So, while I've made it through 8 weeks and 4 treatments, there is still a LONG WAY TO GO. Lot's more to look forward to!
This weekend we have some day trips planned, the weather is supposed to be HOT, perfect days to be at the beach! I hope you all enjoy your weekend, celebrating independence day, stay safe and stay cool!
