I slept great last night. Woke every 4 hours to take meds but went right back to sleep. I wrote the day 30 & 31 blog but didn’t publish them to the meggs fight fb page on purpose. I didn’t want to alarm the masses and felt like I needed a another day on thisContinue reading “Day 32. Sleep is mine!”
Last time I was here chemo had just been added back. I knew it was going to be a rough week. I didn’t know how quickly -rough – was going to show up. In anticipation we ditched the Tramadol for Oxy. Monday evening I basically did not sleep. I could not get comfortable at allContinue reading “Day 30 & 31 Rough”
9 days of radiation to go. Single digits. Can y’all believe that? 5 days of chemo! I’m so close to end of treatment. I will still be seen for several weeks beyond treatment because radiation is cumulative and stays with me for awhile. FYI Today was long start to finish. We started at 9am andContinue reading “Day 29- Week 5 The beginning of the conclusion (also a picture dump)”
Friday I closed the door on week 4. Tomorrow, Monday, I start week 5. I also start round 2 of chemo tomorrow. It will be a long day. A long week. Round 1 of Chemo I didn’t really have radiation side effects yet so this will likely be the roughest week. On the flip sideContinue reading “Day 28 – Sunday”
Some days I just don’t feel like writing 🤷♀️ Some days I just don’t feel like there’s an update. Some days feel like the day before. Repetitive. Long. The days feel like a series of very long drawn out minutes. I do a great deal of resting. I do a great deal of skin management.Continue reading “Day 25 (skipped 24)”
I woke up like this and didn’t notice til I looked in the mirror right before I left to go to radiation. Blood work was double checked and it was deemed completely unrelated to my current situation. However, I think it makes me look tough. So I’m wearing it like a warrior battle wound. TotallyContinue reading “Day 23 part b- eye don’t know what happened”
Not much to report. Managing side effects. Skin looks better this week than last. All that extra skin care with the nurses paid off. That will continue this week after radiation as well. I see Dr E Monday, Wednesday, & Fridays now. This week should be uneventful and I should ‘cruise’ through. Gearing up toContinue reading “Days 22&23 hello week 4”
More sleep today. I am in a pattern, rest, play, rest, play, repeat. Spent as much time as I could outside today. Perfect weather. Watched chickens and took a short walk to check out the new trees Gregg planted. Back at it tomorrow.
Thanks to the meds, so tired. Multiple naps today. Unpacked from the near wild fire evacuation last night and then relaxed a lot. More tomorrow. Not a ton to report today.
3 wks done & 3 wks to go my tribe! I usually start with radiation then have a doc appointment after but it was opposite today. In the main waiting room Gregg and I saw an older woman who was clearly suffering. It set the tone It was difficult to see and know there’s notContinue reading “Day 19- 1/2 way done 😳”
