I'm trying not to whine and complain, coz nobody likes a crybaby! Sometimes, though, it's hard to stay positive.
I've moved into my second round of chemo which I get to space out to once a week. So far, not so bad. Still no hair, but I'm hoping when it comes back in it might be jet black with no gray!
Feeding tube,,,ugh what can I say about that wonder appendage?? I don't have to use it yet since I can still swallow but I have been using it as extra supplement. It's actually kind of comical if you can imagine two people with two left hands trying to carefully plunge what I'm sure is a great tasting formula into a tube sticking out of your stomach.
The most fun part of my day (and I'm being facetious here!) is the daily radiation. To hold you still so the radiation beam goes to the same location each time a plastic mask is snapped down over your face to hold you in place. THAT SUCKS!! but it only lasts for about 10 minutes so with the help of a nerve pill I get through it!
One thing that gets me through my days is all the thoughts, prayers and good wishes from all my family, friends and even people I have never met! On the counter at the radiation office is a bowl of 'wishing stones' where anyone can write a message. My sisters left this one for me when they were there and I look for it every day and know that I am surrounded by love and will get through this!!
