Today and tomorrow, and then I’m done with “the big ones”. This following week likely won’t be too enjoyable as I’m recoverying, but, the end is in sight, and that’s a gloriously glorious thing. I’m looking forward to small things:
Spending time with my kids without having to remind them to not jump on my or scream to loud… I want to embrace the crazy!
Helping out around the house more
Being able to start jogging again
Not spending all day sitting/lying down
Returning to work! (my brain has been driving me insane)
The return of my beard
Knowing when I want to eat
Being able to spend more than 5 minutes outside (I’m afraid my white reflector head is going to cause plane crashes)
Today’s a good day. It’s the last day of treatment for Cycle 2! I’m really not looking forward to starting Cycle 3 with how Cycle 2 treated me, but, I’m all for being done! I’m sitting in THE CHAIR right now, waiting to get plugged in. My white blood cell count is “pretty low”, so their waiting to get approval before the chemical shock and awe begins. Todays treatment is short, so bring it on.
The past two weeks have been rough. A week of chemo, followed by a week of being stuck in bed. My “recovery” was about twice as long as the first cycle. Not super terrible, but just a constant state of feeling cruddy with zero energy. I started to feel better on Friday, and quickly progressed through to Sunday. I’m only taking one class this summer (I’m working on my Masters of Spiritual Formation), and I have “Face2Face” in Portland today and tomorrow (Monday and Tuesday). I LOVE my time with my fellow classmates, but having just started my upward journey of feeling better, I wasn’t sure how good of an idea this was. I drove up last night, I didn’t want to have to get up that much earlier on Monday and make the drive. So far so good, I’m super-tired, but overall it was a good day today. It felt great to actually get out and do something.
Apparently I wasn’t supposed to show up until 9:15am for today’s daily dosage of cancer killing poison… but 8:05am is pretty close right? So I got my favorite seat and I’m already pumping fluids. Port is working fine today, I had ham, cheese, and an egg w/ cereal and OJ for first-breakfast. My appetite isn’t as strong as it was yesterday morning, but I think that’s mostly because I’m tired. Hopefully I’ll be out by 2:30 or 3:00!
