This week I will have chemo treatment #3. That means I will only have one more to go. I never thought I would get here, let alone that it would happen so fast. The weeks have flown by since starting chemo. I can't believe it has gone so quickly.
I have managed way better than I imagined so far. I keep waiting for the shoe to drop and to feel awful. It just can't be this easy getting through chemo. It just can't be. I want to remain optimistic that it could be this easy, but I am having a hard time buying that!
I am thinking about doing chemo again on Wednesday and having a little anxiety over it. I just hate waiting for side effects or the possibility of feeling bad. Oh and the eating non-stop for days following chemo due to the steroids. I just can't stop eating carbs in the days following chemo. I don't know how anyone can be that hungry!
I am counting my blessings that I have felt so good. I have not missed a workout since starting chemo other than infusion days. I have not taken any naps. I have not felt nauseous at all (I have not taken one pill for that). I pray that I continue to feel this good and just get through this OK. One can hope.
I am a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a neice, an aunt and a friend. I never thought I would hear the words "It's not good. There are cancer cells". December 8, 2010 changed my life forever. This is my scary, long, enlightening journey through breast cancer. I hope that my words help others facing a similar situation or those that love someone going through breast cancer. I don't know where the road in front of me leads, but I know that Breast Cancer won't define me.
