10 kicked my butt

by | Dec 21, 2021

Wow I am just starting to come out of the fog from treatment number 10.  It is double digits though so woohoo for that.  Anyway this time I needed sleep and sleep I did.  I felt bad because Eric and I planned to make cookies this past weekend and I was struggling just to stand up.  We got one batch, well he did, of PB Blossoms made but I need to make another batch soon as they keep disappearing.

What is good – I am coming out of the fog which I didn’t think I would.  I was worried this would affect my Christmas with Luke but I think I should be fine by the end of the week.  I decided I would not be able to drive all the way to Pittsburgh so It will be Luke, Eric and I for the holiday.  I need to come up with things to do that are not our in large groups but still allow us to celebrate.

What is better – Number 10 means I am once treatment closer to the end.  Where the end is I am not really sure since I have not been given and ending time.  At this point is means either 12, which would be nice, or 15 which would be a struggle.  I have been fortunate going through treatment with keeping my strength and stamina but I think I am reaching the point where my body is getting too tired.  My best plan would be 12 rounds of chemo then surgery but we will see what the professionals think.

Just for today, I am going to give 100% to my job, I have today and tomorrow then am done for the year, rest when I need to and be here for Luke tonight.  These are all things I never had to schedule or think of but now things are changed.
