WRONG!!!!!! Well I tried. Saturday morning I didn't feel to bad so I thought I just push myself through it. We decided to go watch the cardboard races up at Lindys and grab some grub. About 5 minutes in the car I changed my mind. It was worse than I thought and it was coming on strong and quickly. I figured once I got there and ate something I'd be fine. I don't even think I tasted my food. I inhaled it. I have been soooooo hungry lately. Its from the steroids. Not to mention I have lost sense of taste :( Do you have any idea what it is like to be hungry and not be able to satisfy being hungry. Its very weird. I just eat and eat and eat.
So far I have experienced increase and loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, weakness and fatigue, mouth dryness, bleeding and soreness, blackened nails, bone pain, nose bleeds and heartburn that could knock a cow over. The toilet and I have become best buds lately :) I'm thinking since were gonna be such close pals that I should go buy a pink one (toilet) and cover it in swarovski crystals. We might get along a little better that way :)
Got my results back for the BRCA1 BRCA2 and the p53 genetic testing. ALL came back negative. Which means as far as they can tell it is not genetic. I do not have a mutation to either of those genes. Its good in a sense that my kids and or family are not at induced risk. But it leaves me in a gray zone of why this has happened. So they are going to move forward with further genetic testing. We'll see what happens.
I'm going on VACATION!!!!!!!!!! No kids, No phone, No emails, No daily routine. October 13th. I will be gone for 5-7 days. I will spend most of it in a quiet private room. I'll have 6 star unlimited room service. Can't wait!
|This is where I'll be staying!|
My next Chemo is Sept. 23rd which will be followed again with the injection to boost white blood cell count. So two hurdles to get over 9/23 chemo and 10/13 surgery. I can do this!
