Round 3/4

So some of you are probably wondering is it Round 3 or 4. Well its kinda like 3.5 I guess what happened was the last time I was there they didn't give me the full dose of chemo because I was gonna be having surgery two days later. So because of that I went backwards. Today was considered my 3rd treatment and I have 3 more to go. 11/23, 12/13 and 1/3. I can then have my breast surgery 3 weeks after my last round of chemo. Yipee! I'm getting there. My lung cancer is GONE. Everything looks good. I need no further treatment for the lungs. I just need to finish healing which will take a couple months. I will get scans regularly to continue to make sure all is good.

Today was the first time I actually got queasy and nauseated during treatment. It didn't last to long but was enough to bother me. Today's chemo was very quiet and boring. No kids no visitors. Just me and Jesse. I traded my heels for boots today. :) I was able to read a new book I got. I'm gonna be sharing some deep stuff with you guys that I'm learning from this book. But you have to promise to do it with me. You don't have to have cancer to do this.
 So I spent 4 hrs at chemo and 2 hrs in the car to get home. Traffic was awful I was not a happy camper. I'm kicking cancers ass but my ass is getting bigger and bigger from all this sitting. LOL! And here I am at the computer face booking it up for the last 2 hrs. OY! I need to get a treadmill. Anyone have one they are using as coat rack or has 2 inches of dust on it cause you haven't used it since the day you got it. If so let me know I'd love to borrow it for a few months.

I traded the heels for boots its getting cold out there.

My friend that I can not wait to get rid of forever

the book you all are going to be hearing a lot about

Well this is a short one. I'm super tired. I will write again tomorrow. Its gonna be a good one I promise.
