I wanted to jump on real quick and provide an update. The last few days were much the same, but tonight I feel things are on the uphill.
I am still having fatigue and some other issues, but those will continue to improve over the next few days. I have taken two days’ worth of the antibiotic and will continue the full seven-day course. Thank you to all the people who have reached out checking on me!
I also have an update on the next phase of treatment. I was scheduled to begin the Taxol portion of chemo next Tuesday, the 15th. The doctor gave the option of then skipping the week of Christmas and finishing the last 11 cycles the week following. I spoke with the nurse who then spoke with Dr. K and we will be putting the first cycle off until after Christmas. I am a bit torn on how I feel. I want to get this over with as soon as possible, but my body so much needs the rest. I am going to take the extra two weeks to build strength and prepare for the next phase!
Mastectomy Surgery – DONE
AC Chemo (Red Devil) – DONE
Taxol chemo and radiation are all I have left. It’s hard to believe that this journey only started four months ago…it feels like we’ve been battling for years…If it’s God’s will, it’s all uphill from here!
