and I am doing fine, just trying my best to get through this chemo. I am now on my second half with 6 more weeks to go (3 more treatments). Neuropathy is setting in and my fingers and feet hurt but I have more energy.
This treatment on Wednesday was really scary for me. They started me on taxol, a very strong drug that can cause severe allergic reactions. On one of my prior chemo treatments, the person next to me was being given taxol and had an allergic reaction to the drug and the next thing you know they are calling code blue.
How's that for scaring the living daylights out of you!
But I made it through the treatment and I'm ok.
Today I was in the garden weeding and pruning as best I could with my sore hands but the sunshine felt so nice. I love being in the garden.
I'm trying to eat as healthy as I can but food just doesn't taste like food. Cold food tastes best, I can't seem to get past the cooking smells. I've been eating lots of fruits and veggies. We still have strawberries in the garden.
I stopped at the resource center at UNC on Thursday when I was there and picked up a pretty hat and scarf. It's funny how when you look better, you feel better.
I'll be back later.....
