Happy Halloween!!

Went to both Dr's today, chemo and radiologist and was released by both until I get a pet scan on Nov 29.  Yippy!!! No more chemo or radiation.  I have to go for the next couple of weeks to get blood checked but that's all.  It seemed like this day would never come, but the most important is getting a good pet scan.  The Dr said I should start getting some hair back in about 6 weeks.  God, I can't wait.   I have no eyebrows, eyelashes or hair anywhere!  It's horrible!  Last week I had my last chemo and the next day I had a blood transfusion, instead of the shot and that worked out for me alot better.  So that is where it stands right now, and I am happy, so I will wait for 3-4 weeks and pray for the best.  Thank you to all who have cared and please keep me in your prayers I need it.  For those who call and check on me Thank you.

Oct 18

Well it has been a long time since I wrote but that last chemo just about killed me.  It was 5 hours long total and then the next day I had to go for a shot which they said would make my joints ache.  Ache they did and then some, everywhere, I could barely walk and get out of bed and I took pain pills, half of what they per scribed and that constipated me for 4 days.  I really thought I was on my last days.  I am still not feeling well and it has now been two and a half weeks and I am suppose to go through this again next Monday.  I have had to go the last two Monday's and get my blood drawn and my counts keep going down but they don't seem to be to concerned.  I have a cough that makes me feel like I have smoked a pack of cigs a day, and I am not smoking!  I told the nurse all of this yesterday about how I was feeling and she said if it got any worse to let them know.  I DO NOT WANT TO DO MY LAST TREATMENT!!!!!!!!  I am so burned and tired and achy and bald, my hair follicles hurt all over my head,  I am having trouble eating and I am losing weight, things are getting so loose on me.  I sleep for two hours and then up to the bathroom, drink lots of water and back to sleep for two hours.  I want this all to end.  I want to know that somethings good has happened from all this, I want to see some test results!!!

Well, I guess I will just have to wait until next Monday and see what the Dr. says.  Thanks for all the well wishes and thoughts and prayers.  Until next time......
