And another treatment is done. I’m always so happy when they are over. But the time seems to fly by between treatments and the next thing you know it’s time for yet another one. *sigh*
Anyway, not too much has changed since the last treatment. I’ve spent most of this week with the usual nausea. I’m in the process of trying something new to help with it. We’ll see how it goes. Below is a picture from my latest treatment.
My pretty red blanket was given to me by my niece Katie. Thanks again Katie!
The next picture is a close up of where the nurses hook into my port. This is the path by which all that lovely chemo makes it into my body.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking this week. Mainly about how I feel and where I’m at as far as my quality of life is concerned. I’ve also been doing a lot of thinking about who I’m really doing all of this for and how much more I’m willing to put myself through. I have to be honest, I don’t feel like my quality of life is very good and that is something that is VERY important to me. Every week is a struggle to do normal things. I have one more trip I would really like to go on and I don’t feel well enough to even start planning it. I spend most of my time just trying to get ready for the next treatment. I’m really getting tired of being sick to my stomach all the time from the chemo. I hear from various people that it’s hard for them to believe that I’m so sick because I don’t “look” sick, I don’t “act” sick. Well that’s all part of who I am and how I handle this. I smile, laugh and joke so I don’t make anyone around me uncomfortable. I don’t want to let me being sick drag everyone down around me. I guess what I’m trying to get across is that I have some soul searching to do and some really hard decisions to make.
Thanks again to all who are following along on this journey of mine. Find something beautiful in today!
