2Nd Round Of Chemo, Done!
Posted 17 December 2011 - 05:15 AM
Well the 2nd round of cocktails are done and I am happy to report that this time was much easier, mainly fatigue but nothing I couldn't handle. I have one more round the 28th then surgery to remove my stomach in February. Ok so that is freaking me out a little I am doing all I can to get my body ready, physically, mentally, and spiritually so that my healing process will be easier. I just want everyone to know that I am doing well the doctors are very pleased with my progress, they actually thought by this point I would need a feeding tube, but I fooled them all and I am actually gaining weight!!! So I have this break now to enjoy Christmas with my family, so for now the words, Cancer, surgery, and chemotherapy are banned in my house. I just want to enjoy this next week and only have some fun!!! Have a wonderful day my friends and thank you again for all your support.

Husband tested positive in July 2010 and has refused to go gluten free. Uh huh, that's gonna bite him in the a** one day! (Pun intended!)
