Yesterday I had my final PET scan, and today the doctor read the results. COMPLETE REMISSION! NO SIGNS OF CANCER! NO RADIATION NEEDED! ALL IS GOOD AND RIGHT ONCE AGAIN! Okay, he didn't say that last one, but he may as well have. I am ecstatic! This is great news. I had a good feeling … Continue reading COMPLETE REMISSION
As I've mentioned before, after a couple rounds of chemo I started this thing I called, "Chemo Karaoke" where I would sing silly songs on the way home from chemo. You can see the first round of those here. Now that I'm done with Chemo and that is a thing of the past (woohoo!), I … Continue reading Chemo Karaoke – Last Round
Caution: I am not an expert in makeup. Most of you will view this and think, "Sheesh. This girl has a long way to go." I totally get it. But I'm super bored right now and it's super cold outside so I'm really just doing this to kill some time. I mentioned a while back … Continue reading My “What cancer?” makeup routine
As of Saturday or Sunday (I don't really know which, but one of those), I became NOT NEUTROPENIC. Woohoo! So what did I do? I went with my family to our friend's house and had my first drink since March of this year. Okay, maybe also my second and third drink too. It was a good … Continue reading Almost living that not-neutropenic good life
It's the Sunday after my LAST CHEMO and I'm feeling...icky. Yeah, pretty much what I expected. But it's the last time I'm gonna feel icky, so that's awesome. I'm gonna keep the words short and sweet in this post and just share some pictures. When I'm not feeling icky again I'll come back to post … Continue reading No more chemo!
Today is a day that won't go down in infamy, but it is a day for both reflection and looking ahead. And first and foremost, remember when I said this way back when I told you all I had cancer for the first time? "I could end with some hippy dippy bologna about rainbows and … Continue reading I’m in that space now.
Today is definitely a very Mondayish Monday. It's the Monday after chemo so I'm still in pjs and wrapped up in a blanket. I had to have another call with the Long Term Disability people who are still not doing much of anything. I've got a load of dishes sitting in the sink that I … Continue reading Mondays.
This isn't a political post so don't get your panties in a bunch. It's really just a post full of updates, but one of the updates is that, yes, I feel like I'm experiencing a political hangover right now. Five hours of sleep and waking up at 3:45 from hot flashes and checking to see … Continue reading Oh did something big happen today?
In 23 days, I'll have my last chemo treatment. Huzzah! That means that in 23 days I'll have been undergoing chemo treatments for FIVE WHOLE MONTHS. That's right, folks. Can you believe it? When I talk to people I haven't seen for a bit, they remark, "Wow, I can't believe you're almost done. It seems like … Continue reading Confessions of a “shut in”
Note: Who spells "Karaoke" correct on the first try? Never. Not once could I spell it right the first time. I hate spelling that word! So anywho, I thought on this gloomy day that today would be as good as any to let you in on a little thing I call "Chemo Karaoke." What is … Continue reading Chemo Karaoke
