Staying positive during Chemo treatments

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

So for the last few months, I have been going through all the yucky Drs. Appointments and getting all the great details on what I Will have to go through for the next 6 months or so. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I was Tripple Negative (long story, not really interesting, but the reason I had to have chemo)

I started my Chemo 3 weeks ago. I go every two weeks, so I just finished my second round on Monday. I feel pretty good, considering. Nothing too out of control yet, other than having to go bald that is lol I am totally ok with it because I know it will all come back. Did I mention I am also a hairdresser? hehe Year, so there is that! haha, My hair like overnight just started falling out in clumps! And if I tugged on it any amount, it was crazy! I knew I would end up with alopecia (bald spots) and knew I didn't want to, so I took control and had my son do a Mohawk first, just for the fun of it LOL And then take the rest off after.

I figured if nothing else, we have the great memories of a super hilarious night! I do have the video and was going to just post it here and dont have the patience to find where I do that right now lol Here are two of the crazy pictures lol

So what has all this done to my weight loss? With all the meds I am taking, prednisone especially I am retaining weight. I am up about 8 lbs total in the last 3 months or so, and I was NOT totally on track through all that mess either, so I am happy to say its ONLY 8 lbs! And I am still down over 44 lbs!

Now I working towards losing it again. So wish me luck! And if you pray, pls just say a prayer for me, I have a long 6 months ahead of me. 6 more treatments of Chemo and then 4 straight weeks of radiation, every day! Then I am done! So I am looking forward to 2020 for so many great reasons :)

Have a great week all and tell those important to you that you love and appreciate them DAILY! Or as often as possible. Don't be sorry, nobody is promised tomorrow!

    My husband had seven full weeks of radiation... some days twice a day. No chemo . We were told to treat it like it’s a job, a contract. That helped us. You will learn ‘tips’ from others you meet in treatment...How to cope. All the best to you.
