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!
