I am now officially over 1/2 way through chemo. Tumors are shrinking every day. Some of them appear to be completely gone. I find out in a few weeks how close I am to being cancer-free.
It’s been quite a journey and I still have a challenging road ahead of me.
Last week, I was taken by ambulance to the ER. I was admitted and given two blood transfusions to boost my immune system that has crashed and burned. I felt like a new woman the next day – ready to run a marathon.
I have also encountered something known as chemo brain. My thought process has slowed down and I struggle for words and ideas. This will pass, but it’s truly annoying right now. It’s common, but that doesn’t make it less annoying.
So here I am half bald and not able to remember shit. Gotta laugh at the absurdity of it all.
