Hump Day

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.
