I had my 7th round of chemo on Monday. I wish I could tell you that I know exactly what to expect but one thing I have learned through cancer is that I have so little control over my body. I literally have no "EARTHLY" idea what is going on to happen. Every week seems to be so different from the week before that I feel like I am on this surprise journey until Friday's. Usually by Friday, enough of the drugs are out of body that I am feeling almost back to myself. Weekends are so looked forward to in our home.
And since weekends are so good let me share just a glimpse of this past weekend. Last Thursday I received a phone call that a very special lady wanted to give Michael and me a weekend at the Grand Hotel. For those of you not from the area, this is about 45 mins away and is a little piece of paradise nestled on the Mobile Bay. I was blown away. Well, I ended up spending Friday night with some college friends for a girls night over there. I was attending a Women's Conference with them and Michael thought it would be good for us to stay and have fun. Fun....we had fun! It was the latest I have been up in a really long time. Michael came over on Saturday and we had an amazing time. It was so fun to feel well enough to really enjoy the Spring weekend!
So...where do I stand....
I am hoping that next week will be my week to hear zero! If that is the case, I will have about three more rounds of chemo to endure after that. We will begin more scans, ultrasounds, and test as soon as I get to zero and from that point I will hopefully receive a "partial remission" status. I will continue to monitored and tested for a year and then hopefully hear that I am in full remission.
Thanks for caring, and following this blog.
