“You gotta keep your head up!” Andy Grammer
It is very disheartening to hear that you are incurable but I will keep going. I am almost done with my first of four rounds of chemo. The chemo is really kicking my butt, I am exhausted all the time and now losing my hair. This Sunday I get to take a week off the chemo so hope I regain some energy before going on it again. I got an electric wheelchair and a hospital bed to try to make daily life easier.
Friday the family travelled to RI to the yearly get-together with friends and family at the lake house. It was a lot of fun but I wish I could have done more. I missed paddle boarding and kayaking with everyone. It was fun to float around in a tube in the water once they figured out the best way to wedge me in. I really enjoyed the donut cake from Allie’s Donuts. Also made sure to get Aunt Carrie’s clam cakes and NY system wienies. I used my facial and massage gift certificate that I won at the south county relay for life. It was awesome and I am now a fan of the spa concept and look forward to a pedicure.
It was nice floating around on Sunday with my young cousin Bridget and playing cards with Sloan and Vivian. I really appreciated the attention all the young visitors gave me.
Even though this chemo is tiring me out because my doctor said “maybe one of these treatments is Nathan’s answer, if this treatment does not do the trick we have a couple others lined up.
