It took a bit longer this time, I've been busy with all sorts of things... Bone scan was last week, what a nerve racking time that was ... but the results are in and my bones look normal! NORMAL. How's that for a word on my test results?! Pretty cool right? Brad and I are overjoyed. My abdominal ultrasound also showed nothing unusual, so it hasn't spread to the bones or any organ, so it's officially 'contained' to the breast ... and that one is gone, so I am breathing easy.
Or was, until I realized spring had sprung and my eyes are in full allergy mode. And I don't have those 'normal' allergies that I can alleviate on my own with over the counter drops and pills, no, I have to go to the eye doctor and get cortisone shots in my eye and go on Prednezone eye drops for a while just to manage my symptoms. So this week, I take 4 eye drops per day in each eye, and 2 steroids for chemo morning and night, and 2 anti nausea pills morning and night - but not at the same time mind you - then the neulasta shot is today at 1:30pm exactly and then I have some other pills with dinner and not to forget my sleeping pills that come at a certain time. I swear my brain is full with mush now. I stare blankly at all my pills/drops and I just get a headache. For which I won't take another pill, because frankly I'm pilled out. Ugh.
Other than that, we had a lovely Easter.
But even better, we've planned a trip. Brad and I are taking the kids to Maui when this whole cancer business is over. Next spring. It gives us some time to plan it and something for all of us to look forward to. And, (don't tell anyone, it's just between us and the world wide readers) we are thinking of tying the knot there. On the beach. Now how cool would that be? And when I say, 'we're thinking' of it, I mean, 'it's all booked and paid for' so that's what we'll be doing :)
Don't get jealous that you're not coming, we'll take lots of pictures...although, I wonder if I'll have any hair by then? Hmmmm...if not, it's wedding a la Sinead O'Connor.
The sandy beach will be the real stunner.
