So, I went to the Bond Clinic to start chemo at 9am and left at 3:30pm. It was a very long hard day. This drug is much much stronger and goes in very slow…that’s why it takes so long. I was totally exhausted when I was done. I was already on no sleep from taking my steroids at 3am anyways… but mom and I kept busy by watching Netflix on my iPhone:) Overall it is one more down and that’s all I can think of… just 3 more!
I did talk to my Oncologist about the lump I found under my mastectomy scar and said he was a bit worried…which made me worried I told him I’d rather not get another biopsy because the last one was wrong ( 96% accurate my ass;) And he agreed. If it comes down to it when my
surgeon removes some excess skin after chemo, this bump can be removed and looked at then. Part of me wants to totally freak out… part of me doesn’t.
Overall it was one of the hardest days of my life. It was so much in the IV I just wanted it to be over with. I was also told today about some bills that had finally started rolling in, and that made me nervous too. They mentioned a payment plan and we may try that. I found out on paperwork one boob was over $5,000 (the one w/cancer, where the other one was only $1,500) Wow what a steal! This $850 bill was the first to come in since everything started with the biopsy, mammogram, ultrasound, lumpectomy, double mastectomy, chemo, etc. So, not too bad overall.
Hopefully with all the steroids I can still get some sleep. Wish me luck;)
Thank you to my mom today who stuck by me all day no matter how boring it was. My very good friend Mary who took Sophie to play at her house all day and took her to gymnastics (where another good friend surprised her) She has become such a wonderful friend to me and really steppes up in my time
of need:( love you:) Also to my hubby who dragged home a basketball hoop that will probably take hours to put together, but made the girls happy:) He also took me for a late night run to DQ because I hadn’t eaten all day. Love you babe.
Here are videos of my mom and I. I take a short one before each chemo. Here are the first 5:
