So I started back on chemo yesterday! Feelin ok! Still on steroids from the brain radiation, and I have never been fatter! My fingers and toes are sausages!!! And my belly feels 9months pregnant. Everything is tight, not water fat like when your pregnant, but tight/thick from steroids. Everyone says it will go away once I am done with the steroids, and boy do I hope so! Here is some more joys the steroids have done:
made my nose and ears bleed, my nose holes, earring holes, and ear holes are smaller. AND I can't stop eating! I am hungry ALL the time! I am trying to control myself, but let's just say it, sometimes I can't! I AM HUNGRY! Not to mention, my nice dark-sunburned blistered forehead, and big muscle lump on the back of my neck. It is all so weird, I DO NOT LIKE! But soon enough I will be off them and moving forward. Just something I thought I would post, so I can remember these days!
I am doing ok, still dizzy at times, and headaches, and WAY tired, but I am coping!
I had a friend from Seattle come visit over the weekend, which was great! John, I and Nikki all went to dinner and a play Saturday night and I wore a wig! It was fun, different as it has been 2months since I shaved my head, but I liked it. By the end of the night on the ride home it had to come off. Got a little itchy and HOT. But it was so nice to get out for a bit.
Notice the nice BIG cheeks! :)Just wanted to clarify that the results I got on Friday were results on my liver, lungs, and chest wall. NOT MY BRAIN! I will find out more on the brain in 2 months. So my body is responding to chemo! YAY! YAY! YAY! Just to celebrate again!
FYI: My awesome wig was donated by Kelly Giblin from LemonadeLocks at www.lemonadelocks.com Check-em out if you need a wig, they are amazing! THANK YOU Kelly and Kris! LUVS!
