YES, that is right, I got a BREAK!
I went to get my Herceptin (30min) treatment on the 14th, and they came to hook me up and said it would be an hour. They were going to give me double Herceptin, and then they said plus the chemo, which will be another hour. WHAT?? No this is my week off, I tell them. But they said the DR. wanted me to have a week off, so we were doing it all today. OK! little confused, but OK! Thank goodness my dear friend Lisa was with me, cause I had drove myself thinking I would be fast. So, she stayed with me the whole time, and arranged for our friend Jamie to follow us home, so Lisa would have a ride back as well. I haven't had a week off from going to the hospital since OCT. I have been going every week for some kind of test, treatment, appointment for 5 months. I was excited and a little nervous. But I came home called John and he arranged at work to take the next week off. Him and I alone, headed south to St. George for the WHOLE week! It was absolutely FANTASTIC! My parents came down with our kids late Thursday night. So, not only did John and I get a little getaway, we got some family time too! John and I even did 1 day in Vegas and went to see KA (a Cirque du Soleil show). I walked more in that one day than I have combined in the last 5 months! And my foot is paying for it. I have some how injured/bruised my left foot. But it was all worth it! It was hard this Monday morning to get back to reality.
I wanted to show you my poor head after being finished with radiation for weeks. They say it
burns from the inside out, and boy does it. Friday was 5 weeks since I have finished and my ears still burn. Crazy! but I just have to think of those tumors melting away.
All blisters! Even on forehead and behind ears.
MRI on brain is scheduled for April 2nd.
So lets all pray they are gone! ALL GONE!
I start back on chemo this week, and we will do another body check in a month or so.
LOVES TO ALL!
