Tomorrow is chemo #2, then just 4 more to go after this one YEAH! The funny thing is at 46 I have gone through menopause early, but now chemo has jumpstarted the hormones- now I get my period? Most people go into menopause- I come out.
I worked out hard today, I felt great. 1 hour of cardio, then a class at the cancer center, my first Tai Chi- it was fun.
I found out my parathyroid is overactive- High calcium levels and that might need surgery to correct. I guess a minor thing in the scheme of things. More tests, more doctor visits, less time for work and family....
I am looking forward to chemo#2, I can visualize the killing of the cancer cells, I know what to expect, which makes it much less scary. I talked to a survey company and let them know the reality of how the system is working at the cancer center. They asked me to join a panel- I will make it better for the next woman or man that walks through those doors scared and nervous with no one there to really welcome you. They need a mother type person at that front desk who remembers everyone who walks through that door and greets them with kindness and care! I am excited to take part in that.
Well, off to pick up my son from Church group- they were climbing on chairs, shooting paper guns and eating pizza when I left him- what a great thing for a bunch of boys!
