    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I have one more chemo treatment left and am very excited to be done with this first part of my journey. I am so thankful to God that my side effects have been manageable. I decided at this past chemo treatment (weds) that I would not do the steroids that they have me on for the four days that follow for pain. So far I haven't had any pain and I'm on day two!! The side effects from the steroids were horrible and I would rather have to use vicodin for pain then deal with those steroids. Right now I don't have to use either!! Next part of my journey is surgery in June.

    My husband Joel supporting my journey by shaving his head and us embracing our new look with laughter. I'm truly blessed to have him in my life. Thanks be to God.

      That's great! He's a great guy, I'm sure you agree, thanks to him for being a faithful caregiver, I know what it's like to have one, I've been down this road 3 times. We wish both of you the best as you travel your journey.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I have 8 sessions of chemo - with the harshes chemo for the first four and just had two of my second set of chemos with having two sessions left. The first set I had nausea and fatigue but medication helped the nausea. The second set has been harder because of the steroids that have to be taken with it. I tried working at my job through all the treatment but just started short term disability as my port got infected and I had to have surgery to take it out for a period of time. I have blood clots so I am on thinners which makes everything harder - even healing from the port being removed. Surgery will come in June and then 6 1/2 weeks of radiation.
