Chemo #3 - Halfway done!

Hi All,

I had my third chemo on the 6th of March. I am so happy to be at the halfway point. However, this is day 4, which is my yuck day, so I really wish I was just done with this whole thing. My added intake of iron rich foods doesn't seem to have helped my anemia; my counts actually went down - boo! Oh well, bring on the supplements, I guess. So, I am having a pity party today. My whole body aches and my face and hands are red and swollen and I want my blankie - wah! wah! Okay, that's enough whining for now. I am sure tomorrow will be better and I'll be peachy keen by Friday, when I go in for my weekly Herceptin. It's really nice to be able to do the Herceptin at Ballard. I can just walk over from work and walk back. If only everything was this easy.

Good to hear that it's going well Shana. I like the short sassy blonde one as well!!

Amazingly enough, we just had blood tests done on Luke, as he was gaining weight rapidly and was tired all the time. Guess who else has Anemia? He has to take an iron supplement daily for 3 months and was told to eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

I'll be sure to update Tony as he never gets on the computer anymore unless he's playing Chainz 2 ha ha...

Sending our love!
