Chemo number two is done. Hopefully it will be easier this time since she reduces it by 25%.  Now it's jammies and rest. Thanks y'all for being there for me. It's lovely.

This is my wig. It's by Raquel Welch and it's very comfortable. Not itchy at all. 

Tomorrow is my second dose of poison. I mean chemo. Hopefully it will be easier than the first one. 

I've had a lovely week and felt good so I'm ready to carry on...

About half my hair has come out now. It just is thinner and I was still able to style it and play canasta today. Tomorrow I go get my wig and will lose much more hair by then I'm sure. If I run a hairbrush through it it's full of hair each stroke. It doesn't hurt and I'm sure it will come back after I finish everything. Wednesday is my next chemo treatment. It's all good. I shall be fine and become strong again. I promise.

Dinner with TCD was lovely. Sorry I took this after we finished eating and I had no lipstick on.  Anyway I had a fabulous evening!

 I had a visit with Dr Wacks today and here's what he said…

There comes a time when your doctor must tell you to just shut up and do what I say.   This is that time. Just take the treatment.

Still not sure what I'm going to do but I do feel much better right now and I may go ahead with it. As always, I will tell you when I know.

Chemo update:  I had an oncology appointment today and I am considering dropping further chemo. I am weighing the chances of recurrence with both options. I hate to be such a woosy but it was seriously the worst week of my life. The numbers take me from a 16% chance of it coming back to 9% with more chemo. Big decision. If any if you have any knowledge or input I welcome your thoughts.

Day 6:  I seemed to have lost a few days. Sort of slept, moaned, and generally had some "ookie" days. That's the only word I can think of to describe them. Today I may be a tiny bit better. Not sure yet but hope so...

Day 3:  needed Imodium and anti nausea meds. Lethargic and lazy. 

For those that asked this was my first ever chemo. Before I had radiation. 

Must lay down.

Day 2...  not bad. Meds kept nausea away and just lazy is all I can really say. Of course tomorrow is supposed to be the start of feeling weak and puny. We shall see.
