Remember, Drink Lots Of Fluids!

So I'm feeling a little better today - the coughing has mostly stopped, but I'm still a little loopy. I've kinda locked myself in my apartment so I can rest and get over my cold and hopefully feel better for a few days before I have chemo. I'm starting to get excited about the chemo countdown, after this Thursday I'll have 3 chemo's left...that's totally do-able!

I've got a ton of paperwork to fill out tonight. I'm currently on short term disability and I got something in the mail about applying for long term disability. I have to give them like 2 years of medical history! I thought it would just switch over to long term, but now lovely paperwork! I hate paperwork. I wish they would just call me and ask me questions or something - HELLO! I have cancer! I'm hoping I get my short term disability check on Monday - it's 2 weeks late. I'm hoping they didn't stop it for some reason and not tell me. I hate having to rely on the disability people to mail my checks to work and then work to mail them to me. I don't want to be a pain and keep checking on where my check is, but sheesh they take forever!!
I'm kinda antsy today. I hope there is good stuff on TV tonight. Tomorrow I'm going to go out and get out of the apartment. Hopefully I'll be feeling normal by then! I also have to clean my apartment - I have hair all over everything - it's pretty gross. I still think my hair is slowing down on falling out. I still get clumps, but they seem a little less. My underarm hair is growing faster and my brows are growing - so that's good news to me! I haven't noticed any stubble on my head yet - I figure I'll notice when it starts to grow since my part is so big. I guess usually it takes people a few months after chemo to have their hair start to grow - so I guess I might have to wait until July or August...fingers are crossed for sooner though.

Anywho, I'm going to get back to being lazy. Keep those fingers crossed for good news this week - I need all the luck I can get!!
