I'm feeling good, but super tired these past few days. I've taken at least 3 naps today and it's only 8pm! I can't wait to be done taking my drugs too, it'll be so exciting to hide my zofran and decadron and compazine and laxitives away from me!! Out of sight, out of mind, baby! On the road to recovery soon enough!
I'm getting my port out on Friday and my mom is going to take me. Looks like she's planning on sleeping over Thursday night and maybe Friday (not sure yet) - taking me Friday morning. Should be fun sorta. I'm excited to go to my apartment, I think I'm going to try and stay for about a week or so. We'll see, but that's kinda the plan. I need to feel like me again for a little while and be near people I know :) Then soon enough, I'll be packing up everything for Block Island... I'm really not ready for this trip yet. I need to go get new sneakers, and some shorts, and stuff. But I'm guessing I won't stay for the 3 weeks straight, I have a feeling I'll come back for some reason or another, we're leaving mom's car on the other side of the ferry, so I can go off no problem. I'm excited, I should eat a lot healthier while I'm there. I'm a little nervous about not having air conditioning, just because chemo makes me sweat so darn much, but hopefully it won't get too muggy, I suppose I can always hide in the basement if needed :)
What else... I'm enjoying that a few people have put music on their blogs like I did. I wish I thought of it earlier, but oh well. Still fun and exciting. I couldn't find all the songs I wanted, but did find a lot of them. I'm tech-tastic!
Oh and here's a picture of me looking the most normal I've looked in a while - I took it last weekend before I went out to dinner, I'm wearing a new shirt I bought, and I love the bright green/blue...brightens me up or something :) So, hooray!
Also, my pal Wullie is going in next Tuesday the 19th to start his stem cell transplant bonanza. It's pretty crazy, he gets a super high dose of chemo, then gets his stem cells that have been being harvested over the past few months, then the waiting begins. Please if you get bored, leave him lots of comments, he'll need to entertainment while he's in the hospital for the next 3-6 weeks. He's a trooper, I know he'll kick cancer's ass, big time!!
As for Chris, so far he's doing super with his radiation, minimal side effects thus far - so kudos to him!!
Go cancer fighters and KYPU!!
