Lather, Rise, Repeat

I'm starting to feel like this treatment reporting is about as interesting to read as watching paint dry.

Today marks day 24 with 9 left to go.

Now, in addition to smelling bad, I am starting to feel bad. Not just tired, but, frankly, as though someone is ramming my chest with a hot knife. And itchy, as well.

The good news is, I feel like I'm picking up speed!

I can't get a lot of knitting done in the 5 or so minutes I wait for treatment to start, but hope springs eternal, so I carry my latest portable, mindless, I Can Set It Down At Any Moment project with me. Today it's slippers. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? (Probably the other slipper.)


Reporting your treatment is a lot more meaningful than watching paint dry! Some of us have been there and done that, some of us will do so in the future, and all of us can empathize with your ordeal ... I am amazed you are able to continue working, knitting, running your household, and blogging!! Hang in there, not long to go!
Ann, my sister and her daughter are walking in Philadelphia's Breast Cancer 3-Day walk this weekend. In the cold and pouring rain. . . actually, tomorrow's part of the walk has been canceled, for safety -- high wind and flood warnings down this way. (You're probably getting snow!) If I'd known, I'd have added your name to the names of my 5 other friends who appear on the back of their team's shirts.

Ann, these last days of treatment will be the hardest, as I'm sure you've already guessed. It's the accumulation of all the treatments, both as they affect your whole body and especially your skin. But you'll get through it and things will get better. I promise!
Almost done, Ann. Almost done. Just keep repeating that to yourself.

But you are strong and you will get through it. We are all behind you, pushing with you as hard as we can.
