I did get out with my mom a bit last week after surgery week... And while we were out, I saw a pillow that had a very appropriate saying.
I was finally able to start my oral chemo yesterday (Tuesday) evening. It's 3 pills 2x/day...14 days on, 7 days off. I've had 2 doses and no side effects yet. It may be accumulative....but expecting the best:).
I start radiation one week from today, for 5 days. I went for my simulation on Monday. It will be a high dose in the sternum and the second anterior rib-targeting the cancer in the bone there. I'm looking forward to it very much because those areas have become very sore (like a bad bruise that hurts when touched).
Have a happy day (hint: be thankful:))!
