That's a wrap for chemo, 6th treatments and what a journey! Not for the faint of heart. The fatigue has been more relentless the further I've come. I look forward to having some/any energy and being able to enjoy doing more than laying down. I'm pretty sure my depleted red blood count is a lot of the problem, mine is at 2 and optimal is 4-6. Bracing myself for the neuropathy to get worse and will be more diligent on taking the anti nausea to reduce the vomiting, fingers crossed. It has been increasingly challenging to work, several hours is a full day for me. This last time my right hand was very red and a little swollen and painful for a week or so, not looking forward to more of that. I pray my hands go back to normal but expect it may be Feb before that occurs.
I want to continue to thank everyone for the support and prayers, it has been a huge help to know you're out there cheering me on and supporting me when I have nothing. Art has been my biggest supporter and has been unfailing in making our life go on in spite of chemo.
