So Soper said my hair won't completely fall out this time, just thin, and if he is wrong I will chase him around his office with a pair of clippers, I promise. We are going with Cistplatin, Gemzar, and Avastin this time. I've had Avastin, so i'm not overly worried about that one. Gemzar is a "gem", easy, so they say. But Cistplatin is a big fat jerk. Really tough on the kidneys, so I need to drink a crap ton of water everyday. I must've gotten up to pee 5 times last night. Cistplatin is also the one that may cause my hair to thin, ugh. We are set for 6 of these, if all goes as planned my last one will be on Christmas Eve. Hoping this new chemo mix will get rid of the new junk and we can go back on a fancy PARP for another year (or more!) of stability.
I had my first chemo on Friday, so today isn't the best day every but i'm up, so that's a plus. Tomorrow and Wednesday will probably be suckers, as days 4 and 5 are expected to be. I've been pretty active since Friday so i'm not shocked at having a bit of a crash day a day early. Abby is home for fall break and has come college friends coming to town so I've been cooking and baking. Plus we too Amberly to her first ever hockey game Saturday night! She even got a high five from the mascot Caroline!
My chemo schedule from now on will be every other Tuesday. In hopes that I can work, Wed, Thur and Fri before having a crash day ~ which will hopefully be on Saturday and Sunday. It will probably take some tweeking but it's only 12 weeks, so I am pretty sure I can truck through it.
Cutting it short so I can grab a quick lay down before some visitors stop over this afternoon. As always, your thoughts, prayers, good vibes, all you got, is very much appreciated. Thank you to everyone who purchased a t shirt! I can't wait to see them! <3
