The Taxol is now visibly taking it's toll on my body. It's difficult to witness my body deteriorate in some places in order to fight the Cancer. My body constantly aches and is exhausted however this is exactly how they said it would all play out.
I no longer have eyebrows or eyelashes and most of my body hair has fallen out. My nose constantly runs because I have no nose hair left!!
My fingernails are also suffering, some lifting from the nailbeds and most likely I will lose a few. It's all hard to watch and I cannot do anything to change it no matter how hard I try to do everything possible to avoid these consequences of fighting the good fight!
I'm counting the days until my last infusion and time cannot pass quickly enough. After that I still have a long road ahead with surgery, radiation, reconstruction and healing and I am ready to get to that point and hopefully return to some sort of "normal" in my life.
Thanks to everyone who has continued to support me, check in on me, pray for me, laugh with me and cry with me. I couldn't have gotten this far without each and everyone of you and your encouragement and kind words keep me going. I WILL beat this.
I hope all of YOU are off to a wonderful new year, I wish all of YOU the best!
