My last update was in October when I finished my radiation treatments. Now I’m having Chemotherapy.
Every month I have 5 days where I take chemo pills. I also take pills to reduce nausea, and a special cream rubbed on my wrists also reduce the nausea. I’ve been through the week of chemo pills 4 times now. Every time I got better at taking the nausea pills on time and eating snacks all day which made the nausea go away. It really isn’t too bad anymore.
I’m not supposed to be around sick people, especially when it’s the week I’m taking the chemo pills. I can easily get sick. I’ve been told that if I get a low fever I would possibly be sent to an ER. That sounds scary, but so far so good.
My hair is growing back even though I’m taking chemo pills. Anyone who had brain radiation treatment will lose the hair where the radiation light is sent. Then with our chemo we don’t loss hair. Most people I’ve seen with another cancer lose their hair when going through chemo.
I talk about my brain tumor a little at the beginning and some more 3/4 of the way through this YouTube book video.
My husband Colt and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary this month! I got this super fun wig for the date night. I am definitely going to wear it again. It’s nice to be camouflaged from having a cancer.
I’ve had many MRI. The most recent ones have shown that the tumor is gone. I continue to fight off the possibility of it growing by doing the chemo treatment. I’ll be finished in September and hope to be down for a LONG time.
Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers for me and my family. We feel so blessed.
