Today was day 15. Believe it or not half way through induction! It was another bone marrow aspiration and treatment day at Smilow. It was a long day because I also had to be transfused. Everything went well for the most part. Dad was there to keep everyone in check today. I am now home eating some ice cream J I still have a pretty good appetite. I am feeling tired but will head to bed shortly.
Tomorrow I will be sitting for one of my final exams. I am almost done with the semester! It will be nice to have a month off from school. I am sure after about a week I am not going to know what to do with myself since I can’t venture out. But, I will be starting the consolidation phase of chemo so I am sure there will be much to learn. I continue to take it one step @ a time, so I don’t look that far into the future. It is too stressful to speculate.
Everyone is surprised I still have my hair. I am surprised too. I keep telling them that it isn’t working. (although my labs are going in the right direction). Some people say this week (week 3) is when you lose it…I don’t think they really know. We will just have to wait and see.
I want to thank everyone for the thoughts, prayers, comments and cards. I am lucky to be surrounded by such supportive people.
Till next time…KMS
