9th week down!! 3 to go!
Last week I had a trip planned to go back to my home town of Saint Louis. It was so nice to be back. I had a great time. My sister and brother in law came in to visit from KC and all my girlfriends from high school had come back with their kids (some of whom I had yet to meet). It had been a long time (years) since i had been back to STL and since all of my girlfriends were back together again. Such a good time.
The week I went home, the doctors mentioned that I had a low red blood count, so I was anemic. I had been really tired, which would have explained something. In general, i have become more tired as the days pass. Chemo is really weakening my body. I had a shot for the red counts last week, and managed to get my count up this past week, but i'm still pretty tired. Got a bit of a cold this week, which has added to it. Overall though, I'm fantastic! I'm so excited that I get to be done with this thing (at least the chemo) in 3 weeks!
