I’m Still Here …

Wow! I’ve got so much to tell you. I think … We’ll see how much I can remember. Where should I begin?

Let’s back up to a couple weeks ago. I got sick. Pretty darn sick. My white blood count went down to 1. I was very anemic and neutropenic. And I had a Shingles breakout and cellulitis underneath it. I had to get a daily Neupogen shot. Which made me feel icky. It all made me feel icky, honestly. The worst part was that I had to skip my Chemo that week.

I’m better now, though. I’m still anemic, but everything else looks good, so I have had chemo the last two weeks. Only three more left!!! And guess what! My BFF may be in town and able to come with me next week!

She’s coming into town this Sunday — correction — her whole family is coming into town Sunday. I’m over the moon excited. I have two soul sisters from Pennsylvania, and they are both coming with their families in the next few weeks and it makes me ridiculously happy. Friends are the best!!

So, I have no idea what I have shared and not shared with you, but currently the hair on my head is growing but I’ve lost my eyebrows and eyelashes. My awesome sister just sent me like a million pairs of fake eyelashes. Let me tell you, these suckers are tough to put on! I successfully donned a pair yesterday, with mixed reviews on the make up along with it. Today, I tried again, but my eyes were watering, and one of the lashes started falling off, so they came off early. So no pics yet. I’ll get one when I perfect the application.

My mood swings from frustration to acceptance. But I only have three more chemo treatments. So I can hang on for these next three weeks. I just need to rest when I feel like I need to rest (which, honestly, is most of the time).

Please bear with me … I will try to update again. My brain is pretty much fried, though, so it gets a little difficult to pull words together. And sometimes I completely lose my train of thought.
