They say at this point the most important thing is radiation so I try not to stress when I don't get chemo but the chemo is suppose to help boost radiation so I can't help by stress when I don't get to get my chemo. Besides, my chemo nurses are awesome and it makes my time there go by so well!
I have also been lucky enough to get not one but three hand knitted hats this week to help keep my head warm. I'm lucky to have friends and family who think about me. I know there are several more hats on the way and I can't wait, so excited to see them!
I asked him if there was a max amount of radiation I could have. He said there is a max amount of treatments but never really told me what that max amount is. He said there were many variables, such as risks to other areas around the radiation site, size of the tumor (the larger the tumor the less the number or radiation treatments allowed), and other factors. He reminded me again that I am too skinny and it makes it harder to read scans but said I don't need to gain wait, he will just keep reading the scans how they are. I'm really not much skinnier than pre-cancer so I'm not too worried about that. I've had a great appetite with radiation for the most part. Worst symptoms are achy hips and being tired. I feel like I could have it much worse. I'm super awake right now because they give me a steroid via IV with this set of chemo and it keeps me up. I am up like three hours later than I normally am.
We are also beyond blessed at all the donations our family received on the fundraiser that was setup, I can't wait to take Wylee to the indoor watermark for a weekend and whatever other fun things are planned by the wonderful ladies organizing this adventure! http://www.youcaring.com/help-a-neighbor/support-erica-frazier-and-family-/234458
