~6th and Last Chemo is REALLY DOING ME IN~

~LAST CHEMO IS SUCKING......BIG TIME BUT I STILL HAVE MY HUMOR~


(the above chair reminds me of the chemo chair I sit in....only the one above is much prettier)

WELL....They warned me, the final last CHEMO TREATMENT #6 might catch up with me and boy is it ever. I have been puking since this morning and if I am not doing that, I am sleeping. THIS SUCKS....I honestly thought I would fly thru this one but it's from all the months of POISON going into my body and it's just finally catching up with me. I AM IN THE CHEMO FOG/with CHEMO BRAIN.

My veins are shredded in my left arm. That isn't a pleasant feeling and my left arm is sore from this last chemo. My head hurts (still got those migraines) but my mouth sores are at bay right now....I almost hate to write that in case they show up in a few days.

So, there I am, please know I did get lots of pictures (BOY AM I FAT!!!!) of my last chemo treatment and I will get them posted on my blog in a week or longer (probably longer) because I have no idea how this is all going to go.

GOOD NEWS....I start on my daily estrogen/chemo drug that I have to take for 5 YEARS, on November 1st....lets hope my body can take that one.....or lets not borrow any trouble...LOL

ALL MY LOVE....Amy

(PS....Carole from http://scoundrelsandrogues.blogspot.com/ called me today, OH MY FRIENDS, she is still in the hospital and will be until at least next week. They had to take out 3 inches of her spine, her surgery lasted WAY WAY longer than they thought, over 7 and 1/2 hours and her spine they said was like angel hair pasta, just a mess. She won't be able to walk for at least 1 to 2 years and she is in a lot of pain. They tried to get her up to walk and she could only take one step before the pain was so bad that the doctors told the nurses to LEAVE HER IN BED!!!! We are all pulling and praying for you Carole, just get better and we can't wait to see you posting again)

You are right, that chair does remind you of the chemo chairs, minus the iv poles..I went with my brother in law to one of his sessions.
I hope you're starting to feel better from your LAST session.

10/15 : Morning Amy, I hope you are feeling better with each new day. I woke up at 5:00am this morning, an hour before my alarm went off. The first thing that came to mind was YOU, and immediately said a prayer for you, for Leanne and all the others battling cancer. May God watch over you and fill you with strength.
Hugs- Nancy
