It is THE week

Posted on

We have made it to the LAST week of chemo, officially.  I am officially on a countdown to the LAST time I will hopefully ever have to have chemotherapy enter my veins.  Here is to the final countdown of days.

I have never in my life wanted the days, hours or minutes to go so fast in my life.  As my dad said tonight, he has never wanted a summer to be over more in his life.  I can’t agree more.  I have wanted the summer to be done before it even started, as sad as that is.  I have been waiting for September 1st since May 17th!  You know that I have been crossing off the days on my bathroom calendar for the past few months, to see that there are only 3 days left feels amazing!  I can’t wait to tick off today- then there will be only 2 days!

In other news, I have developed neuropathy in my feet.  I am not 100% sure, but am pretty sure that’s what it is.  My legs started to hurt on Friday, but since the party on Saturday it has been worse.  I wasn’t sure if I should chalk it up to standing for 4 hours, or just the fucking neuropathy.  I have been totally forgetful the past few weeks about taking my glutamine, so I am really kicking myself for that.  We have to take glutamine because it is supposed to prevent neuropathy.  Oops.  Anyway, today the tingly sensation got a bit worse in my left foot.  I am praying that it doesn’t get worse.  The good news is that it does go away apparently.  Here’s to hoping!

More complaints from me.  I feel like I am getting a cold.  My nose is runny and I feel post nasal coming on.  This is the last thing that I need right now.  I need to be healthy for Thursday and so can’t afford to get to Tower and have my blood checked to be told my white cells are too low.  I will strangle somebody and it might be Rod.  Don’t worry- I call that fucker for the last time tomorrow, just to fuck with him.

So I leave you with the countdown of 3 days!  (I am too lazy to count the exact time.)

  1. Jessie, my dad had a lot of neuropathy in his hands and feet after intense chemo and a stem cell transplant. The good news is it’s gone today! The bad news is it took some time but I’m sure you’ve been forced to be patient many times on this adventure. Congrats on your last chemo, I’m so glad you can put this behind you in just three more days. Let me know if you want me to ask my dad what therapies he did to heal his neuropathy, I know he tried many!
