Today's the Day

Almost everyone has decorated their blogs in beautiful fall colors but I'm leaving my blue skies. Mostly because I've not been able to go out and take any pictures and it has been so dry here, we don't have many colors, the leaves just fell off and we have some naked trees.

But then I figured I still needed the blue sky for a while. Blue sky is a priority for me right now, so I'm staying blue for now.

Today is the day. One more. And then my body can start to heal and perhaps I'll get a little hair pretty soon, and nose hairs would be nice too. Here's the plan. This treatment will be nice to me. Nothing odd will happen, the side effects will be mild and I can start to get a little exercise. My legs are weak, the muscles don't want to work so well. I got to work on that.

Today I get a drug called Taxol. It is one he added starting the second treatment and they serve a sedative and benadryl with it. So it knocks me out. I usually sleep through it and then come home and sleep through the rest of it and sometimes I sleep the next day through it. I'm not sure why they do that but they do. So, in a few hours I'll be sitting in the recliner and getting my last hook up. So hold on body, we're going to get through this yet!

To all of you, have a good day and know how much I appreciate you all. You all follow me around like the Verizon commercial, carrying me through it all and I can always hear you now.

Yipee! Hooray! When you wake from the coctail they give you, it will all be behind you. In a few days, it will seem like a bad dream.

And you will begin new steps. Think about how you want your hair to come back. Do you want it curly, dark, gray, red perhaps.

You are quite a trooper!

Blessings to you today.
