I had my 6th chemo treatment on Monday and it went well. I am feeling pretty good and resting at home.
It was interesting to learn that my neutrophil level dropped again. Apparently the injection will cause an upward spike and then it will normalize. So I will continue to lay low while germ season is among us.
Here is a little letter I wrote to chemotherapy to say goodbye on Sunday.
Dear Chemotherapy, Tomorrow is our last date. I am grateful to you for shrinking the orange in my chest. Yet I am not happy about losing my hair for a second time. This is a cruel joke. It is one thing to deal with the side effects of you after each date, yet when good things start happening to my body please have some mercy! I don’t let you get me down very often but I have to tell you I am pretty bummed to see my beautiful silver hair thinning! I can get through one last date with you and then happily send you on your way. My cells are ready and armed with their sparkle shields to deflect you and direct you to where you belong. Regards, Cinzia
I am happy to move into the next phase of treatment in the new year. I will know more on Friday.
I sparkle on…one day at a time. 🙂
