I cannot tell you the difference that this makes in how I feel and my overall disposition. I feel so much better! Yeah, sure, chemo #4 shot me down and I had my bad days, but now when I start feeling better I can build on that. Momentum baby!

All the nurses got a kick out of it.
The other thing that made a difference this time is that my momma was here again. My Mom is the best Mom there is and at the last minute got on a plane and came here all the way from Texas to take care of me. And to let Tboz in and out and in and out and in and out....good gracious that dog was almost hurt during the last treatment. She was really getting on my last nerve with the in out in out in out all day. I love her, but this is really hard to tolerate when you feel like you can't get off the damn couch.
So to wrap up my chemotherapy experience - it totally sucks, but it is doable. Side effects are totally manageable and not at all as it is portrayed on TV (at least for my regimen).
Today is Day 9 post treatment #4. Day 10 is the day my blood counts are lowest. Once I get past Day 10, I will declare myself a winner winner chicken dinner and will no longer allow myself to feel like a victim of this stupid disease. From now on, I have more control of how I treat this disease. There is certainly still more to come, but I am not going to get my ass kicked trying to treat it.
OPERATION REBUILD MELINDA CAN COMMENCE! Yippity dooooo daaahhhhh!
