Taking It From The Top
I wanted to start this blog so other women, family and friends could see a real perspective into the life of cancer. Not just what I am experiencing, but what others may experience or see loved ones experience themselves. I am a mom of two girls (Kaylee 10, and Sophie 4) and married for 11 years this year to my husband John Marc. We live in Rolla, MO and all of my treatments will be here at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. I was diagnosed on January 16, 2013, at 5:15 p.m. A moment in time I believe the Earth stopped turning, and my heart stopped beating. Even if it was for a split second. This blog was started January 21, 2013 at 6:22 p.m. when I was ready to speak. (and when my S.I.L. Claire was ready to help with the tech stuff:) I hope you enjoy taking this journey with me. I WILL beat Breast Cancer! I did not want to turn to Google for my answers, I wanted to find my own. These are them:

So I had my weekly appt. with the oncologist today. White blood was at 1.9, so better than I thought. I puked once there and couldn’t wait to get home and get on my jammies again.

I was told all about my next chemo where we switch drugs of Taxol.



It.was.not.good. Lets see I have to take 5 steroids at 7pm the night before chemo, and 5 more at 3am before. Sounds like fun right? Oh and to add to all the fun the Taxol takes 2-3 hours to go into the IV. Lets not forget about the hour of pre meds.

So today was crappy yet again. Keep looking for the silver lining…must need to shine a bit brighter I guess for me to see it. I wanted to give an honest take on cancer…this is as honest as it gets. Cancer sucks…period.
