Tomorrow is my blood work and Dr. appointment day. Wednesday is my chemo day. I noticed today that I am experiencing a sense of dread about this treatment. That is new. It's nagging at the back of my mind, and causing an uneasy feeling in the pit of my stomach.
Nothing about this cancer trip has been fun. Nothing has caused joy and celebration. Still, each treatment has been a step toward completion. It has just been something that I do...a part of my schedule...no big deal. Every other Wednesday, I go for chemo.
After the last time (my first Taxol treatment) causing such intense pain, though, I don't wanna go. It could be completely different and not be so bad this time. I realize this. The first two A/C treatments were as expected, the third was a cake walk, and the fourth put me in the hospital. That means that the first Taxol putting me down for 4 days does NOT mean the second one will.
It's such a short time. The chemo portion of my treatment will all be over in 4-6 weeks. I can do anything for 4-6 weeks. I just don't like the feeling that it's leaving in my stomach. I bet I'll feel a lot better when Wednesday comes and goes. Once it's done, it's done.
You can't dread something that's over, right? (:
