Saturday in Bed with Thoughts and Questions

It was a busy week. Chemo week always is. Mom went with me for my infusion this time, which made the time go faster. We did a good job turning it into an excuse to eat out, too. We are the two best at that.

Friday went OK. My back and hips hurt, but it didn't move into my legs until today, so I made it nearly 8 hours at work before bailing on them. So far, it looks like I'll be in bed most of the weekend again. It sucks, but there's only one more after this. I have an appointment with my oncologist this coming Wednesday, and boy do I have questions this time!

When will they take my port out? When will I see the radiation oncologist to decide if I'm having radiation? If I don't have radiation (and I probably will,) how long do I have to wait for reconstruction? If I do have radiation, how much? 

That's just the tip of the iceberg.  I've only concentrated on chemo all this time. Now that chemo is nearly done, I'm ready to move forward, and I want answers! LOL For the next couple of days, though, I'll be in bed with pills and a heating pad. *sigh*

One more to go! WOOHOO! Rest all you can, you've earned it.

Are you taking questions from the audience? I'm sure I could come up with a bunch!

Love you!

Just concentrating on the chemo at first was enough. Hope the next few days go a little easier than you expect. ~Mary

I wish you could have spent the day outside, even in a chaise lounge! It was a beautiful day in your neighborhood.
