Tomorrow is Day 21 and chemo #2 is on Thursday, October 23 at 11 am. IF, my blood counts are up to normal. Which I think they are because I am feeling pretty good.
I've found that if I take 30 minutes of my lunch to have a rest/nap, I can make it through the entire afternoon without yawning every 2 minutes. Today I didn't get the rest and I started yawning precisely at 3 pm. Too funny.
Please pray for no nausea after Chemo #2. While I'm not scared or concerned about the actual chemo treatment (and the needle), my anxiety is elevated for the "afterwards". It was so bad after the first chemo, I can't go through that again. Trying to keep positive and believe for the best ever chemo session!
I will receive a booster shot on Friday. This should help with the 15 out of 18 side effects of neutropenia that I had. I am believing that with this shot, week #2 will be a breeze.
For those who have breast cancer and have stumbled across my blog - please know that what happened to me after Chemo #1 isn't what everyone experiences. Some have their chemo on Fridays and go back to work on Mondays. They may be a little tired, but do not have the 32 side effects or neutropenic fever that I had. Everyone is unique (and some of us are tooooo unique!).
