I’m just ready to feel better

   I think it’s been about a week since I’ve updated on here and I hadn’t even thought about it until I got a letter in the mail commenting on how they have been following my story from the beginning. I’m happy report that for the most part the nausea and vomiting have begun to subside.  I’m able to eat a little bit again. I’m not gaining weight back yet, but I haven’t lost more so I’ll take what I can get!  Unfortunately, the pain has become very intense and probably the worst it has ever been. So back to new medications to try and get it under control.  I’m so thankful for a soaking tub to help relieve some of the pain, although optune and bathtubs are a royal pain.

    Being the high anxiety person that I am, you would think that I would be a hot mess right now. My next full body scan is next week. These scans are awful because they take about 2 hours and you aren’t allowed to move or you have to start over. We were able to come home a week go because my local oncologist administers my chemo through my brain, so we will stay here and receive that treatment and then only have to travel out of town once every 3 weeks to receive immunotherapy. I won’t really know how either treatment is working until my next scan in a couple weeks. We haven’t had a scan since we saw that the cancer spread so praying that we are moving in the right direction. Although I have to keep reminding myself it’s not in my time…it’s in His time. In His plan, not mine.

  4. So thankful for your update and you being able to receive your chemo treatments here. There is nothing like being in your own home surrounded by the ones you love and your own bed when you want to rest. Prayerfully these new meds will ease the pain and give you some rest. Prayers continue for healing and for a good scan. God bless you and give you His Peace.

  13. I hate to hear about the pain – I wish they could give you something/DO something to help. I also wish you had a hot tub – believe me, you can get your WHOLE body (minus head/optune) in it (unlike trying to get in the bathtub and having the girls and your feet out of the water lol). Spas helps SO much with pain (that’s why it was created many moons ago actually). Praying for awesome results from your full body scan next week. I have it on my calendar and will be awaiting results. Hugs hon.
