Today has been a rough day for me. I have been tender sore all day. It is just basically uncomfortable to breath in or move around much. I am surprised by the amount of tenderness and pain from getting the port implanted. When I look at the area it just grosses me out. I think it grosses me out for two reasons 1) I can see it sticking underneath my skin and 2) I know that it means chemo is around the corner. I was hoping to be more mobile with more energy following the surgery but I am not and this is frustrating to me. I feel that I have a few days left before chemo and I wanted to enjoy the days, not being couped up at home uncomfortable and exhausted. Oh well. There is nothing I can do about it. I think if the sun were to shine today my spirits would feel better. Here’s hoping to a better day tomorrow.
Monday morning my Mom and I will be attending a chemo education class at the hospital. My Dad arrives Wednesday night and will be here along with Mom for a week and a half to help out. One of Allen’s biggest work weeks will be the week after my first chemo treatment and so both my parents will be here with me and the kids. The kids activities don’t stop just because their mother has breast cancer. I am glad Allen will be there with me during my chemo treatments. He has been there by my side every step of the way.
