It has been 6 days since my last chemo treatment. I have a few more days until the upswing will begin. Nothing is new with this treatment. My side effects happen almost exactly to the day as they have in the past few treatments and since I stay on top of all my medications I am able to control the effects. The only thing that is new this time around is that Ansley, my 6 year old, has been keeping me company during the day as she has been sick since Monday night with a fever, cough, and sore throat. As a Mom I just want to give her everything she needs to make her feel better and give her snuggles. But unforuntatly I cannot do any of that because my immune system would not like this right now. She has her couch and I have mine. She understands that she and I need to keep our distance. In another six weeks I plan to give my kids so many hugs and kisses they will have had enough. Here’s hoping that no one else in our household gets sick including me!!
I am counting down the hours until Allen comes home tomorrow night from his business trip!!
Thank you Mom and Dad for taking care of me (and Ansley) this week!
