Hello again. The photo I have attached with this blog is myself and my friend Lindy. She has taken me to a few treatments. I am doing well. I am mostly bald now. Which isn't all that bad.....it is nice and cool for the summer. However I do have to watch so my head doesn't get sun burnt. I am over half way in my treatments. I just started the 3rd cycle last week. So I have a total of 4 individual doses left. I am getting there. The side effects of the chemo haven't been terrible. They are more annoying than anything. I get very frustrated because my body just doesn't want to cooperate with me sometimes. Mainly because it is tired. It is hard sometimes to just sit an watch everyone else. I am tired of being sick and tired. However I know that I have to let my body recover, and if I do not I am the only one that is going to suffer the consequences.
I am getting ready to do an Ovarian Cancer event at St. Francis University on July 14th. During the event I will speak about my journey and also sit on a discussion panel. I am really looking forward to this event.
I have been keeping myself busy. Doing a lot of reading. Both of my Aunt's from Arizona were here, well one is still here. Getting to spend time with them is always fun. We have had graduation parties as well. Congratualtions to the graduating classes of 2012. I am prepping for treatment this week, and then I have a week off! YAY!!!!! Thanks for reading!
