Round 3

That's pretty much it.
Chemo #3 is over which means I'm halfway done!!  Yay!!

And because chemo was 10 days ago, that means I'm halfway through the 3-week infusion cycle.  Each cycle, it's taken about a solid week to start to feel decent, and even then 'feeling decent' only means that I MUST nap once a day. 

Today is the third day in a row that I haven't napped, but I might just sneak in a quick one while the sun shines brightly through the kitchen window.  Can't work in the kitchen right now what with that sun, so why not practice some self-care?

Seems like every round of infusion I get a little GI bug, or the chemo just lingers a bit longer than a week and the stomach/gut upset is a manifestation of its perseverance.  A week +  day after infusion I usually wander around trying to get warm and feeling like there's a little fever milling around my person.  I know what to plan for, so it's not bad, but I do feel under the weather for a bit over a week.

Ain't nothing like days 3-5 though, so I count my blessings.

And while this whole cancer thing isn't everything that's gong on in my world, it sure does color it a different shade of reality. 

This too shall pass.
