Chemo Round 2 –

Well, today I had chemo.  Usually it’s on Thursday, but tomorrow they’re having some sort of meeting.  Before I had chemo, I met with the doctor.  He said that my white count was good and that I wouldn’t need any shots this time!  Yay, I am so relieved!  I had the two drugs today and they went in smoothly.  usually I have an easy time on chemo day but feel pretty bad the following day.  Last chemo, I had an easy time with side-effects.  Today I have had some “flushing”, a rush of heat to areas of my body.  It is such a strange feeling!   I have already taken some anti-nausea drugs and hope to keep the “horse in the barn” as one of my friends says!  We’ll see how tonight and tomorrow fare, but for now, I feel pretty good.  Tired, but good.

Some fun news…Kai has been peeing in the potty at school and he even pooped in it today!  He comes home very proud of his stickers and smiley faces!  🙂   He’s also peed at home, and continues to be more interested in earning stickers for his chart.

Tomorrow we are meeting to get pre-approved for a home loan.  Please pray that we get a low rate and can start making offers on houses!  It is really exciting and scary at the same time.

Thanks for “listening” to me and checking in.  Things here keep moving along.  Many days it’s really hard to even think that I have a disease in my body because I look and feel fine.  I have been getting sad and depressed some days and would really appreciate your prayers as I begin to seek help for this.

Kai is calling and I need to go.  Sol had an emergency come up at work and had to take off.  He said it could take between 5 minutes and 5 hours.  With computers…you never know.

Love,

Monica

    I pray God’s blessings on your home search!! It is exciting!

    Love you,
