Day 129

Went to yoga today. I am sore. I guess I'm a little out of shape for power yoga. Took a two hour nap too. That was amazing. So tomorrow I try again. I'm a little tired of being stuck in the arm. Let's hope I am finally ready so Friday I can get his over with. I need closure.

Day 128

We had a wonderful Christmas. Spent some really nice time with family. Tomorrow is supposed to be my last treatment. My counts have got to be good by now. Almost there.
Check out the new coffee mug Santa brought me.
This just in...still too low for treatment. We'll try again for Friday. Disappointed again.

Day 122

I was hoping today was my last chemo.  No such luck.  I showed up at 8am for lab because my counts were really low yesterday.  They called me in and I was all ready to go...took my prescriptions and everything.  Then they came in and told me my counts were to low to have chemo.  I guess it would put me at too much risk of infection.  Not enough white cells to fight things off.  So I'm delayed one week.  I guess on the bright side I should be feeling pretty well for Christmas and I won't have to worry as much about seeing so many people around the holidays and getting sick.  I also had a really fun day today hanging out with Rob and Tammy.  We had a nice lunch.  I had a couple of drinks which was a treat.  :)
So there you have it.  All is not lost.

Day 116

Home sweet home.  All went went.  I didn't need a transfusion, so that was kind of a relief.  I came home today to dinner and this Yule Log.  :)

Day 115

In the hospital. Just finished my last dose of methotrexate. So far so good.
Looks like I will be getting a blood transfusion in the morning since my counts are really low. That should put a spring in my step to get through the last treatment. Thanks to everyone for your positive thoughts today. Pretty sure that's why I'm doing so well.

Got the tree up this weekend.  I still hava a decent amount of stuff to get done for Chirstmas, but thankfully there is online shopping.

Day 110

Long week. Neulasta kicked my ass. Starting to feel better and getting ready to fight the fight for the next few weeks. So close.

Day 107

It's the final countdown.

I am getting so close to the end of this now.  How many days do I have left?  Let's see...15!  Until my last treatment, that is.  I have to go into the hospital a week from tomorrow for methotrexate and then a week after that it's my last outpatient.  Whoohoo.
This past weekend was so busy.  It was Ridley's forth birthday.  We had a great time.  The party was at the Little Gym in Danvers.  All the kids were so well behaved and Ridley scored some seriously cool birthday gifts.  I can't believe he is four.
The past couple of days have been tiring.  I have been a little wasted from the treatment last week.  It is so hard to get any rest when you have two small kids.  There is very little down time.  If my parents weren't here I don't know what I would do.  I was able to nap today while my mom watched the kids.  I was out of my mind tired.  I really can't wait for this to be over.  How many times have I said that?  :)

Kara and Mark brought us dinner Sunday night.  Kara finally got to meet Violet.
