Hey Everyone! What did you do this weekend? I had the most amazing one! We flew to New York for a weekend of shopping, eating and seeing plays. Oh, wait…that was in my dream!!! It was the weekend after my chemo treatment, so I was most definitely at home. I got through number seven, with just a few minor side effects. I am starting to lose my eyelashes and my eyebrows are getting thinner. Chemo… it’s the gift that keeps on giving! I know I can glue on some lashes, but the eyebrows are another story. I think you look sick when you lose them, and I don’t feel sick! I am also the most tired I have ever been in my life. I was told the more treatments I had, the more tired I would become. I took three naps last week, and slept for three hours each time!
I did get a little outing that was well needed. My sweet friend Laura, came and picked Granny (me) up on Saturday afternoon for a drive. I am serious!!! We drove around for a couple of hours and just gabbed! I am trying to stay out of crowds (and in Dallas, that’s just about everywhere). I am just so close to the finish line that I don’t want to compromise myself.
The outfit I am wearing was just for the pictures. I could make up something and tell you I went to lunch with friends, but it would be a big fat lie. I would have been face down in my plate! I had to come home and lie down after they were shot. Sunglasses remained on for a reason!
Hope you all have a great start to this Halloween week!

Oh, it makes me sad to read this. You are right about the eyes, and I feel for you. My eyelashes grew back, but I still pencil my brows (though some of that comes with age). Just remember, your beauty is within. This too shall pass!
But though that sounds nice, it’s a bunch of crap. Why can’t they invent a chemo that will do it’s stuff but leave hair alone.

I wish you did not have to deal with this awful chemo..it must be so painful and hard on you. I hope that you feel better soon and that you can recover completely from this illness. I am happy that in some part of the States you are allowed by law to smoke therapeutic marijuana to alleviate the pain and hope you do..
