I guess I can say that I feel very blessed to have the amazing arsenal of doctors taking care of me. They are all so wonderful. I started chemotherapy in January. the treatments weren't too too bad. I had good days and really bad days, but I really tried to focus on healing and getting better. It took about 3 weeks after chemo for my hair to start falling out. That will freak a girl out!. Standing in the shower watching my golden locks fall to the drain reminded me a movie. even though, I knew it was all going to be gone, it still didn't seem like it was mine. A very dreamy and shocking feeling. Other than hair loss, I lost all sense of taste . My sense of smell was amplified by about 10000%, I could smell everthing and most of the smells made me sick. YAK!!!! no cooking for cancer patients!!!! I was very very blessed with my first treatment. I reached remission by April, was taken off of the taxol drugs, my hair started coming back and I was feeling wonderful. I still have maintenance chemo every 3 weeks and take hormonals to keep my ovaries shut down. Hot flashes suck but are very much a part of my life. I was feeling good, back to living a pretty normal life, feeling like I was kickin cancer's ass
and then I crashed my car. Yep, you guessed it, that nasty cancer is now in my brain!!!! WTF!!!!! 10 months after the whole thing started, here we go again!!!
