Okay! It has been like almost 4 months since I posted. When I learned about my Cancer diagnosis I told a lot of people to check out my blog and I would keep you all updated on what was going on...well, I didn't do it! Sorry! I think I am in a bit of denial. If I have to talk about it or write about it then it is true, and I really don't want it to be true and so I guess I like living in my happy little world called "Denial". I started chemo treatments in December the week before Christmas and just finished my third treatment as of Jan. 31st. I have been tolerating it fairly well, I have a few bad days and then after about a week I feel almost back to normal, so then I have 2 good weeks. I started losing my hair about 2 weeks after my first treatment. My sister Marilyn shaved my head while we were on a trip to Palm Springs (I guess I will be brave and add a photo of it). Then my daughter-in-law Melinda shaved it even closer the next week. So I have been bald since the middle of January (I wear lots of warm beanies). I did purchase a wig however I don't even think I have a photo of me with it on. I really have been able to just carry on with a fairly normal life.
I found out today that I am neutropenic (my white blood cell count is too low). That means I have to stay away from crowds and anyone who is sick. I am not allowed to eat raw fresh fruits or vegetables (I am not happy about that!!!!!). So...I figured now is the time to catch up on my blog because I basically will really be stuck at home (unless I want to walk around wearing a funny looking mask). I also guess that I can now do some much needed deep house cleaning (that is if I have the energy). We shall see about that!
I wish I had great and amazing inspirational thoughts to add to this post, but I really don't get those in my weak brain very often! Anyway, I am not really feeling very inspired tonight! So, I will write more at a later time when I feel a little more positive.
However, I do want to thank all of you for your cards, letters, kind words, food, flowers, plants, prayers, fasting, and faith in my behalf! You don't know how much I appreciate it because I can't express my feelings sufficiently! Please know that I feel your love and support. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Love - Kristine
