Well, yesterday was my last day of chemo for a while, or at least until the MRI shows how the tumors are doing. (I am just hoping they aren’t growing.) The doctor doesn’t like how the chemo’s taking the wind out of my sails. I do not like how it‘s affecting me either, but there are things I will & will not miss. I will miss Nurse Tish & the way she always had a kind word & a smile. One thing I will not miss is being stabbed by syringes filled with God-knows-what. No more beige recliner or machine that beeps when my IV is running low. All in all, I have mixed emotions, but the finer points of quitting chemo outweigh the bad.
Now it’s time to whine. My sister & her family are coming up today. I’ll be glad to see them, but I HATE being unable to join in on the conversations. I totally hate the isolation hearing loss brings. That’s why I enjoy Facebook & Google chats so much because you don’t have to be able to hear. I LOVE my chat friends :-). It all boils down to feeling alone, even when surrounded by people. That’s today’s whine. Until next time
