Kicking cancer's ass - day 54
I've said it before and I will say it again - I love fall! After a summer spent in west Texas, the cooler temperatures are more than welcome. I love long sleeves, fuzzy socks and hot tea. I love football and baking and comfort food. The one thing I DON'T like right now is the stupid mouth sore that chemo gave me. Despite doing everything right (taking the right supplements, brushing after every meal, rinsing several times a day, etc) my tongue HURTS. And of course it's right on the side next to my teeth, so every time I chew or swallow = instant pain. Even the "magic mouthwash" that my doctor prescribed isn't helping. I know having completed half of my chemo regimen, I could have it so much worse, but sometimes even a small thing can seem huge. Woe is me.
