It has been two hundred and fifty days since my first chemo treatment. That means I have been actively fighting cancer for that long. If you think about it like that, it really is overwhelming, and the main reason why I have to just take one day at a time. Today marks my 20th radiation treatment... still have a ways to go, but I'm ticking them off day by day.
I haven't had any problems to report up until now, but I had to mention the increase in bad headaches when I saw Dr. Au today. I've always been a headache person and had some real doozies during chemo, but things seemed to have settled down until I started radiation. Since then, it seems more often than not I wake up with a headache, sometimes a really bad headache.
In honor of my mother, who absolutely loves Cinco de Mayo for some reason, and who also appreciates silly humor:
