It’s a fantastic Friday! I had a follow up oncology appointment this morning, I see her very 2 weeks. We went over the usual stuff- how am I feeling, any issues, questions, etc. Then she does an exam. While she was checking my right breast, I could see her smile and I couldn’t help but smile even bigger. She asked me what I thought about the tumor and I sorta shouted from excitement that I think it’s shrinking! She agreed! I am responding well to the chemo so far which makes me so damn happy! It reaffirms that all of this is working and worth it!
Most likely, I will be self administering the shots for my white blood cell count until this chemo is over. But who f*ing cares as long as things keep going in the right direction.
After she left the room, John and I high fived like a couple of pumped up middle schoolers at recess. I knew things felt positive when I woke up this morning!
My drive home was awesome. I blasted 93.5, my favorite radio station – old school rap and hip hop. I’m sure I was a sight- a bald girl, dancing and singing alone in her car. But I didn’t care, I would have invited them in to dance and sing with me!
My brother and his fiancé are here visiting for the weekend so the fun continues. Time to celebrate 😄
