Tired As A Mother

It’s finally chilly enough to wear this sweatshirt and I am pumped. Or tired. Yeah, I’m tired. But also pumped. Coffffffeeeeeeeee. 

I am not a fan of the warm weather in general but especially lately, all I have wanted was for this girl to catch a break so she could wear enough layers to cover up her C Section pooch! ☺️
Today marks my 8th Taxol treatment. Every appointment, I am asked if I have numbness or tingling in my hands or feet. Every appointment, I am beyond thankful that I can say no. Those side effects were a concern for me, I have heard the horror stories- the pain, not being able to walk or pick things up, the fact that it can last for several years after treatment. So, life is good. 

Side note-Next week, chemo will be on Wednesday instead of my regular Thursday because of Thanksgiving. πŸ¦ƒ (run turkeys!) 

Last night I FaceTimed with my “crystal girl”. At least that’s how I refer to her 😊 I have followed her Instagram for a while now and have a beautiful bracelet made by her. (@iamblaireporter) Along with my bracelet came a personalized reading. She is amazingly talented in so many ways. We have been meaning to touch base to discuss a man that came to her while she was completing my order and we finally connected last night. Crazy, right? 

I believe that everyone comes in and out of our lives for a reason and she is no exception. I felt an immediate connection with her. Needless to say, she’s definitely in the the Rad Lady Posse. This girl is truly talented and gifted. Blaire gave me the most precious gift though, a visit from my mom and dad. It was beyond special- I had chills, happy tears, a couple of sad tears, and so many memories filled my head. 

I headed to yoga right after speaking with her and I was on such a high! It felt fantastic! I also got to use my new yoga mat which was the cherry on top. It’s like buttah. 

Fun Fact- no hair means no need to adjust your pony tail mid pose. The perks. 

I am currently sitting on a bench at Kaiser waiting for another appointment, meeting so many interesting peeps who want to share the sunshine. No need to worry but I am getting an ultrasound on my abdomen. I have had some pain on the right side near my ovary and the Drs just want to play it safe. Most likely, it’s just my body still healing from the Fallopian tube removal. Or maybe some scar tissue from that surgery or perhaps my endometriosis. I will report back when I have some news. Good vibes πŸ™ŒπŸ»
