Well crap on a cracker. No chemo today because my counts were all low but more specifically, my platelets were crazy low. So what’s that mean? It means my 12th Taxol will be next Thursday as long as my counts go back up. And then that means the AC will begin on 12/29. It also means I need to be very careful to avoid injury. So, like, no walking into fire hydrants and shit.
The good part about the shift is that I won’t be sick on Christmas and can be fully present with my family. The bummer is that everything is pushed back a little. But I guess this is the universe’s way of making me take a break. To try and filter some of what has accumulated in my body. Another bonus is that I get to spend some quality time with my husband at our favorite coffee shop- minus being connected to a pump. It was a super shocker though, because I have been feeling fantastic lately. So now I’m choosing to happy instead of my initial feelings of frustration.
I’ve recently added a new member to my rad lady posse. I met with an energy healer yesterday at my acupuncturist’s office. Another person who I was meant to cross paths with. She was just what I needed at that time.
Daily, I am in awe of the strong, inspirational, and incredibly smart women I have met in my life. And I’m not just talking recently, although this diagnosis has really put me in touch with some gems, I’m talking throughout my life. The feminine energy in my life is unmistakable and mighty. Always has been. And if you are questioning if I mean you, I do.
