As I expected, I did not have to do the 46hr. pump again due to the Neuropathy in my hands. It isn't really bad but the fact it has not gone away is not good. We did the same chemo as last time. We did not talk about clinical trials the past week. I have scans this week so as soon as they can get them done, I'm hoping to get my results Monday, February 9th. Keep praying for positive results. Saturday we attended a benefit concert for me the was put on by Sentimental Journey. They were awesome. If you have a chance, you have to check them out where ever they play. Thank you so much Sentimental Journey! My hands today are a bit swollen but not bad at all. I'm able to open my own water bottles today, yeah!!! I've been pretty tired the past two days but not nauseous. I was given a new nausea pill called Emend (recommended by Susan Turley's brother, thank you). I was not nearly as nauseous this go around and I never did get sick on Friday!!!! I'm excited to have asked my doctors if I could push back my next treatment so Deron and I could make it to Deanna's biggest tournament of the year in Las Vegas over Valentines weekend. They told me that important family events can not be missed due to chemo. I need to run my life...not the chemo. That made me feel so good about asking. Therefore, my next treatment will be February 20th. I go get a massage from Sue tomorrow to help get the chemo and toxins running out of my body. Wednesday I have the genetics testing appointment. I'm not sure what to expect. This testing will determine if I'm just the random 10% who just get cancer or if I now have the genetic line that my children will need to be screened in their teenage years and every few years after.
Thank you to all the women who continue to bring dinners to my family that I was able to spend the evening with last Thursday night. I had a blast meeting you all and hope to be able to get together next month.
I just finished watching to Super Bowl game and it was a nail biter. I was so hoping that our AZ Cardinals would pull off that win but it just didn't work. Congrats to the Cards for an amazing game played! I'm off to get in bed. Goodnight! As always...keep the prayers coming...our gracious God hears us.
