Chemo N°6 completed!!

Finally, my blood got its act together and my oncologist OKed chemo number six. Instead of it being three weeks after chemo number five, it was actually eight weeks after, so long that my hair started growing back!

It went off without a hitch, no drama, I was close to the washroom, did some crocheting, watched some Housewives, and it was over.

Back when chemos were all on track, I had planned on taking the kids out for a Japanese dinner (or if COVID was still in play, to order in) to celebrate my end of active treatment. But that night, with both legs tightly bandaged up to the hip, and a diet that would have allowed whitefish, chicken, steamed rice and not much else, a night out was the last thing on my mind. Celebrating is a ways down the road, and for now there’s a lot of work to do to mitigate the side effects and late effects of this cancer treatment.
