HOORAY!!! for Today

I had my last round of the BAD chemo today. I saw the Dr. first. My oncologist is on vacation so I saw one of the others. I want my Dr. Crane back...LOL Anyway he told me I was anemic but not bad enough to give a blood transfusion so he said the fatigue would probably be bad again this time. They gave me 100% of the dosage and didn't cut it down. That means I took 100% each time so those lingering bad cells should be DEAD. Dr. Lang said to go home and just take it easy. He sure doesn't know my personality. I can only stay down so long and then I have to do somthing. I guess I will shuffle my time around but know that sleep will be approaching in the next couple of days.
I do get a break as I don't start the next kind of chemo until June 27 because of the TAC Seminar. I hopefully will be some strength up for that. They say the Taxol is like taking an 80 proof shot of alcohol straight into the artery. They told me not to drive myself. This should be very interesting since I don't drink. My DH said he wondered if they paid for rehab after the chemo....LOL
I have been stamping for Seminar but don't want to share the stuff since it is for there. I have also been doing some things for Paper Wings which is for Angels Only also. I need to play with just fun stuff so I can share. Maybe if the fatigue isn't so bad that I can play in my little corner of the basement. After all it is in the 90's here and I am staying in...the heat zaps me fast.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks for coming back and reading my updates.
