Last Friday my staples came out and everything seems to be okay. The wound is healing up nicely. Still trying to get used to having this thing in my chest. I thought by now (two weeks) it might feel like another rib or something, but it still feels foreign! Maybe when the bruises are gone.
Yesterday I went to Toronto with a friend to see the doctor there for my 6-8 week check-up. My counts are all good and where they should be, so I'm considered in remission again! I will still have to stay on the chemo though which is the part that makes you tired and weak. They don't want to stop the drugs like last time I went into remission, because it will just make it that much harder to fight the disease down again when it comes back. I'll probably be on chemo for two weeks and than off for two weeks - a chance to feel a little like my old self and then energy sapped again for two weeks. We'll see how it goes! Anyway, it was a long day again yesterday, we didn't get home until 10pm! I had a good nap today!!
Other than that nothing here is really changed. I hope to start drama with the gr.7&8's next week. I'm looking forward to that again. Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine and fall temp's!!
Take care, Sharon
