Taxol 2 tomorrow!

If all goes well, in 48 hours, I will have half of my Taxol infusions behind me! Tomorrow, they will take slowly too. They say if you are going to have a reaction, it will happen in the first two rounds. The first one went fine, so here's hoping that this one goes well to. I have to say, everyone told me I would like Taxol much better than AC, and they did not lie. The experience has just been so much different. I am so glad they do it that way. You get the worst over with first.

I am finally starting to feel more normal. I was able to exercise yesterday. I am sleeping better at night (most of the time anyway). I am able to eat normal foods again. It's so refreshing! Starting to feel better means I can start to do those things I need to do in order to get healthy and keep this disease far away.

Taxol has its own challenges of course (I mean, after all, it is still chemo), but it pales in comparison to AC. The good news is today is October 5 (Happy 75th birthday Aunt Bern!). One month from today, if all goes well, I will be in my ridiculous extremely tired day for the LAST TIME! Yippeeeeeeee!


  1. I am so thrilled for you that everything is going smoothly for you with the Taxol-besides the fact that it is chemo therapy of course!!!!! You always amaze me; and this post is no different. My continued love, support, prayers, and strength continue to be with you. You will do absolutely fantastic on Friday-I just know it!!!!!! Love ya!!!!!
