The Good, Bad and Ugly

I have been back and forth to doctors all day yesterday and today.

The Bad - I am officially admitting that I am sick. My oncologist has taken me off all meds for a few days and then revamping some. Chemo is getting cut in half again. I just seem to be highly sensitive to it.

The Ugly - my feet....this chemo give hand and foot syndrome. My feet are totally a mess. I can barely walk. I have Bag Balm on them to try and heal them up....mercy, this is painful.

The Good - the chemo is working. My cancer markers have been cut in half and that is with being on and off the meds. My doctor feels I will still get benefit from a lesser dose and I should feel better. Such wonderful news!

That is it today friends. Back to the bed for me....

I have been reading your blog for awhile.I am thrilled that the chemo is working for you. I wonder if diabetic cream would help with your sore feet. I have problems with my feet because I am diabetic.I get cream for my feet at the pharmacy (health care portion). It requires no prescription. Just a thought! I hope they get better soon. Many blessings, Karen

Ceekay...
chemo just has a mind of it's own when it affects different parts of the body that way...
I'm lifting you up dear friend...and asking for relief and total healing...
No one deserves it more.
