10 down, 2 to go.

Two more! Two more! That it! Two more!

Today's chemo was uneventful. The zoloft is helping. My poo-habits are terrible, but I'm doing all I can. And they were happy with "it eventually happens." Coughing is all gone. Overall, its looking positive.

Now, the trick will be how I do over the next 4 or 5 days. Last night (not sure I posted) I was nauseous from Sunday through Wednesday. Blech! Not happy about that, and I think thats at least part of what motivated my pissed off at the world post. So hopefully, the zoloft is working (or at least the placebo effect is, and I'm OK with only a placebo effect), and I won't get as pissy.

But again, only 2 more!!! 4 weeks from today will be my last chemo!!

I see the doctor again on the 16th. Haven't seen him since before the Keys. So, we have a lot to discuss. Mostly timing on the next set of scans and such. Guessing from other people's treatment, it might be at least 2 weeks after my last chemo. Then up to a week (more like 3 days) for processing and reading and such. But, suffice to say, I'm hoping to hear the words REMISSION right before Christmas! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I know 4 weeks may seem like an eternity. It is an eternity when when you feel pukey and pissy. Your normal life expectancy is probably around 80 years or 4160 weeks. 4 weeks is 96/1000 of 1%. See ya! hicup
