Are we there yet? Are we done yet? Enough!

EnoughChemotherapy, 2 different ones, Doxorubicin, a 15 minute push, as they say in medical terms, and Ifosfamide, daily for 3 days in a row, was beating me up. I could feel my strength depleting. I just wanted a break. I had finished my fourth treatment. Resting was lying or sitting up on my daughters couch watching TV all day or listening to music or just sitting with no sound at all. I don’t know where the time went. I sometimes had not thoughts at all. My body was weakening from not enough movement so I forced myself to get out and walk around the neighborhood. Of course, I went full force and unknowingly fractured my spine. My daughter gave me some awesome stretches and other exercises to do but it was not enough.  Time would heal it.I kept saying out loud, give me a breather! Let me get strong again. I got what I asked for. Blood work and the CT scan after my fourth treatment showed I had blood aneurysms around the tumor. Result: No more chemo treatment until fixed. Stay tuned.
