Right when you think you’re awesome because you’re having a good workout, you suddenly heave and want to blow chunks all over the exercise ball because you’re on chemo.
Good times. Almost done.
Liz – you ARE awesome – chunks or no chunks. Kudos to you for working out at all. I had to drag myself around the block last night and that was all I could do workout wise. Tonite is the last night for this month's chemo for me. Round Seven will be in the books and I'll have five to go (fingers crossed).
Rock on Liz! You are so close to the finish line, I bet you can smell it.
Hi Liz- Just found your blog today, and have enjoyed reading about your journey. I'm a brain cancer patient, too. Grade 2 Oligoastrocytoma, surgery in December 2007. 56 years old now, went back to work the day after my radiation was finished. Temodar was not a treatment option for me. I've had clear MRI's since, Thank God. I'm on 1500mg of generic Keppra twice a day, and the only seizures I've had since surgery have been attributed to medicine interactions. One post I really liked was where you had to remind yourself that, oh yeah, I have brain cancer. I feel the same way, most likely because I'm able to function normally, I guess. I appreciate you sharing your story, and I'll check back often.
@Eliz: Your comments (and tweets) have really perked up my mood lately. Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to a wall and when I see a message from you I think, "Oh yeah–she knows what I'm talking about!"
@Scott: Thanks for finding me! I am glad to hear you've been having clean MRIs.
I agree wholeheartedly with Elizabeth, you truly deserve to feel amazing for managing to work out while on chemo. It is hard enough when not on chemo!
Thanks again for sharing your experiences on this marvellous blog of yours,
Liz – totally get the 'talking to the wall' feeling. my darling hubster (DH) just doesn't understand – even tho he tries and I totally give him credit for that. He will never really get it that I'm taking chemo pills AND have my monthlies so I was going to feel bad regardless but now I feel bad X 2 because there are angry weasels in my uterus. (Sorry men for the TMI)
You are never not inspirational. Erin
