UnDomestic

Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

chemo


I'm sitting here getting chemo right now. This is now a weekly event. They give you all sorts of premeds so you're not nauseous or anything. This does involve involve Benydryl, so I do get very sleepy.

I'm in really nice room with a private TV. The Food Network, HGTV, Bravo, and ABC usually are my channels of choice,

When you walk into a doctor's office, and everyone who works there knows your name....I'm not sure if that's good customer service, or if I'm just at the doctor's way too much. Both I'm sure!

Cari-
I hope you and your family are having a great weekend with Cameron's birthday and all. The pictures are awesome!!!!!
My thoughts and prayers have always been with you since the very start of things. I remember when Lori told me you had received your Masters' degree and when you had class you dropped Cameron off with Melvin at the clinic and Lori played with him. Even though I never wrote you, Lori and I feel like we are right there with you.
I hope the chemo wasn't too terrible yesterday. You are a gift.
Warmly,
Suzie
