There are only 6 pills left in the bottle, which means I have one day left of cycle three, one more day before I have a week off from the chemotherapy pills. Saying I look forward to a break from the 2 weeks of taking the medicine is a bit of an understatement. Although the pills do not seem to have the same intense side effects as an infusion of chemotherapy, it's strong enough to attack the yuck, therefore it's also strong enough to knock me down a few notches. However, I'm grateful that the side effects continue to be manageable and I'm able to stay on the largest dose to tame the beast. And actually I have felt increasingly better with each cycle, thank goodness! This is definitely hard, but I also recognize that it could be worse.
I have also decided that on my first day off, I'm treating myself to something with sugar, something sweet. All other days, I avoid the sugar, as I don't need to give my body fuel to grow more yuck. Last time, I ate a delicious homemade muffin, I wonder what it will be this time. I'll let you know as I'm sure you'll all be waiting on the edge of your seats.
