Halfway Done & Coming Clean

Yesterday completed the 3rd day of my 3rd round of chemo. Woo-freakin’-hoo!

The chemo side effects are noticeably cumulative. Post-cisplatin was the worst I’ve felt of all the rounds. The nausea is overwhelming, even with the medication from my doc and the medical marijuana. I have a follow-up with the doc tomorrow, so I will ask about other options. As far as I know, we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s available to help. The Zofran helps a ton, especially the sublingual (instant) option I have for my midnight feedings. (Post chemo, I’m taking my anti-nausea meds every 4-6 hours 24 hours a day.)

But! I’m feeling better today and that’s what matters.

And, I’m also feeling it’s time to “come out of the cancer closet” on the rest of my social media accounts, particularly Facebook. I find I’m editing myself and I hate that. So, next week, I’m going to make it official. The lines between friends and acquaintances on Facebook is pretty blurry, so I am password-protecting the “Drive Jessica to a Medical Appointment” page. If you need the password, email me.

The end is nigh! It’s all downhill from here.
