But this past week, I never reached that 100%. At my best I peaked between 75-80%. Maybe it is because of the cumulative effect of chemotherapy. The more doses I have done, the more poison that is in my system. Or maybe it is the effect of daily Neupogen. I have had 27 shots of Neupogen since my first dose of chemotherapy. Or maybe it is a fall cold that is plaguing my body. I developed a cough a week ago and it persist. In fact the doctor just prescribed a Z-pac just in case the cough was turning into bronchitis. Most likely it is a combination of all three things with the end result...I am dreading Monday morning.
Monday is dose number 4, the official end of round 2. (I know I posted earlier that I was done with round 2 but I misposted. I had just started round 2.) The optimistic person inside of me says YEAH, that means I will be 2/3 finished with this process. But right now, I just want to scream, NO, please do not make me feel any worse than this!
Before I got sick I had planned to attend Creating Keepsakes Convention that comes to Kansas City every second weekend in October. Then I got sick and did not feel like I could commit time and money to attending something when I did not know how I would feel. So even at 75-80% I drove out the KCI Expo Center yesterday and purchased only 2 tickets. Today I will be sitting through 2 classes (the two I wanted to attend more than anything!!). I might not have been able to do two days worth of classes, or both crops but I will make it to CKC and I will be attending the Latest and Greatest with Basic Grey!! That brings a small bit of cheer into my world.
Of course all of that, after I get my daily Neupogen shot!
