Hai everybody, Have not been updating my blog for so long. Busy! busy! busy!
My maid is still on leave, already 2 months.
Started my printing business with my two best buddies last 1st July 2011.
Last Friday was my son's 3rd birthday, celebrating at his school and at home on Saturday
Also last Friday was my 5th cycle Herceptin treatment. I have a long way to go.

A year has past since my 1st operation on August 2010. Time flies and thanked god i am still good and walking. The sickness has taught my so much, i love my hubby and children so much.

Breast Cancer Stage 2a (Final Radiotherapy Treatment)

Hai, its been a while since i have updated my blog. I have been occupied by other things.

Today was my 15th and last radiotherapy treatment and still not sure what is the next treatment for me. Another doctor appointment maybe next week.

I have gone through two operations, 6 cycle of chemotherapy and 15 times radiotherapy therapy since August last year. Already 8 months and i feel good. With my good appetite, i gain back my weight.

I have met a friend who is also having the same condition as i am but a year younger. We talked and i am grateful that our condition is much better than others who are having nose, throat or other cancer that effect their body function which makes them so dependable to other.

A friend of mine have recommended maqui juice and i am taking it since 2 days ago. Maqui berry contains the highest antioxidant in fruits. After taking it my body feels so extremely tired, i think that my body is getting rid of all toxins from my system. All the information i have gather claiming that this superfruit is good for your health, so i will see whether it is good for me or otherwise.

Breast Cancer Stage IIa (Final Chemotherapy Treatment)

Hubby and me

Hai, its been a while since i have visited my blog site. Sometimes i feel that what is the point of having a blog. Is anybody reading these?

Any way, It has been a bitter sweet challenge this pass 6 months since i first had my operation in August 2010. Last 25 January was my 6th and final cycle of chemotherapy treatment. Apart from the obvious hair and weight loss, overall was good. Good means; considering i am having this sickness, i am still able to live a normal life, go to work, hosting my daughter's birthday party, travelling, spend time with my family without much health difficulties. I am really grateful for that.

My radiotherapy treatment will start around March 2011 which is 3 weeks 15 times. Another round of side effects that i have to endure.

It was a busy Christmas and Chinese New Year for me. I had to plan all my preparation around my treatment dates. That is the beauty of thinking positive, in any condition you are in if you forget about the difficulties you are facing you can do anything you want.

I am looking forward for my hair to grow. I can see tiny little baby hair sticking out from my bold head. Please grow into straight and silky hair.

I am going to Hong Kong with my hubby and children this coming 15 February 2011 which i purposely did not inform my doctor. luckily my next appointment is 2 March 2011 and it did not clash with the traveling date. I will post some photos when i come back.

Breast Cancer Stage IIa (Chemotherapy Treatment Day 74)

Surprisingly i am feeling not too bad today, its my 2nd day of my 4th Chemotherapy treatment. I slept the whole afternoon yesterday and continue till this morning. I manage to stay awake the whole day today and still can play my online game. Hopefully the nausea feeling which will normally starts on my 3rd day will be a mild and controllable.

Thanks god all the support you have given me through out my ordeal, another 2 more cycle of chemotherapy and according to the doctor i have to complete a radiotherapy treatment for 15 days at SMC.

I am on medical leave for 4 days and recuperating at home with my 2 kids. My daughter asked me why i am always tired and taking my nap, guess she do not entirely understand my condition.

Hope the side effect is very mild this time.

Merry Christmas everyone. Have you completed your Christmas shopping.

Breast Cancer Syage IIa (Chemotherapy Treatment Day 59)

I am so tired today, i have started work on Monday. The first day is always the hardest to wake up and drive to work. My two kids are not feeling well and keep on turning and tossing at night, waking me up and not enough sleep making me even tiring.

My mouth feels sour and dry. The nausea feeling has gone but my mouth and throat is so dry and taste weird.

The day of my 3rd chemo treatment last 23rd November 2010, the doctor was calling their patient into the doctor consultation room and when it was my turn the doctor called me 'Auntie Leona'. Haaaaa! The doctor was shocked to see that i am even younger than her. She apologised and explained that all her patients are already aunties...

I slept almost 4 days after the treatment, vomited few times and feeling nausea the whole time. I cannot wait to complete the treatment, 3 more to go. The next one will be on 14 December 2010.

Breast Cancer Stage IIa (Chemotherapy Treatment Day 37)

Bad mouth ulcer and cough! Argggg....I cannot even take cough mixture. I am having this mouth ulcer for 3 days now. tried gargling with salt water but it only relieves it for a while.The pain when i am chewing, unbearable.

I have started work on Monday and i met my boss in the morning, he did not even notice my wig. He though i am not having any hair loss, he even complemented on my new hair cut. He was shocked when i told him the truth. It as amusing, he even teased me to put on a blue colour wig.

I only have another 12 days before my 3rd treatment before all those lousy side effect and tiredness taking over my life for another round, i want to enjoy my days, eat nice tasty food, watch a couple of movies, enjoy myself with my kids and hubby.

I am going outstation again tomorrow to Kuala Penyu. It is something i used to enjoy but now days it is only work for me. Drive, reach there, complete my work and drive back. 4 hours drive.

Drive safe everybody......
