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.

Thank God i feel good today.

My next treatment will be on 23 November 2010; Tuesday.

Time flies really fast especially at the end of the year. When Christmas comes, i will complete my 4th chemo cycle. Hope the side effect will be inimal, i have so much to prepare for Christmas, need all my energy to do a lot of shopping and attend family gatherings all in December. Shopping for present, new clothes for me and my kids.

Tomorrow at my hubby 'Kampung' there will be a 60th year anniversary celebration of the Kampung, next Saturday on 27 November 2010 there will two different family gatherings, a wedding on the 4th December, another family gathering at Tambunan on 18th December 2010, Christmas at Kolopis, Christmas at Kota Belud the next day, Family Gathering again at Kota Belud on 30th December and a wedding on 1st January 2011 which will also be our 6 year wedding anniversary. The schedules are really packed.

I frequently drink barley which believes to be good in cleaning your kidney. My family loves it except my daughter.

I have endure another painful 3rd cycle treatment on next Tuesday and another 4 days of suffering. What to do, i have no choice but to complete the whole 6 cycle. My weight on 18 November 2010 drop to 47.1kg.

Pray for me.

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......

Breast Cancer Stage IIa (Chemotherapy Treatment Day 30)

2 November 2010 was my 2nd chemotherapy treatment and the pain when the drugs transmit in my veins still feel very overwhelming. The nausea feeling is still not hitting me yet, just the extreme fatigue. Yesterday, after the treatment i came home and i nap and sleep the whole afternoon and night. The doctor told me that the side effect will be less every each cycle, If that will happen to me that it is a relieve.

The only thing that i am really controlling is the food and the amount of water i take. Less water or not so clean fruits or food will cause swollen tonsil and high fever. That is the worst part if you are having nausea, headache, fatigue and at the same time swollen tonsil and fever. Arggggg!

I hope this time around the side effect will be less then the last one. Finger cross. God protect me.
