No chemo today.

Because I am a wimp. I so had my heart set on the idea of not doing any more chemo. BUUUUT since my leave date for Italy is September 18, I could actually squeeze in a couple more rounds with Avastin. Surgery will most likely be in October because I'm NOT having surgery before I go to Italy. I want to ENJOY it.
I talked to Dr Cawley today... okay, whined to her. Cried because I didn't want to do any more chemo, because I'm tired and sick and sick and tired of it. I want to be a present mom, not one that just sits and watches movies.
SO, I have a CT scan scheduled for Thursday, then meeting with Dr Cawley again on Friday and will have Scan Discs and paperwork to take with me to Dr Chalikonda. I have watched one of his webinars on HIPEC.

Click it if you wanna watch.. it's about 12 minutes long.

So more decision making next week.

In the meantime, trying to shake the chemo taste in my mouth, making plans for what I will be doing if I don't have any more chemo. I hope, I hope, I hope.
Oh and Publisher's Clearing House says I could be a winner and get $5000 a week for the rest of my life. You think I'm playing along... Hell yeah! My luck will turn SOMETIME!!

A little something for Dan... No chemo tonight in my coffee....



  1. Remember that song that goes "no sugar tonight in my coffee, no sugar tonight in my tea"? I just googled it, it's by the Guess Who. You know the song! Well, thanks to your post, I can't get it out of my head: "No chemo today in my coffee, no chemo today in my tea!"

    Sorry, I couldn't resist. Italy sounds awesome, by the way!

    Dat'n-doo-dow-dow, dat'n-doo-dow... (that's from the song!)

  2. I should have known someone in radio would have appreciated that comment.

    The Guess Who, straight from the era when you could be butt ugly and still be a rock star...

  3. Try Jolly Ranchers for the chemo taste-they are strongly flavored and help a lot of people-and use plastic utensils instead of metal for a while to help with that metallic taste in your mouth. I'm hoping to hear you will be doing some more chemo before going to Italy-beat back the beast as long as possible. Italy!!! I'm soooo excited for you!!! How wonderful!
