This morning I met with my nurse, Audrey, to go through my new treatment plan. I will be starting on Xeloda (an oral chemo) next Sunday. I will be on the pills for two weeks and then will get a week off then start the pills up again, so it is a 3-week cycle. This is apparently very well tolerated, with the most common side effect being very dry, red, cracked, blistering hands and feet – sounds lovely, I know!
I picked up all my meds today while I was at the hospital, and just loved when the pharmacist said to me “we keep these pills in a blister pack, because it is very dangerous for us to handle them.” But I guess I’m not suppose to worry about ingesting them… #keepoutofreachofchildren
When I met with Audrey this morning, the full report of my CT scan wasn’t in. But I did get a call from her this afternoon and she did have some good news. My bone mets are stable, and my lungs are clear! Yay – good news! #itisallrelative
So that’s it for now! Thanks again for all your support – you have no idea the energy it gives me!!!
