This week a test result came back negative; indicating the infection I had with the first chemo is gone. I mistakenly blamed all of my issues on the side effects of chemo treatment not realizing I was dealing with two separate issues; chemo plus an infection. If my blood work is good, tomorrow I will be given my second dose of chemo. As before, I have mixed emotions. I am eager to complete the “hard treatment” but I am not looking forward to feeling sick or fatigued. Again, I am digging for courage. I instantly think of my four grandsons and I am more determined than ever to fight cancer and win!
