Tuesday musings

I didn't realize that it had been a whole week since I had posted anything.  I'll try to post more often.

I just shaved my legs for the last time.  I'm guessing that I won't have to shave them again for quite a while.  Woo Hoo!  The benefits of chemo.  Who knew?!

Tomorrow is going to be a long day.  I will put in a full day at work and then our girls are both singing in the District Choir Festival tomorrow night.  Luckily, my mom and dad are bringing dinner over to us.

My next treatment is Thursday.  After this treatment, I will be 50% done with chemo!  Yes!  Nikki has a concert Thursday night that I will not be able to go to because of how tired I will be after treatment.  This is the first time that I have had to miss something (besides a few hours of work) because of treatment.  I didn't want to let it affect my life in a negative way, but it will on Thursday.  I almost feel like I am failing because I have to miss something important.  I feel like cancer is winning. 

My skin is really dry from the chemo.  My hands have been so dry that they hurt.  Does anybody know of some good lotion that doesn't make your hands feel greasy?  I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks for following my blog.

  1. What about the Infinite Aloe? Does that leave your hands greasy?
