My birthday is tomorrow and I guess what I'll remember most about this birthday is that I'm half way through four rounds of chemo and my hair has started falling out. Not exactly the same kind of birthday I had three years when my guy took me to Vegas to see Cher and Cirque du Soleil.
What can I say about chemo except that it's like Chernobyl exploding in my body. I'm supposedly receiving a mild chemo combo but my immune system thinks otherwise. I am grateful though that the cancer was in the early stages so most likely I'll be okay. Who knows though what kind of damage the chemo is and will do in the long run. I'll be working on building a strong and healthy immune system as soon as the nasty chemo rounds are over which should be around Oct. 11th.
