We enjoyed a family week at Misquamicut. What a great week lots of fun for the teens it was all about the new generation and man I so remember being that age lol!! 11 teens oh boy is all I could say and thank you mom for being able to stay awake to monitor them lol. I couldnt keep my eyes open past 930pm and they were in no way ready for bed at that time so grandma did the night watch keeping an open ear at all times.
Then it was time for Laura Westners wedding a day that I had been waiting for since we were young. I could barely peal myself out of bed....but I did it and enjoyed my time. Hated that I couldn't dance:( My body is just not ready for that yet/ I was just really thankful that I was there for her big day and able to smile my way through.
Finally today I called Yale and told them that the nausea meds they had given me were not working and I NEEDED HELP!!!!!! They called in a script and ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I was able to enjoy my first day in a week nausea free. I was on my way to being very dehydrated so I had to suck it up and drink drink drink all day...
Tomorrow I do my first lab drawing I'm going to the local quest so that I don't have to drive all the way to Yale just to have blood taken. Lets just hope my veins work for the blood draw. It usually takes 3 sticks before they get anything. If I choose to go to Yale they could do it through my port! Wednesday is the big Hair cut day ughhhhhh now this will be a tough one! Im heading to Rob Rivers to donate my hair:( Im scared Only because I know its not long after that that I will have NO hair just writing that makes me anxious and sad. I know thats going to be tough for me and an adjustment for everyone. I know that If I saw a young mom with her kids and NO hair my heart would break for her and I cant believe that Im the one thats going to get those looks. I know thats going to be a big adjustment for me! Then Thursday..........I find out if I need radiation after the chemo is done. I am praying hard that they have decided that the chemo would be enough. But, I will do whatever they want me to do and whatever is best for my life the healthy life that Ill be living as soon as this is over.
The rest of the week I get to be a proud Aunty to my nephew Trevor as he battles his way through regionals. They have already one the title for the best 9-10 year olds in the entire state of CT so proud of them they have worked really hard to get to this point now I look forward to seeing them win the next title:)
