I'm trying to update my little blog here, but it's always one thing after another. Today I just don't feel well. I am actually falling asleep while typing! Usually I don't find myself that boring, but tonight I have a fever of 101.2 and am just going to call it a night.

I was just told to go to the ER and get admitted.

I think we know the way.......

Thursday afternoon and I'm finally home from the hospital. I can tell chemo is just gonna be a hoot! I'm going to spend some time with my children, catch up on phone calls then take a nap. After I do all that, I plan to update my little blog on my thrilling roller coaster ride of a hospital stay (wasn't really that exciting, but if people think it might have been they'll return.)

Geez, it's good to be home!

Thanks for all the love, support and especially for keeping me in your prayers (and you're in mine.) I truly do have the best family, friends and blog followers in all the world.

Today is as bad as I've been. I'm leaving my house now to get admitted into the hospital to get this under control.

No worries.

I'll be back blogging soon.

F.A.Q. of My Chemo

It is officially the middle of the night. I wasn't going to blog, but I'm up and sick. Remember as you read this that I am so very tired, very sick, and sick and sick and sick and sick...

Dear Sheri,

Why are you receiving chemotherapy when you've had your breasts whacked off? Didn't they get all the cancer when they removed your breasts?

That's a very good question! They believe they did, yes. The chemo is given as an insurance policy. Cancer can sometimes escape from it's captive area through your blood and the doctors don't know about it. Yes, it's true, doctors do not know everything.

I see. So what does chemo do exactly?

Well, chemotherapy medicine targets all fast splitting cells in your body. Cancer cells love to divide rapidly! This is fun for them. Which still shocks me that they would end up in my body. Anyone who knows me knows there is nothing quick about me or my body. My motto has always been to embrace your inner lazy. But whatever! Too late for me to hate the cancer anymore than I already do.

Why does chemo make your hair fall out?

Hair grows by rapidly splitting cells. Chemo med doesn't know the difference between good cells and bad, so it goes and gets em all.

How often do you receive your treatments?

I will get a total of 6 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart. They need time between each treatment for your body to heal and feel better before pumping it it back full of poison. So, basically, by the time I get to feeling better from this last treatment, I'll be ready for my next one. FUN!
