Hey Everyone- We got great news last night. Greg (my brother-in-law) got in to KU for Physical Therapy, so it looks like my sister and her family will be moving back to KC sooner than later. We are all very proud of Greg and excited to have the rest of the family back together again, it has been a long time.
Round two of chemo seemed to go well. No nausea/vomiting today and only a slight tingly sensation in my fingers afterwards, no need for gloves to reach into the fridge yet (one of the side effects called peripheral neuropathy, I may get from this chemo). I am now hooked up to my pump until wednesday afternoon so hopefully the next few days will be a breeze like today. My mom went with me today, thank you mom, she was not only helpful to me but to others around me, getting them blankets and talking to them as well. What a wonderful lady she is!!!!
I wanted to tell you all after my chemo today, a lady at the cancer center approached me and asked if I would be willing to be interviewed for a news piece, I guess on NBC in the month of march (national colon cancer awareness month). Cynthia Newsome, a newscaster from NBC, already called me and we are set for next monday to do the interview. She told me they might wamt me cooking or making a recipe of something since it is also on nutrition for cancer, since I met with a nutritionist. I informed her it might be kind of boring since I really don't cook. I will think of something. I will be calling on my neighbors again to help me primp for the occasion as well. Ugh, What to wear? Gosh, I hope my hair doesn't start falling out this week, yikes. anyway, you all in KC might look for me towards the end of march sometime on tv. I hope it will bring some awareness to the diagnosis in younger women as well. Maybe Oprah will be watching, ha!
Enough blogging. I promise I won't be sending stuff every day. Just wanted to let you know things are good after round two, hasn't knocked me out of the ring yet. shawndra
