Kicking Breast Cancer's Butt

Monthly Archives: April 2014

Today is my 3 month (really it’s 4 months) follow up with the Radiation Oncologist.  I don’t expect anything dramatic.  I envision that she’ll check the skin on my chest where I had radiation, ask me how I’m doing, wish me a happy, long life, and send me on my way.

Easy-peasy.

Yet here it is about an hour before we have to leave, and I am nauseous.  I thought I was done with this.  Crap.

Chemo ages you.

I’m convinced of that.

Just over one year ago I was walking a mile every day to work, and sometimes another mile between offices during the day.

Yesterday, I had done one load of laundry, one load of dishes, made lunch for Michaela and Ken, and then lunch and tea for myself, and after than my legs were heavy and my feet were in pain.

It amazes me to think that a mere 14 years ago I was stomping all over London and the British countryside for 10 weeks, and I was rarely as tired as I am right now.
