Chemo Taxol Final Round is in the bag!

Yesterday was my final treatment for my first round of chemo - Taxol. Despite the itching and neuropath, it has not been overly difficult to navigate and with my healthcare team, I had the right strategies to navigate those few side effects down to a low level of discomfort. A note to anyone going through this journey or one of their loved ones..your team is your life line, chose them wisely (keep in mind important traits of accessibility, understanding, personalization to you). my next round of chemo (Adriamycin - also known as red devil mostly due to its red color and high toxicity

) starts Dec 9. I also started back to work on Dec 1 and it has been great! I’m taking it slow and listening to my body and my team is cognizant of my limitations and are ready to support in any way. My work has been permanently moved to home based work so it’s easier to more slowly engage. this last round of chemo is four sessions over two months so less taxing from a frequency perspective than this first 12 rounds. All in all, I’m in great spirits and doing things to get stronger every day. After this last round of chemo that is targeted to end on Jan 20 (inauguration day) - I can get rid of Trump and chemo on the same day! Yasss! After that I rest for three weeks and then start my daily radiation for five and a half weeks. So all in all, I have a ways to go but I WAS BUILT FOR THIS FIGHT WITH GOD IN FRONT AND GRACE AND MERCY ALL AROUND ME!
