I have started my countdown to another chemo session today...I have my 4th treatment this Thursday, Friday & Saturday. But this session is different...it's my last scheduled treatment. That means that after this session I'll have a bunch of tests (probably bone marrow biopsy, MRI & CT) to see if the chemo was successful. If it was then I'll get to hear the word I have longed to hear since I was diagnosed in December...REMISSION. I am praying my heart out to hear that I am in remission.
I whole heartedly believe the chemo was successful. During my one week of feeling good between sessions, I feel amazingly good. With as bad as I was feeling before my diagnosis, I can't imagine that I am not better. I have completely quit taking my pain meds because I have NO PAIN anymore. None. Considering I was in so much pain in the fall that I couldn't move at all, having no pain now is amazing!
On the kiddo side of things, both are on the up side of colds. We took them both to the pediatrician last week because they sounded so bad and we were concerned with some crackly breathing from Will, but luckily both just had nasty colds and nothing worse. I am still surprised that I have a 3 year old and that Will will be 1 in just a month...I really need to get to my party planning!
And Joe has been super Mr Mom...working 2 jobs, taking care of the kids, doing all the housework, and taking care of me. He's amazing! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband and kids and family!
