Well. Not so easy today. A few tears shed and perhaps many more in the coming days as the reality sets in.
Bottom-line: Chemo starts Friday. However, it's a pill form of chemo called Xeloda that doesn't have as bad of side effects as some of the chemo drugs. One of the biggest perks (but, really, is anything a "perk" when it comes to chemo?!?) is that I won't lose my hair. The blond pony tail stays. That has to be something I celebrate, because there's not much else that's easy to cheer over. I won't go into the list of side effects...who wants to hear those things.
Hmm....what do I do tomorrow in advance of "X-Day" starting?
Not totally sure, but you bet it will include a stop to Cold Stone Creamery for a dish of Mud Pie Mojo.
I'll keep you posted.
Love to you all,
