I have always been a person that looked at the positive vs. the negative- and this time is no different!! I am half way finish with this "chemo shitzzle". I have only 4 more to go and I am pretty excited about that fact. The Taxol is next, it is another unknown, I don't know what the side effects will hold for me, but I will put up a good fight just as I did with the AC. The Andriamyicin (Red Devil), was not a match for this chick! In fact, on the score card it was Traci 4- Red Devil 0!! I kicked her ass- yes she did manage to take my energy, and take my hair, but I won that battle, she DID NOT take my spirit! I hope I have the same results with the Taxol.
So the deal is, Jan 3rd I will start Taxol and the treatments will be every other week just like the AC. The plan is for a huge party at the end of these 8 weeks!! I have so many friends to thank for supporting me on this journey.
2011 and 2012 have not gone down as my favorites, but I know after all I have learned these past two years, 2013 is a year for renewal and I can't wait for it to begin. My life has changed so much since August and I am so thankful for all I have been blessed with. I am thankful for the friends and support Army that has literally come out of the woodwork. I am thankful for my family who is always there to hold my hand when I am in pain or wipe my tears. I can't EVEN begin to thank Olive (aka Kimmie) and Poptart (aka Cissy) who will stop their lives anytime I need them for anything or to drive Miss Daisy. I am also thankful to have met Super D (aka Dawn) on this journey. It really helps when you are able to reach out and talk to someone about the nasty's of chemo with someone who knows what you are going through. You are ALL the best and you have all taught me to be a better person and friend. So when you hear a lot of yelling and hollaring as the clock ticks down to 2013, it will be this girl!! I have never looked forward to a new year as much as I do this year!! Willie Raes, look out for the Party!
So I wish EVERYONE a happy, healthy and blessed 2013- I love you all!!! If you are reading this blog, you are my Army and you are what keeps me going on this fight!
