I most likely won't get radiation, but yeah, the fatigue from chemo is not fun. When I came out of this cycle's last Thrusday, I practically started dancing around the house! So annoying to know I have two more times...but I'll get there, I guess.

You will feel good one day, like crap the next. Soon the crappy times aren't as bad. The good days remain good. Each week reveals some improvement.

Anything thrown your way, you can deal with it. Trust me on that. I'm a card carrying wimp, and I made it through.

BTW, those triangle one liter measuring vessels they have at the hospital come in handy. Put one by your bed, one where you lounge, and one in the car. You can stick you nose and mouth in them to minimize splatter. It muffles the sound too

Get well, raise hell.
