Friday is the big day. My first round of chemo begins. Tomorrow is Test Day where they’re running me through zillions of tests to have a pre-chemo health baseline. Then Thursday I have off from medical professionals — Huzzah! (I have great health care professionals on my team, but for crying out loud, a girl needs a break now and then, I have almost daily appointments — enough is enough, people!) and we’re having a Last Chance to Fatten Bridget Up Before Chemo celebration.
I plan on being a perky chemo patient and not having any problems at all, but you hear things and it never hurts to do lots of eating ahead of time just in case chemo turns me off food. I can’t imagine not liking food, I mean, maybe for a day or two, or an hour or two, but it can’t be lasting. I love food way too much. Although I think this whole being sick thing must eat up a lot of calories. My weight sinks every few doctors visits or stays the same and I swear I’m eating enough to feed a village!
Between naps and doc visits, I’m still cracking away at the edits my super agent sent me on my novel. My world is filled with lots of little comment bubbles. It’s very satisfying to finish and delete the bubbles as I go.
Thanks to everyone who continues to send good energy my way. You all are awesome!
