5 more weeks...and counting

This round of chemo was rough the first week, but now in my normally bad second week I'm feeling well. My white count is currently .4 which as you know by now is practically gone. I took my 2 shots in the stomach with a smile yesterday and will be going back in at noon today for 2 more. I just keep reminding myself...5 more weeks.

I've mentioned the peach fuzz growing on my head already, but I should note that my hair is growing back everywhere else too. I had to shave my legs for the first time in 4 months. I am happy to have hair on my head again, but I certainly haven't missed shaving! Oh and speaking of new hair growth, my eyebrows have so many new hairs coming in that they are pushing out the old long ones. I managed to hold onto my eyebrows through 4 rounds of chemo and now new hair is going to be their demise! Go figure...Oh well--I am assuming still that this round of chemo will destroy my new peach fuzz-- so what if my eyebrows go too.

While being thrilled that chemo is almost over I have to admit that I am a bit sad at the thought of not seeing some of my nurses. They become such a part of your everyday (literally) that it will seem odd to not see them any more.
