Head Cold

Haven't posted in a few days. I got a nasty head cold that has prevented me from wanting to do anything but watch the National Geographic Channel. I love that channel! That and Discovery Health Channel, which Scout refers to as "Megan's Surgery Channel". How do they separate Siamese twins? I wanna know!

I have 2 (Two!) more chemo treatments left. That finally seems like a do-able number. I am excited to be done and finally let my body rid itself of all the toxic chemicals and steroids that they have been pumping into me. I know that it is killing the cancer, but it's also bad for my system. Bad for me and good for me? Kinda like chocolate! Mmmmm....chocolate chemo.

My friend who is a holistic practitioner, Sid (www.synergywellness.org), recommended I try some Lymphatic Drainage to help my body get rid of toxins. I'm going in next week to a local practitioner and I am excited to see if it works. Anything to get out of the chemo hole. I want to come out of this whole cancer experience healthier than when I went in.

Okay, back to the surgery channel.

Glad to see that you are back in the blogging saddle again. I am just getting ready to start radiation therapy (4-6 weeks) and then the chemo- (4-6 months), and I appreciate your straight words. You can do these next few treatmants! Good luck, and keep the chocolate flowing.

I think about you daily, even if I don't show it. You mean so much to me, and I love you.

And I agree with the lymphatic drain.

R and my mom send their love as well.

big hugs to you and sending you some good vibes for your speedy recovery. i'm so sorry you are going through this. i wish you the best.
