Just wanted to post a quick update since it's been awhile. My trip to CTCA this week (the 8th) was delayed, so I was not able to go. The oral chemo I am on effects my feet more than anything and it causes a lot of inflammation around my toenails. The IV chemo then irritates this more, so when I have a problem with my feet, my doctor is cautious to proceed. I had to go to the podiatrist (which happens to be Gwen's new husband... which by the way, they just celebrated their one year wedding anniversary!). Anyway, he has to numb my toes and cut back some of the nail and then that has to heal before I can get the IV chemo. I had this done for the first time in January, and had to go back in the beginning of June. They were not healed enough to go back to CTCA on time, and it ended up being a good thing that I was delayed because I had to go in again yesterday to have him work on my other foot. So both toes are bandaged up. Other than that, no complaints!
I am going on vacation! Mike and I are taking a vacation with 21 other members of his family. I am really looking forward to it. When I get back, I have an appointment for chemo on June 22.
I will post some pictures when I get back!
