Nana’s Loves

This past week I had my 4th round of chemo. It went very well, I even took a short nap while receiving treatment. All the nurses are awesome and take such good care of me. It is the side effects the second week that are the worst right now, but when I get upset, scared, or depressed my thoughts go to my grandchildren, my loves, the reason I am fighting so hard.

Kaden, the oldest, has the most concerns and questions, wanting to know all about the drugs, the pain, the side effects. He was able to ride with his mom this week along with Remi to take me to treatment this week but due to COVID 19 they couldn’t come in. I hope at some point he can come in to see the process. Remi just wants to be sure I am going to be okay. Natalie went through a similar situation with her other grandma, her texts and messages to check in with me bring me such joy.  Charlotte and Thomas are too little to understand but because we live so close we see them often. Thomas is a bundle of energy that keeps us on our toes and Charlotte is the best snuggler and always just seems to know how much I can handle. She is growing so fast.

Later this month my chemo treatments change to every week with a new course of medications. The oncologist thinks I will tolerate it well. The main side effect that scares me is the neuropathy in my hands and feet since I am already dealing with some of that with my paralysis. I am hoping for fewer stomach issues and am prepared for the fatigue and the possibility of a rash of some sort.  The one week turn around should be interesting. But I am in this fight for the long haul.

I want to thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers. I appreciate them more than you can ever know.

  1. Praying for you for the strength to go forward as God directs the doctor’s on a course of action. God bless!

  2. I’m glad you are tolerating your chemo well and pray that you do well on the new course of meds too!

  3. Wishing you the best of good fortune in your new regime…don’t worry too much about the nephropathy…my late husband had it as a result of his PKD, prior to chemo…no noticeable increase…prayers continuing…

  4. You are one of my four friends going through chemo right now, and I pray for you every day. I’m glad you have such wonderful support from those who love you. I’m glad you are tolerating the chemo fairly well.

    I’ll continue to pray for you as your doctor readjusts your treatment.
