I've just been going along trying to get my life in gear. Trying to find out what "normal" might look like for me. Its been up and down. My transition back to work has been going well overall, but I am still battling my old habits while in the office: forgetting to take time out … Continue reading That One’s a DOOZY.
So far so good everyone. Transplant went well. Now I just have to wait and see if the C-Dif returns. Fingers crossed that it never comes back. In the meantime it should take a couple months for my intestines to heal. Pray that Mikes super poo does the job. Was supposed to start radiation today, … Continue reading Awwww Shiiiit.
It has been a crazy month of emotions. I was never really able to relish in the fact that my tumors were gone because I was sucker punched with the shock of having to get radiation. Not only was I scared of radiation (and still am), but the surprise of having to get it brought … Continue reading Poster Child
So I guess we got a little bit ahead of ourselves. After taking a closer look at the pathology, my doctors met with each other to discuss radiation therapy for me. It turns out that since my tumor was aggressive, 4.8 cm in size and was very close to the pectoral muscle, they are strongly … Continue reading Take A Step Back
Hi all, I made it through the surgery and came home yesterday afternoon. Still in pain but am enjoying the pain killers and getting lots of rest. I'm not up for visits yet, maybe later this week or next. The pathology results of the surgery came back. The wet report said: 8 lymph-nodes were removed and … Continue reading I’m Home!
Good news all, After another visit to the ER and stay in the hospital, I am approaching my next chemo treatment (number 5 of 6). Take note: my doctor is awesome. Considering that I'm still fighting that dang C-Dif infection and that I have gone thru 5 chemo treatments (all at full dosage), he decided not … Continue reading I deserve a break today
As usual, I can't sleep, so at least I have this blog to pass the time this morning. I've had a rough go of it since Treatment 3: first the treatment, then hospital, then Treatment 4, then discovery of an intestinal bacterial infection - that I had since the hospital - , 2 days of feeling … Continue reading Ramping Up for Treatment 5

I'm finding that its getting difficult to find new things to say. I'm at home and alone a lot and nothing new is really happening. Also, my body's reaction to chemo is getting increasingly difficult and this will continue to be the case from here on out. I'm tired all the time. Nothing much comes … Continue reading A Whole New Kind of Battle
I know I'm a Chemo Whore because: 1. I wake up at 5 a.m. and shop online for Valentine's shirts to wear to my next chemo appointment 2. I pile on all of my heavy whore make-up to look hot for "Club Chemo" 3. I pack up my Chemo Ho Bag and matching gear 4. … Continue reading Hello, My Name is Christi and I’m a Chemo Whore
