Tomorrow I’ll start chemo round 3 out of 6. But I’m not considering that the halfway point; infusion day is the start of the chemo cycle. When I’m feeling normal again – hopefully again about midway through the second week – THEN I’ll consider myself halfway done!
I was able to stick to my work plan for this past chemo round: I took week 1 off, then worked from home for week 2, then went in to the office for week 3 plus Monday (today), the day before the next round. I’m hoping to do that again for this upcoming chemo round, but as always am remaining flexible in case I feel worse than expected. This past cycle, during week 2, I felt so fine that I often had to remind myself to take it easy since I would forget! Although the bald head was a good reminder.
One silver lining is that during week 3 I’ve been meeting with lots of friends for breakfasts and lunches. I have to squeeze it all in to that one week, so I’m a social butterfly for that week!
