Well, 2 down and 2 to go. I felt rough Thursday. My muscles ached and felt sore. My hair well .... It is coming out really fast now. I hate to brush my hair. Every time I brush it comes out full of hair. My hair is half gone as of Friday today. I am depressed but not real bad about it. I keep trying not to cry over my stupid hair. It will come back but the tears are getting harder to fight back. I want to be strong and live life as though nothing is wrong.
I am working and trying to take care of family. They have ate soups and sandwiches a couple of days and egos. I tried to make up for it on the days I feel better. I had to take nausea pill today.
People at work are trying to be supportive and are being really kind to me in so many ways. Even Husband's work people are being nice and praying for me too.
Everyone shouldn't worry about me. There are children and others out there worse off than me. My hope is that cures for cancer will help children and then the rest of us.
Thanks for all the prayers and wonderful things each of you have done for me.

Chemo#2the half way point

Well, second dose today. I feel pretty good I guess. We laughed again and the time past by pretty good. I got a felt hat from chemo basket they have theie. It's a red color like Alabama's football color (Jeff said it was).
Arrived @8:15am saw doctor @ 8:30am
I lost 1pound so that's good. He said I need flu shot mid Sept. then another one Jan. I also need phenomena shot too. Blood count looks good.
We went back to chemo room. Is was very slow today but when we left the chairs were almost full. So going early is less crowded. One lady has to stay 6 hours. WOW! poor lady. I am glad I don't stay that long. We left around 11:30-12 noon.
We went shopping for me a hat but no luck. The nurse told us about Across the Creek on Clinton hwy. So  maybe we can go there to look at wigs, hats, & scarves.
We went Krystal and got it to go because it was so busy with it being noon time. It tasted great! WOW! no metal taste today.
We got home and I was so sleepy I took a 2 hour nap and woke up 5min before kids got home. I can't believe I slept.
My stomach is feeling a little yucky right now I hope it stops but if not I guess I'll take a pill for it.
Last week I ate a lot of sweets to make up for the days I couldn't.
I am starting to shed a little more hair. So it begins.
