They will call me if they have a cancellation but so long as it isn't really hurting outcome, honestly I don't mind the break.

I have had 7 cycles of Xeloda and the final one starts next week.
I had 6 cycles of Oxaliplatin so we skipped on (#4 or #5) and we aren't doing it for #8.
I had two one-week breaks because my bloods weren't great and I was feeling awful.
So I have not heard back from oncologist despite a promise of a call last night or this morning, I called again and left another message. I guess I will proceed with taking the xeloda? Not sure but it seems that it's a standard course...

Dread is not even close to describing how I feel. I am so lucky to have friends that drive me, the five hours in the chair wastes me and I have felt loopy afterwards, don't like to do tow lane hilly roads home driving myself. Got the gummy CBDs for nausea ready this time.
I will changes to easiest bag tomorrow before I go, Mio Sentra tabs are easy on fingers for emptying, cleaning for me when clumsy. Does anyone else find they have different preferences depending on what they are up to?
My radiated skin got bad again after pool, heat, who knows. Going to see gynecologist next week to follow up on some bleeding after sex, hot flashes.
My quality is life is actually good on outside, I keep my complaints to myself and all of you. Getting exercise, enjoying friends, great vacation, attended a family wedding where those in the know were blown away by how good I look.
I have a four week break from school, only working about 6 hours a week with my special kids. Have a couple of big events at Winery I am responsible for and it's a busy time for our Air BnB, so no time for welding sorry.
It is supposed to get close to 100 again today. I don't like being hot but even 6 weeks out from last treatment, AC makes me get rocks in my throat. I can drank ice tea, cold beverages but that will change tomorrow.
Off to play ball with dog in park. Walks are curtailed till he gets rattlesnake vaccine on Friday, can't be too careful.

Came with great bags that I keep in car, desk or purse with scissors, mirror, and storage for extra wafers, pouches, powders, etc. Stanford set me up with Hollister, but I have tried them all. One pieces are great for travel, less to manage. Closed pouches for water sports that I can swap with a regular one once out of water(Hollister). Got a lightweight coloplast that is great on hot days, dries quickly after showers.
