Interesting cancerish-related Facts
  • I’ve had 6 spinal taps in the past 2 months…and an estimated 4 more to go!
  • My cancer is considered stage 2B (i think)
  • I get to receive a make-a-wish, which I have yet to decide!
  • I get my blood drawn twice a week
  • When my blood counts are low, I have to get a shot every night until they go back up AND I can’t eat most raw fruit or vegetables or anything prepared by someone other than me or my parents AND I can’t leave the house.
  • My blood counts drop about 3-5 days after every round of chemotherapy.
  • One of the Chemo drugs I get from an IV is yellow, and another one is red. (the rest are clear)
  • When I’m in the hospital I get room service whenever I want.
  • I’m not allowed to go in the ocean….bad timing.
  • I’ve had a needle and open biopsy.
  • I probably have about 20 prescribed medicines i’ve taken in the past 2 months (not all at once) (I don’t have to take anything right now! :))

I will think of more facts later! Hopefully these aren’t too bad haha.

Summer is disappearing!

Chemotherapy has given me what seems like every possible side-effect a person could get! Most recently, mouth sores which are really painful and totally suck. I had a couple in my mouth a huge one in my throat which made it hurt to eat, thankfully it went away. I also had some nausea and fatigue. Thankfully, I started feeling better and more like my normal self yesterday.

I don’t really like to post when I’m not feeling well so I can keep my blog positive but I’m going to try and post more often so I can give more information.

I’m very very happy that I’m (hopefully) more than half way through my treatment! I’m going in for round 4 on Friday, August 12th and I’m going to be there for about 7 days this time which is a bit longer than usual, unfortunately. Same hospital and routine as usual.

some fun with friends that visited me in the hospital!

Made it through round 3!

I’m home from my third round of intensive chemotherapy! It was a little easier this time going in and knowing what to expect. I got to sleep in my own bed on tuesday night then went back in the next day for a spinal tap with chemo (i’ve had about 7 or 8 of those now!) Today I’ve mostly just been sleeping, laying around and recovering. The side effects seem to be easier (aside from headaches and mouth sores) to deal with this time around so far which is quite a relief. I’m hoping to get lots and lots of rest the next few days. My blood counts are going to probably drop soon which will restrict me from doing a lot due to risk of infection. When my blood cell counts are low, I basically have no immune system which can be scary so I have to be very careful! But as soon my counts they get back up I will hopefully start to feel better and be able to get out of the house and enjoy what’s left of my summer! 

Sorry for not posting in a while!

Recovering from my first round of chemo was a lot harder than i expected it to be. I was at home watching movies and sleeping for about 10 days with lots of really annoying side effects but mostly just really bad nausea and headaches. Fortunately, I recently started feeling great. I’ve gotten to finally get out of the house to see a lot of my friends and its been nice to catch up with everyone. I’m so incredibly proud of my friends for dealing with all of this the way that they have, especially the guys. To be honest I didn’t expect everyone to be so mature and cool about everything. I’ve been a little tired today but I’ve just been trying to do as much as I can until Friday. I’ve had some health restrictions that have been a little annoying, (like not being able to go in the ocean, not really being able to be as active as i used to be, ect.) but they’re not stoping me from having fun(:

Thank you so much for all the thoughts, letters, gifts, text messages, and especially prayers. <3

Next scheduled treatment

Once again back at Children’s Hospital

July 22nd-the 27th

and hopefully I can be released on time without any problems just like last time :)

Visiting hours are from 8 to 8 every day but send me a text about an hour before because I’m not always up for people around. (I’m normally not awake that early anyway)

I’m currently still at home recovering from my last in-hospital session. As much as I really want to get out of the house and enjoy summer with my friends, I can’t because I’m still extremely nauseous and fluish feeling. I know I will be up for enjoying the beach some time before I have to go back in! I just have to take everything one day at a time. If this what it takes to be cured, this is just something I need to get through and it will be more than worth it in the end! Just need to keep the positive thoughts going!!!

You can now add comments (:

there is a little comment button below all of my posts now if you want to write a little something, and you don’t have to put your name if you don’t want to I can’t tell who writes it. :)

My first few days at home have probably been some of the hardest times I&#8217;ve ever experienced. On Wednesday I had a spinal tap, where they put in some more chemo, then I got to go home. It made me experience some really really painful headaches and nausea and some other overwhelming symptoms but they&#8217;re all now being taken care of with drugs and rest and prayer. Everyone at Children&#8217;s Hospital is very adamant about keeping their patients as comfortable as we can be. There have been lots of times lately where I&#8217;ve been starting to get a little down, but nothing a text or call from a family member or friend hasn&#8217;t completely erased. :)

I learned that no matter how many drugs and medicines out there, sometimes a hug is truly the best remedy when you&#8217;re not feeling well.
