Day 1, Treatment Day (Tuesday): This was the fastest chemo I have ever experienced. Matt had his company’s sales conference so he wasn’t with me and I decided that I wanted to go by myself. I went in early for blood work and met with my doctor. Instead of only talking about treatments and blood counts we started talking about how cancer changes your perspective and how time and relationships become more important. She sees patients of all ages and stages and I can only imagine how hard that must be.
I walked into NYU that morning not sure if I was even going to be able to get treatment because of a minor cough that I had over the weekend. I was shocked when my neutrophils were 1.5! The “healthiest” they have ever been during my whole treatment. I went straight from the doctor to the chemo chair and was finished with my treatment by 11am – it was awesome!
Day 2-5 (Wednesday-Friday): Aidan’s camp is finished so the boys don’t really have any scheduled activities. My nanny has been amazing about taking the boys for all-day play dates. They leave the house around 10am and don’t come back home until almost 7pm – after already having eaten dinner and taken baths. It has allowed me to really relax quietly at home.
Labor Day Weekend: We had super busy and fun Labor Day Weekend with friends and family. I can’t believe that September is here!
Chemo Status: 8 Taxol down, 4 to go!
