Today was the first Tuesday since November 23rd that I woke up and didn't have to go to the hospital for chemotherapy!
It was so nice to sleep in a bit longer and stay at home with Emma all day long. Between feedings, Emma and I snuggled, cleaned the house, put away laundry, checked email, swung in our swing, played on our mat, did tummy time and got a quick workout in.
Next Tuesday is my last chemotherapy before surgery. It feels like Groundhog's Day as I thought I had already had my last one. However since I was able to start the Herceptin once Emma was born, Dr. Lyss wanted to squeeze one more in because this drug is safe to give one week before surgery. I was bummed I didn't get my full "chemo vacation" but one more now means one less later.
I don't know my full post-surgery schedule yet as most is determined at my follow-up with my surgeon. At that point, we will determine upcoming physical therapy, radiation and remaining chemotherapy.
I do know that I will begin my hormone therapy (via a daily pill) beginning one week post surgery. I will keep you posted on how that goes...a medicated menopausal state for a 30 year-old could bring interesting tales.
