The Neupogen (booster) shot from last Thursday worked. Or rather, my body complied. What a good listener and worker it is!
While I was waiting for my blood results to indicate whether I would have chemo today or not, I bumped into chemo-mate J. When I saw her last, she was toying with cutting her shoulder-length white hair. Today she told me she’d been inspired by the short haircuts a few ladies were sporting. I saw the same why-didn’t-I-do-this-sooner look in her face that I’d felt when I cut my hair. She looks amazing – probably due to her new attitude! I like to think I was part of her inspiration(!) so in hindsight I’m grateful for the courage I had to do it.
Chemo went well although to give my body a break of sorts, the doctor only approved one of the drugs for today instead of both. I should have a longer session with both drugs next week.
I’ve only had chemo on Fridays before so wish me luck as I go straight into Tuesday’s work day without the usual weekend break.
