Welcome Back Side Effects!

I had chemo treatment number three on Monday.  The side effects are kicking in and they feel all too familiar.  Metallic paste coating in mouth and no taste buds combined with nausea results in no appetite!  Fuzzy head and bone pain joining in today.  I think I know more what to expect and that there is an end (hopefully!). I think I will go back for another acupuncture treatment very soon and see if it can help with some side effects. 
It is looking more and more like I will have to endure radiation after chemo is done.  I talked to Dr Wendt (chemo dr) about it to get an opinion other than from a radiologist.  He said most likely and that yes radiologist would probably say it should be done.  He did say "to a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail!"  I told him that is what I thought and why I was curios what someone besides a radiologist would say. Time will tell.
Halloween was quiet for us this year.  Actually, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be too.  I have fourth chemo on Monday before Thanksgiving, so Bruce and Clark will do most of cooking!  Good way to get everyone involved. 
I have to say I am glad Pink-October is over.  Too much pink for me!
Not much else for now, my brain is foggy and I have more difficulty than normal remembering things!!
Thanks again for all the love, support and prayers.  We appreciate everything soooo much!

I am so glad to hear you say you are done with pink....HATE pink! But will wear it to show love and support until you beat this beast! Let me know about next week, I don't want to add to your pain by being a pain in the ass and coming to stay. Will leave it up to you....

Hang in there and let me know if you want me to bring you some frozen yogurt or maybe some croissants - maybe those might be something that will go over ok??
Love, Sarah (miss you and wishing you speedy recoveries every 3rd week - and of course at the end of treatment as well - that goes without say!!!)
