Here we go again....

Well, round 7 is underway.  The actual chemo went pretty well - in fact, I even got some good news at my doctor's appointment!  I managed to bargain my way into only having to take 3 shots these last two rounds!  I was pretty excited for that. 

What I'm not excited about is the next few days, when I will most likely be in extreme pain again.  I am dreading that in a way that I am unable to describe.  However, at the moment a couple of ibuprofen are taking care of the pain, and my feet and hands aren't tingling or burning yet, for which I am very thankful.

One more thing - on one hand, my eyelashes are nearly gone, and my eyebrows completely thinned out, but I think the peach fuzz on my head is getting just a little thicker!  And I do mean just a little bit - but I'm glad to see any sign of my hair coming back!

Mentally, emotionally, I am just ready for chemo to be over and done with.  A month from now, I will be starting to feel better.  I'm truly looking forward to the end of May, and only God's strength will get me through the rest of this month.

I'll keep you posted on how this round goes.  Thank you all for your prayers, you encouragement, and your support - it means so much.
