For three weeks, I’ve dreaded Round 2 of chemo. But the truth is, the steroids are the devil. I took my two rounds yesterday and got so jacked up, I was up the entire night. I tried to sleep, but steroids are like mommy crack. You can’t stop doing, thinking, planning. How did I not know about these sooner, like when the kids were 2? Then I found out they’re also responsible for “Roid Rage” mood swings and my WalMart cravings. The kids have been given permission to grant me a time out when I’m grumpy. Now WHY did I not think of that earlier?
Chemo was easy and fast today. I got my same rockin out nurse, Rhandy. My mega-sarcastic friend Julien was there with me. Nothing makes the IV bottles drain fast like talking some serious smack. Then, my photographer friend Barrett came by with some super-rad eye candy photo possibilities for the Wall O’ Cancer Brochures. When I was showing him my friend Jeanine’s stunning watercolors of dolphins, the nurses and patient next to me loved them, making me feel like even a small amount of art will bring brightness to the patients and staff. We didn’t have time to install them today, but we will.
1- The tumor used to be hard as clay; now it’s like Jello. Could the rockets be why?
2- We are only $60 away from hitting our $3,000 goal on youcaring.com. Thank you thank you thank you!
3- Unreliable medical information be damned. Tomorrow, I am having the genetics test. Let the truth be drawn out so I can save myself and protect my kids.
4- Lisa gave me a new hat with a flower on it – love it! She also brought dinner over again with her husband Chris and daughter Ella and hung out with us. Can’t wait to hang out with them when I’m not a Chemosapien.
Cathryn gave me one of the funniest gifts ever – FOXY LADY footie pajamas!

So glad it went so smoothly yesterday. Yippee!!!
You are AMAZING! And adding art to the chemo room, just too cool for words. You crack me up, chemosapien!!
Hey, wait a sec. I see stubble. And it’s not blond stubble. The truth comes out!!
That art will brighten so many lives! Good for you!
I know you had a cute short haircut, but you’ve got a great bald head! Very G.I. Jane.
Two good movies: sleepwalk with me & your sister’s sister.
