Thursday was Part 2, Round 5, Day 1: Forget to take a picture when I was getting the chemo done so took one when I got back to the hotel. One exciting thing was I got a bed at chemo this time!! Super happy since the first day is 6 hours long.

Yesterday was Part 2, Round 5, Day 3: Topotecan day again. 1 hour of hydration & 30 minutes of treatment so I was out in just over an hour again. I was so tired today probably from the Benadryl I took the night before. I was having a hard time sleeping because my nose kept running & I kept sneezing. The chemo (Avastin) I get on the first day cause stuffy nose & the one medication (Flomax) I take causes my nose to run. I can't catch a break sometimes...lol. I morse round of chemo then scans & we will see if I will need any more chemo or if I will be done. πŸ€žπŸ’™

Part 2, Round 4, Day 3: Yesterday was the longest day ever. We left for chemo around 10am & got stuck in a major traffic jam on the highway because they decided to fix the roads on a Saturday & only had 1 lane open. So I was a half hour late. Then after chemo another traffic jam because there was an accident on the highway taking up 2 lanes so only 1 lanes was open again. By the time I got home it was 5pm & I went right to sleep. I couldn't keep my eyes open. I ended up sleeping on & off for about 14 hours. Now I'm just waiting until March 15th to get my next stent replacement surgery & to get done with the next 2 rounds of chemo so we can see what the next step is.

Friday, March 2, 2018 (Part 2, Round 4, Day 2): Well the insomnia was real again last night. I think I only got about a hour & a half of sleep. I'm definitely not going to miss the Decadron when this chemo is over. I just wish I knew when that would be. After chemo I got home & basically slept the rest of the day & night. I wanted to make sure I got enough sleep for chemo Day 3.

Part 2, Round 4, Day 1: Today was Avastin, Taxol & Topotecan... Everything went well but they benadryl (only 25mg) they gave me knocked me out for about a half-hour during my Taxol infusion. I just couldn't keep my eyes open. Also, I drank so much & they were pumping me up with fluids that I had to go to the bathroom a million times. At least I know my one kidney is functioning. 😰🚽 Other then that nothing new to report at this time.

Today I got the results from my CT scan... Everything is looking good & we are continuing with my current chemo treatment. My doc is decreasing the Taxol a little bit though because the neuropathy is getting worse. So, he's going to change it just enough so it stays the same. Then once I'm done with the Taxol it should get better over time.

Monday, February 19, 2018: CT scan day! Also not feeling the greatest at all. My stomach is killing me. And look at this bruise I got from them trying to put a needle in my right arm Friday in the #emergency room. He got the needle in but couldn't find the vein so he started one in my left arm instead.

Friday, February 16, 2018: So on my one year #cancerversary I ended up in the #emergency room. A few days earlier I was having flank pain on my left side & pelvis area. I called my urology oncologist because I was thinking the pain was caused by my uretal stent getting blocked. They said it could be an infection or something else but if the pain continues to go to the emergency room. By Friday it was still hurting so off I went. They did a whole bunch of tests to make sure there was no infection, urine wasn't backing up into my kidney & the stents were still in the right position. After everything & 6 hours they said everything looked fine. So the only thing I can think would be wrong is that the stent has been in too long & needs to be changed but my doctor said he will check my CT scan when I get it Monday to make sure nothing else is going on.

Saturday, February 10, 2018: Part 2, Round 3, Day 3 (Topotecan): Okay, 1 more update... The last 3 days of chemo have been exhausting. Today only took about an hour & a half which was good. After it was the long drive home. I did fall asleep on the way & then when I got home around 3pm I basically slept the rest of the day & night. I just couldn't seem to stay awake for longer than 20 minutes at a time. I would wake up, go to the bathroom, sit on the couch for a few minutes & then end up in bed to sleep a few hours & repeat. I guess my body really needed the sleep this time since I didn't get much sleep after the 1st day of chemo this round. Now it's just time to wait for next Monday to get my CT scan & see how the chemo is working. 🀞

Friday, February 9, 2018: Part 2, Round 3, Day 2 (Topotecan): Today wasn't too bad even though the insomnia was in full force last night. I can't wait until I'm off the Decadron. I mean don't get me wrong it's working wonders for the nausea & everything it's supposed to be doing but the insomnia after the IV Decadron I get on day 1 of chemo treatment is crazy. Not to mention the 30-40 pound weight gain because it makes to feel like your never full. Other than that Day 2 went super quick. I was out in under 2 hours since they can run the hydration with the Topotecan.

Yes, you see another new @loveyourmelon beanie. Stop judging; I have an addiction...lol! But I couldn't help it because it matches the sweater & how cute is the pom on the beanie!!!πŸ€—

Thursday, February 8, 2018: Part 2, Round 3, Day 1 (Taxol/ Avastin/ Topotecan). We are getting to the middle of this chemo regiment & today was another 6 hour day but it wasn't too bad. After getting my pre-meds (which includes benadryl I did take a little nap). Everything else went well throughout the infusion but the neuropathy started to intensify again. Nothing horrible, just super annoying. Toward the end of my day I did get to watch some of the Olympics while sitting there so that helped pass some time. Also, yes I did buy another @loveyourmelon sweater... they are just so comfortable & are perfect for accessing my port.

Friday, February 2, 2018: I'm a little late at getting this up but this was my last doctors appointment. Everything went good & we scheduled my next CT scan for Monday, February 19th to see how the chemo is working so far. To say I have a little bit of #scanxiety would be an understatement. We will see.
