Round 7 Complete

So another round has come and gone and so things are going good. No my schedule becomes a little more lets wait and see.

I will go in again on Monday and receive a push of vincristine so that will go as normal, but on March 31st I will have the appointment with the surgeon to discuss the possibility of surgery so depending on how that goes will determine when my surgery will be and the following chemo schedule after that.

So I will keep you updated as soon as I know what exactly is going on.

Day 3-Round 7

So another day was come and gone. Day three was without much event. I got there 7:30 and my chemo was there by 9:00 and I was gone by 11:30 so everything went very smoothly. Since it was wednesday that means that I was deaccessed and I was able to take a shower with is always an amazing experience. 

So in anticipation of the shower. I wore my I Heart showering shirt which was made for me by my friends Ashley and Sterling. All the nurses loved it so I would like to say thanks to my friend Ashley and Sterling for making me my saweet shower shirt!

The shower did feel very good!

Ode to Sandra!

Sandra has been my nurse the past two days and she has been awesome. She is super saweet and I can tell that she really cares!

Day 1 of round seven went by very well and without anything bad happening. We saw my doctor again on Monday and she had talked with a surgeon who specializes in the very surgery that I will need. My doctor told me that he will be more than happy to perform surgery on me and that they will perform the surgery and open me like a clam. In which they will feel around in my lungs and find the tumors and cut them out and then remove my left diaphragm which has the big conglomerate of tumors on it and replace it with a fake diaphragm.

So we will meet with the surgery on March 31st and will then take to him and figure out all the details and find out for sure whether the surgery will for sure take place. So that will be good news. It will always a better prognosis if surgery can be performed to remove the tumors.

So here I am Day 2 writing to you before I have even gotten my chemo and I am sure today will go by fast.

Once again if you have any questions you can comment on this blog or email me at

and last of all I would like to wish my MOTHER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! LOVE YA!!!
