don't chemo and type


Yesterday was my 3rd round of chemo. Today I received my booster shot and am beginning to have intense bone pain. I feel like I have been partying for days and just got slammed by a Mac truck. I am drinking glasses and glasses of water and peeing every 5 minutes. My cell phone alarms are all full due to having too many meds to take during the day. When I am not sleeping I am rambling on and on.... My whole body is slower, walking, creating sentences, speaking, connecting thoughts, being forgetful.....chemo just knocks you plain on your ass.

Let's just say there is no way I could pass a sobriety tests, hell I can barely walk down the hallway.

My mom arrived today to help. Scott has Mondays/Tuesdays off so we have one good day together, then chemo day, then Scott goes back to work and mom comes over to be my new nurse. It is a great system and I am so thankful to have all the support I do. And my sisters live in the area as well--it is great. And to top it all off a pretty great group of friends!

3 down, 3 to go.


  1. You're half way there Dori! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Hope you're having "good" days again soon.

  2. Hi there....dont know if you remember me. I work at the Breast Cancer Resource Center & met you the day you came to meet with Marsha.

    I got on here today to check in & see how you are doing. I wanted to invite you & the hubby to join us tonight at our kickoff party for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Its being held at Cork! A Wine Bar, on 6th Ave. But I see that you just had your 3rd chemo I'm sure you are just going to hibernate for a few days. Please let us know if we can help with anything!
