I have not been able to work for the past 3 wks which is driving me crazy!!
Over all I'm doing good, radiation starts tomorrow and I'm already on a chemo pill at night. Anticipate losing my hair which will be hard for me but I'll get through it as long as I get the opportunity to grow old w/ JJ after it is all over. I may get my hair cut off this week, it will give me the illusion of having some control over this... I'll be getting a CT every 2 weeks or so in order for them to measure the tumor so we'll know if treatment is working or not; they are starting w/ a conservative treatment plan, don't want to pump me full of unnecessary drugs (which I agree with, they are treating it w/ Temador http://www.temodar.com/temodar/index.html which is a relatively new drug to treat brain tumors so far I have not had any side effects, hoping it will continue but I doubt that I'll be that lucky. Here's hoping... they put me on steroids which is miserable!!! I cannot imagine someone voluntarily doing this to themselves because the steroids have really messed up my blood-sugar but I'm learning to deal with it and to plan out my meals; if they keep me on this stuff much longer I'm going to gain 20 lbs because I am craving sweets and anything fried. I'll keep you posted :-)
