#MyLeftBoob Chronicles – Chemo Day 30: Showers of Kindness are Still Flowing!

Chemo #3 is done and so far so good. Hopefully the Claritin is helping to keep the bone and muscle soreness at bay that I had last time from the Neulasta shot.

Nausea is not as bad this time although it is still there every day, which is not fun, but I’m learning to live with it. Keeping the Saltines, oyster crackers and ginger ale fully stocked. I had a bit of muscle pain in my left arm this time and am hoping that it is not going to swell up from when the nurse took the blood pressure on the wrong arm. It’s called Lymphadema. We shall see.

The showers of kindness are still flowing…. got a lovely surprise gift basket from The Scotty Fund filled with tea, mugs, snacks, a soft blanket and pillow and lots of other goodies. It is so incredibly nice of so many people to show this kindness to me and really helps to keep my spirits up. Thank you!!!

The Greater Danbury Irish Cultural Center also did a Tip Night to benefit our family and help with the medical expenses related to my illness, which was so awesome. The 4 bartenders (Pam, Dean, Abbey & Norm) volunteered their time to help raise money for us. Thank you SO very much!!!! We are so grateful!

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I’m hoping that I don’t feel as sick tomorrow like I did with the last treatment because I’d really like to go out for brunch with my family. Fingers crossed, prayers said, positive thoughts swirling through my head.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Thank you everyone for all of your support. It means the world to us!
