Chemo #5

This time I got a higher dose of everything, except the 5-FU. I switched from that back to the Xeloda pills. I take them for 2 weeks and then take nothing for 1 week. The diarrhea was worse than it had ever been before for this round. It has really kicked my butt, literally. A large abscess developed back there right on my rectum. My tastes changed incredibly as well. I wanted nothing but ramen noodles and yogurt. Whew. What a rough time.

Chemo #4

Going as usual with nothing different to note. Thank God!

Smithville Jamboree

I managed to go to the Smithville Jamboree this year. I met Rebecca and Ian. We walked around for about an hour and a half in a bit of drizzle and sprinkle. Fun time!
