Well its hard to believe but it’s been 4 days since my last Taxol and Herceptin treatment and I haven’t had one typical “down day.” I feel like I’m waiting for the hammer to drop but so far it hasn’t. Is it possible that the lung infection has been with me much longer than I realized and that has been creating the health complications? I’ve been treating it daily with the prednisone….still very conscious of the chest and throat tightness, but I don’t have that bone weary tiredness that has been so debilitating throughout this process.
I’ve also made a decision to try and take the next 4 weeks off from work. I realize that I just don’t have the physical strength or endurance to make trips to downtown DC to see my clients anymore. I’ll still be available for consultation, or if there is a conference call, but for the most part I am just going to focus on getting through the last 4 treatments and trying to conserve my strength. It is also Christmas in a couple of weeks and I’d like to go spend it in NC. I’ll come back for the treatments but the majority of time will be there. I can’t wait.
