This IS worse than dating!

It has NOT been a great couple of days. I'm starting to think cancer sucks. Monday was radiation and chemo. I was fine until about 10pm a headache and nausea hit hard. A friend let me lay my head on his shoulder, and honsetly, that helped more than anything. Yesterday Jill took me to radiation. It was #2 of 35 treatments. I have lost some hearing and taste already. I am going to an audiologist today to figure out the hearing loss. 
I am sorry for not returning calls and texts yesterday. It was a pretty bad night. Got out of bed to puke and that's about it. Please feel free to pass along my blog address to those who might be interested, as it looks like I won't always have the energy to explain what is going on, although I very much do appreciate everyone's concern! I will try to blog every day or so, and will log into msn when I feel up to it. 

Happy news! December will be my month off radiation, and the end of December, I am going to see Neil Diamond. It is cool to have something fun to look forward to, and the Diamond will be mellow enough I think.

Tracy, I'm so sorry you have to go through this. It seems to me that the really good people are always the ones that have to deal with this horrible disease, and you are certainly a good person! I know this is easy to say, but keep your sense of humor...that helped my friend during her difficult times. You have a lot of people that love and care about you, and I am one of those people. Please let me know if you need anything...anything at all! Talk to you soon!

God grant you the serenity to accept the things you cannot change, the courage to change the things you can, and the wisdom to know the difference, day to day baby, God bless...

Hey Tracy,
I know you are bogged down lately with all the calls and visitors, that's how you know you are loved! If you need anything you know I'm just a phone call away and I can be there in minutes. I will view your blogs and stop in to check on you, but not so much that you despise me.
Keep the faith girl and when you feel bad just focus on those pants I brought you and know that you will fit into them in no time :D
Love Ya, Kim
