My wonderful sister and chemo buddy, Kimberly, were partners again at Round #9! We arrived at 10:00 and were out about 1:15. I am still having terrible neuropathy in hands and feet. Dr. Sneed starting me on steroids for a month to see if this will solve the swelling and neuropathy. I can't tell you how hard it is to not be able to walk and when you do, to feel like you are walking on crates...horrible! I can handle the nausea and fatigue, but not being able to walk is terrible...Trying not to complain...I know that God is in control and He is taking care of me and that this will get resolved. I have also been having alot of tears running down from my eyes..Dr. Sneed said this is caused from the chemo...if it doesn't clear up, may have to have tubes put in my tear ducts..ten years ago, Dr. Sternberg told me that we got rid of the cancer, but sure made a train wreck out of me....looks like this is the case now too,,inability to walk and fingernails falling off! I know there is a reason and that God, "The Great Physician" has the plan! I trust Him!

After chemo, Kimberly treated me to a wonderful lunch of grilled salmon, baked sweet potato and salad...delicious! We then went for manicure and feet felt sooooo much better. Asked adviced of what to do to make my fallen off nails presentable for Todd and Ashley's wedding. Good news is I am having some hair growth...wonder if it will be curly this time...whatever color it comes back in this time, that will be the color it more spending money having it colored!

I guess the steroids overpowered the Ambien tonight...but that's okay, I can catch up later! Very grateful the chemo seems to be working!
