Breast cancer update. I start chemotherapy next week, ASAP.
Just off the phone with the oncologist in Victoria.
They want me to start chemotherapy right away.
This is due to the lymphatic space invasion. I’m at a high risk, along with it being an aggressive grade 3 cancer.
Things have been stalled way too long (not due to me but the system) so this oncologist wants me to start immediately. I agreed. I’m terrified.
So next week I’ll be in Victoria for 2 days and will have my first chemo treatment and then come back home to Fanny Bay.
The next treatment will be in 3 weeks after that.
This way, poodle Teddy can stay in Fanny Bay as it will just be a quick 2 day trip away from home this time. I will not lose my pup through this!
It will give me time to get myself sorted out.
It’s no problem to transfer to Kelowna mid treatment later, with chemo so I can still keep my Okanagan (drier climate) dream alive.
Send me love and prayers and if you’re in Victoria, I’ll stay at the cancer lodge for my first treatment and use some of the funds raised to pay for my stay.
I’m fricken terrified.
