Sweet Relief

Sorry I have not posted in awhile. After my mini meltdown last week, everything seems to have turned around -- thank God.

I have been so darn uncomfortable in my clothes that I finally broke down and bought bigger pants. I had no choice. My tight pants were making my life miserable. It is amazing how much your life changes when you finally put on something comfortable. Ahhhh! Relief!

Another huge relief is that my period finally stopped. I think the lupron injection is working. And my bloating is wayyyy down. I haven't taken my prescription diuretic lately because I haven't felt like I need to. My ankles are not huge like they were and my new bigger pants are more comfortable. I am planning to take it only when I really need it and right now, I don't feel like I need it.

And finally -- I am on vacation! Relief from work! haha! I am enjoying the fall weather in New Hampshire visiting friends and family. The fall foliage is a little past peak but I don't care. The weather has been nice and we're having a great time.

Then it's back to work next week and chemo #4 next Wednesday. Time flies...


  1. Enjoy your vacation!!! And I'm glad things got better. Now that you made me think of it, I do get in a worse mood when my pants are too tight.

  2. Enjoy your vacation Jen
