Week Count

I thought I'd take a look at just how much chemotherapy has been pumped into my system since last spring—looks like quite a bit! I have had a total of 33 infusions, which is about 7 months. I didn't get infused for five weeks during the pneumonia recovery, so I've actually been at this whole healing thing for 8 months now. EIGHT MONTHS. Wow. With the occasional nausea, the change in eating habits, the unpredictable fatigue, and the occasional moodiness, it is a lot like pregnancy. We'll see though—am I human (9 months), equine (11 months), or squalus acanthius, otherwise known as the spiny dogfish (18-24 months)?

I guess it will depend on what arrives. I'm voting for a horse!!!
