Second round

Today was the first day of the second round of chemo. Just like last time it was my long day, mom and I got in there at 8:30 and we left at 6:00. Getting to watch the Olympics all day helped the time pass by pretty quickly. I am not feeling the best tonight so I am hoping this isn't a bad sign on how this week will go.

I started losing my hair last week, this was one thing I was alright with until it started happening. It's kind of a shock to see hair everywhere when you are getting ready in the morning. Kyle and I went and looked at wigs on Friday just to get a feel for what I would need when the time comes. Right now it isn't real noticeable to everyday eyes, but I can defiantly tell. I went and saw Melanie on Sunday to see what she thought I needed to do. We just trimmed the bottom up to about my shoulders. She didn't feel like it was time to shave it but thought it would be a good idea to get a wig ordered pretty soon, so that is what I am doing tomorrow.

Friday I had my appointment with Dr. Koeneke to discuss my labs and if anything needed to be changed for this week. He was real happy with everything and said all my numbers were great, so that was good news.

Sarah, my roommate from college came up Saturday to experience the Manhattan life! We went out to eat and then came back to the house and hung out. It was so nice to have her up here and to get my mind off things considering I was dreading chemo on Monday.

Tomorrow should be alright, I go in at 10 and the woman's team finals for gymnastics start at 10:30 so that is what I'll be doing while I am sitting there. I will update everyone at the end of this week. Thank you for reading!



  1. Prayers for you this week! And if you lose your hair, I think the team girls should shave their heads in your honor! :-) Sending healing vibes your way!


  2. Continuing to lift you up in our prayers while you kick out round 2..
    Stay strong girl, you will still be beautiful without hair, although I will miss your hair its always so cute.
