(19-02-07) Basic Updates

Not a lot of news today. It’s kind of the calm before the storm, I think. The doctors eased up on some of my drip bags these past few days; I think they’re trying to let my side effects settle more before dosing me up with two vaccines tomorrow.

My foot bath water was orange today, instead of black or brown. That means my joints were getting detoxed instead of my liver. (Sorry, Tyler – no pictures today. I’ll try to remember to bring my camera so that I can feed your foot fetish with photos next week.)

Stomach still hurts. A lot.

I haven’t seen Dr. Rubio, Sr. all week; he’s been at a conference. The other doctors here continue to be very attentive, though.

I’ve decided I need to plant plenty of cabbage in my garden this year. When I leave here, they will send me with a home program, to continue some of the treatments I am getting here … and considering they use 1.5 cabbages on my body every day, I’m going to need a steady supply. Fellow gardening friends in Phoenix, any tips for how to NOT kill my cabbage in my garden this year would be extremely helpful; I have not had the most stellar track record with gardening these past five years….

I found a morning walk route that will help get some tone back in my leg muscles. That was pretty much the highlight of my day.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Invasive Breast Cancer in October/November, 2015. This blog is my way to process my experience and allow my loved ones to have ongoing updates about my journey.

  1. Oh, my dear Tarah…I feel such a fool that I hadn’t ever pursued a friendship with you before…you are going through a very intensely difficult time, I know. You seem strong, and your insights are an inspiration to others who may need it. You always have been a fearless fighter and defender of everyone. Stay strong! And I know it may not be much, but if you need to talk, or even wish to, then please do.

  2. @JudithPower – Thanks, hon! I appreciate the kind words … although I don’t know about that reference to never bring friends. I have some very clear memories of us in 9th grade history, 10th grade English Honors with Ms. Macchia, and 11th grade Trigonometry. Our paths crossed more than once, for sure!


  3. I never realized how much Jack cared about you. I think its so nice that your up in his head and he’s commenting to you. And that he considers himself as Uncle Jack. Lol. It’s pretty cool. I’m happy that they gave you a little break from all the treatments I really do think that your body needed a short break to refresh and calm down some. Love n hugs my sweet daughter.
