Cycle 11 of Xeloda, troll dolls, and summer reading.

Hello friends!

Wow, what a difference a day makes. Yesterday I had zero energy and felt super quiet and unfocused. Today...(probly cause it is the last day of cycle 11, and I am excited to take a break from chemo for a week) I feel motivated, and bubbly! I even managed to have an unplanned lunch outing with my daughter. Spontaneity is awesome! Doing random things on the spur of the moment is something that everyone should do more of. Schedule some spontaneity! Hahaha, no, really just be more random, its FUN.

So, after said random lunch outing, I had a burst of blogging fever. I decided to share with YOU the image of the kind of troll doll I had when I was a kid.

Xeloda Cycle 11 part two.

Hello my friends,

Let me begin by saying there is no video blog/vlog this week. I'm not sure what my problem is. I've sat down to film several times and ended up deleting what I had filmed. Intentionally deleting it I mean. I just found what I had to share with you to be negative and sarcastic. Now don't get me wrong, sarcasm is one of my best features, Haha! but I want to be as upbeat and positive as possible with you all. Especially if you too are going through cancer treatment. The last thing you need is to read about someone else's negative stuff. I will still be one hundred percent honest with you, I just want to be "glass half full" about it. Meaning I want to be optimistic. I just haven't been myself this week. My mood is a quiet and reflective one. Maybe that is why I have been having trouble talking to you to film a video.

It is in the back of my mind that the cancer is back. Or perhaps has spread. My right chest wall is swollen …
