Quick Update

09Mar10

Sorry I’ve been absent recently!  I actually made another vlog, but the sound didn’t work and I didn’t have the time to re-record the video.

Things have been going alright, I have been home for a while, recovering.  This round of treatment has been giving me more trouble than the first.  I’ve had some extreme stomach trouble– vomiting almost every morning before eating anything, and all day my stomach is just extremely temperamental.  The past few days my tear ducts have stopped working– so, although my eyes are minimally moist by nature, no extra tears have been coming to the rescue!  It’s extremely painful, especially when something gets into them.
I’m going to see the doctor on the 19th when I get my levels checked, and at that point I’ll ask about what I can do about my stupid tear ducts.  Although, I’m not sure I’d be willing to try surgery.  We’ll see.

I’ll be going in for a mini-treatment in May so that I can get scanned properly, but with I-131, so this will entail another week off.

In non-health related news, there’s some exciting stuff coming up, my birthday is tomorrow, and I’m heading to Portugal on the 22nd of March.
Mr. Asshole is still being an ass, and even more than just an ass.  Which makes things nice, of course.  But I’m pretty sure I’m in a good spot here, so, Mr. Asshole can go fuck himself- big time.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the “what if” question lately– and also about what is going to happen.  Every day it gets a bit harder to breathe- which I am sure is just secondary to the treatment working and the inflammation that comes with it.  But still.  It’s a bit disconcerting.  Uncomfortable, to say the least- especially when trying to focus on my future a bit farther down the road.
I’ve decided that after May, if nothing’s gotten too big or bad or anything, that I will hold off on any other radiation treatments for another 8-12 months so that I can freeze my eggs.  I’m afraid that the treatments/mini-treatments will effect my fertility earlier rather than later- considering my family’s early-menopausal tendencies.

Well, I’ll post my promised (mostly via youtube) vlog before I head to Portugal!
