Thanks for all the well wishes - it's defintely a rough battle. I've always been kind of a high energy individual, and the damage both the cancer and the chemo have done to my body is hard to deal with. I used to be able to walk my dog for hours and miles, and now I'm reduced to a block or to.
It's very difficult to get used to, and I wonder if I'll ever get back to any semblance of the strength and mobilty I've enjoyed most of my life. I hope so - I still feel like I have a lot I want to accomplish. I feel worse for my dog than me, we take shorter walks, and I can tell she wants to go farther. I want to take her, but it's gotten too hard.
I've gotten to the point where I can't differentiate what's a cancer effect and what's chemo, but I guess it really doesn't matter. I've just been doing what I can.
Anyway - thanks again for the messages. It definitely encourages me to fight on!
