Latest Update on Treatment..






I don't have many pictures of treatment so I figure I'll just write a bit to get everyone caught up on whats going on. Treatment has been going good.. no complaining here! I actually was really lucky because over Thanksgiving I had my first week off of chemo to get ready for scans. So since I had a break with nothing to do, I decided to throw a surgery in there haha. On Tuesday before Thanksgiving, I had surgery on my mouth. Lets just say... chemo has a way of screwing up just about everything! The surgery went good and I was even able to eat on Thanksgiving:) I just had and MRI, CT Scan, and PET Scan done this last week and the results from all of them were positive! My doctors can't see anything in them to worry about which is great to hear. This week I just started Irinotechan for my 3rd time. I get this chemo 5 days in a row and its a little bit tougher on me than the usual but its going good so far. The picture of my swollen arms above is from the MRI. The nurse put the I.V. for the contrast on the side of my wrist after 2 other tries in my arm. Once she put it in my wrist she kept shoving the needle in further and further and I could feel her popping the vein. I got in to do the MRI and the guy injected the contrast into the I.V. and it literally brought tears to my eyes. I couldn't figure out what the pain was but by the time I sat through a 45 minute MRI with my arm feeling like it was going to explode I kinda freaked out haha. So we went to get the I.V. out and I looked down at my arm and it was HUGE! The nurse had infiltrated my muscle tissue with the IV contrast! Anyways.. long story short, we won't be going back to that hospital! haha the other pictures are just some random ones. Me, Cam, and Crew are showing the manicans at Forever 21 what we are made of... The smiley face in pills is just the amount of pills I take at one time on a normal day:) I've learned you have to find happiness in small things! love you all!!

  9. An MRI scan is a safe and painless test that can provide detailed pictures of organs and other structures inside your body.
