the set back game has hit again. For those that haven’t heard about what happened with me last Friday after my radiation, I ended up having multiple mild seizures that I was able to communicate were going to happen ahead of time due to the fact that I have auras prior to. I was taken down to the emergency department where I ended up having around six mild seizures on my left side and needed Valium to stop them from happening/ from me having a grandmal seizure. I was released later that night after about 4 hours in the ED. Going back for radiation on Monday I had that fear/anxiety in my head of the possibility. But I powered through it and continue on. That leads me to today where I now have been told to take a break from my chemo drug due to the fact that my blood counts are too low. Now I’ll be able to continue radiation but will have to sit back and wait till my blood counts go back up and get the all clear from the doctors to start chemo again.

Back in June 2006, the summer before my senior year of high school I started this rollercoaster ride and was diagnosed with Leukemia. Then fast forward two years of treatment with chemo and a few hip surgeries including having both my hips replaced. I still managed to graduate high school in 2007 while fighting cancer and treating. I took 2 years college tuition as my make a wish and determined right there that I was going to beat cancer and be a college graduate. But little did I know that I was going to have another fight with cancer in the form of brain tumor come May 2013. A Grade II astrocytoma to be precise. I ended up having to put college on the back burner to fight this battle and I came out on top again. Now what brings me to why I'm starting this blog. I recently managed to fulfill my dream and graduated college on May 9th 2018. Unfortunately only to find out the very next day that my tumor had come back and appeared to be a higher grade.
