So what does starting chemo again mean. It means putting the garbage can back next to my bed. Making sure I eat before 6pm so that i can take a nausea pill 2 hours later. Taking that nausea pill I wait about half hour to 45min later to let it set in so I can take my oral chemo medicine. Here’s to hoping that i still get restful nights of sleep. For the round of chemo it’s called maintenance phase where I take oral chemo 5 nights in a row and then 28 days off. I’ll have to repeat that for a year.

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.
