Under treatment

Not so trendy, this outfit...

Every day (Monday-Friday) for 30 days, I'm getting radiation. And once a week during those 6 weeks, I'm getting chemo, too. In order to save my hair they gave me a cold cap, as seen here. I was meant to wear it for 2.5-3 hours, but after half time I had to give up. It was like sticking your head in a deep freezer. Imagine doing that for 3 hours in a row! I just couldn't handle it any longer.

To comfort me, the docs have said I won't be losing all my hair, it will only become thinner for a while until the chemo treatment is finished. Anyhow, the treatment is making me very tired. So that's why I've been absent so much lately. But I want to let everyone know that I truly cherish your visits and comments on my blog. They make my day a little bit brighter. I will be back doing the rounds to visit your blogs, too, as soon as I feel up for it. Thank you, all of you! :)

  2. Hi girl:)
    In situations and on posts like these...anything I write seems stupid:)

  4. Just found your blog all the way from Australia!

    I'm so saddened to read of your battles with cancer and the health system in Norway. My mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year and I know the struggles associated with this disease. But it amazes me how you always manage to find strength even in the darkest hours.

    Reading your blog, you are a true inspiration! I wish you all the very best with your latest battle and may your fighting spirit pull you through. Prayers will be sent from Australia tonight! Lots of Love xx

  5. Oh Sniff! I'm so glad you stopped by to give us an update! Don't worry yourself with making blog rounds. At least not for my sake. We know that your health is #1 priority right now. Just know that I've been keeping you in thoughts and prayers constantly! Sending lots of hugs your way, friend!

  6. Peace and healing light to you, there are many supporters behind you to draw strength from. Close your eyes and return to Paris...

  7. Darling, I wish you sunshine and bright spring thoughts - hoping you also encounter bright colors and renewal!
