Chemo has already hit me last night. It hits me quicker and quicker each round. I was exhausted when I got home. Kim made me Movicol (for constipation as many anti nausea cause you this) and I passed out on the chair waiting. Nice work Kim hahaha. I was in bed by 7.30 pm.

My face is puffy, I put on 2.5kg from the 6hrs chemo fluid yesterday. Lucky, my dose today is only for 45 minutes.

I still have backlog of videos and photos to upload from yesterday. I have video with CEO of Peter Mac, my fave chef Jesse, my survivor friend and amazing story from melanoma cancer friend!

D85: ALL SHALL BE WELL

Yesterday, I said to universe to bring on the pain. Today, I receive news that I have to do daily radiation (Mon – Fri) for 5 weeks on my 7th round concurrent with my chemo.Universe has a sense of humour like me.

The good thing is I have one week less radiaton because they can’t see any tumour. Usually, they’ll do it for 6 weeks.

Today, I’m gonna say to universe may all who is affected by cancer or experiencing darkness will get healing and light. Hope this one comes true too.

I have to take deep breath and trust all shall be well.
