Despite the fact that I will be starting some heavy duty chemo on Tuesday, my hair will fall out in just a few short weeks and /or days; I still have some wonderful friends to be thankful for and everything in the world to live for. Last night I actually confessed to my husband that many women like Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan actually go to a spa to have their stuff waxed; not I. The chemo will do the trick. I won't have to shave my underarms, legs, face too for quite a while or until I am done with the chemo! I can accessorize with so many ear rings, wigs, scarves, and so much more!
My husband is still bummed but life goes on after chemo and it will for me without a doubt. I plan to document everything for this round of chemo. I plan to start the pill (Etoposide) tomorrow morning and will go to work for maybe half the day. I will take some time off since this round of chemo will be quite tough. There are lots of side effects and having the time off will allow me an opportunity to get enough rest and avoiding stress.
My experience in Pooping out of my feet!
This morning, I took my neighbor and friend Sharon in for a foot detox or ionic Foot Detox. I've done this a few times going to my hairdresser and spa and it's amazing; the feeling afterwards is amazing too! My skin will clear up, I will have that nice skinny feeling, I will do a nice dumper, (hey anything to go poo!).
That's just the reality of this cancer and this nice woman is giving me 1 detox a week or as many as we can schedule in. The Foot Detox or It's kind of like the foot pads that perhaps you may or may not have heard about, but it does deal with the reality that the bottom of your feet actually have over 2000 pores which control many bodily functions. For me, it just makes sense to do so since my bowels are getting obstructed so easily all the time.
This photo shows just 5 minutes of soaking and the yellowish brown color is from chlorine and salt is used to combat this problem.
The foam that you see here is resulting from lymph nodes and the dark color could be from my bowels., felt a little light headed but the pain in my abdomen subsided some (a level 5ish).
Wow! I just pooped out of my feet! Neat! Looks like poo! huh? It does feel amazing afterwards. The water didn't look that when I started and that black gooey poo stuff couldn't have come out of that little black box, you think? I know I'm full of shit so there go, evidence of the Ionic Scam! That scam helps clear up my skin, gets rid of painful head aches and we will continue this journey next time!
