Sherryl is continuing to rest at home and is focused on gaining strength following her two-week hospitalization. Richard takes her to the doctor's office each day to get an injection that bolsters her red blood cell count, which, in turn, ensures physiological readiness for the next cycle of chemotherapy.
Sherryl saw her surgeon on Wednesday, and post-surgery recovery continues to be extremely positive as she is healing nicely following removal of the cancerous lump and lymph nodes. Medication seems to be doing the trick relative to pain management, both white and red blood cell counts are replenishing at an even clip, and Sherryl will receive another round of chemotherapy on Thursday.
Sherryl misses being at day care very, very much, and continues to reinforce with doctors her intention to return to work as soon as possible. She is striving to feel more energetic when she can while yielding to the fatigue that has become part of the weekly chemotherapy cycle. She tells us she feels most tired the third day after chemotherapy treatment.
When she does not feel extremely tired, Sherryl's mind and speech are clear and focused on all that comprises the lives of her family and friends. She is very much looking forward to reconnecting with all the people, big and small, who are important to her. Note: If you're reading this Update, that includes you!
