Today was my fourth chemo of eight… I’m half way through! I’m almost dreading the next four as they are a new drug Paclitaxel (for me) that can cause numbness in fingers and toes….. and I MUST knit, it’s my drug of choice!! Apparently Melissa Etheridge stopped hers as she was scared (justly so) it might permanently affect her career.
I’m going to ask for the cold gloves (blood vessels constrict, less drug to fingers) and try to endure them (on and off) for the four hours it takes to infuse this one.
Today my doc said that I had a great support ‘knitwork‘!
