Its been a while…but I have been busy.


Sorry it has been such a long time since I have posted. Since then I have been back to work(oh joy) and catching every germ that seems to be going around!!! Has this happened to anyone else in remission? Please someone tell me they have had this same issue!!

My immune system seems to have taken a vacation on me and I am the one suffering for it!!(I am the one that needs a damn vacation!!) I have been on 6 antibiotics in 9 weeks, three ear infections and the rest repertory infections. WHAT THE HELL!! I thought I was over being sick!! Needless to say the antibiotics have ben recking havoc on my intestines (too bad its not helping me loose weight!!LOL) I had a visit to the ENT, had a CT scan of my head (surprisingly I do have a fully function brain, however does not always feel that way with the memory loss with the chemo and hysterectomy, but I was shown YES I have a brain lol.) Thank god nothing there blocking anything in my ear or sinus. So for now its wait and see and deal with my crappy immune system. I actually bought the Nutra Bullet and have been forcing down my veggies and fruit that way, with the hope it will help me get better. Its actually pretty good and I do enjoy some of my concoctions, but they almost always come out looking like sludge!!


Now my next adventure. I have my 6 month mammography next Monday. OH WHAT A PLEASURE IM SURE IT WILL BE!!! I am usually not nervous but this one…well lets just say its making me a little batty. After my scare in October with the two biopsy’s I am worried there will be something else there. Does one ever stop worrying??? I am sure my breasts will have some type of surprise in store for me, I just know it.

I tell myself positive thoughts, positive thoughts. I know I will get though this one just like I do the others. I guess what does not kill you only makes you stronger. That is defiantly the case with this chick!!!

Cancer didn’t kill me, it just makes me want to keep on fighting more!!


About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!

  1. Hi Heather
    I stumbled across the fundraiser held for you
    Last summer at Harborside and realized it was for you. I’m glad to hear your treatments went well and you are in remission . I tried reaching out to you, it’s been a really long time and I figured you may not want to reconnect . I totally understand , and I want you to know I’m happy to hear you are doing well.
