I thought chemo brain would be waning along with the other side effects. Yet, I would be wrong. Today I showed up at the infusion center for my treatment only to recall, after reminders from the staff, that my next appointment would be two weeks from the last: meaning not today but next Monday.
Maybe it wasn’t chemo brain but just my missing the wonderful people at the infusion center. All was not lost, however, as I was able to get my blood tests done for next week. When I do something like this, I always feel quite shocked when in reality it is something that seems to happen more frequently than ever before in my life. Like the effects of the neuropathy that cause me to drop things. Sometimes I think I’m imagining it, but I know it’s not true because the occurrence of this sort of memory failure happened maybe once or twice in my entire life before metastatic breast cancer.
The good part of it all: a friend drove me there and back home, and we were able to stop for a treat at my favorite frozen yogurt shop. Yum, original tart yogurt with fresh strawberries, kiwi, almonds and mango.
