I was sitting at the computer a second ago and looking up how long it might take for my red blood cells to replenish, when I can expect hair, and just burst into tears. 

My last chemo was two weeks ago.  The tiny hairs that were growing are falling out again.  I am supposed to start taking Tamoxifen in two weeks.  I don’t know what happened to my back but suddenly walking is excruciating.  The treatment is over but the fallout (pun unintended) is not. 

I am so glad I don’t have to do chemo again next week.  I can’t wait to see what happens in week four, five and six after chemo.  I am crying now but I know that in those weeks, I’ll start feeling better and better. 

By then, some of these tears might actually be from happiness!
