[VIDEO & AUDIO] A few steps backwards? Chemotherapy (and then some)

11:45pm. August 10th 2014. About to take my steroid drugs (Dexamethasone) – my face, neck, shoulders, arms and back of neck are still swollen from all of this the compression against my main vessel. 

How I’m feeling: A little overwhelmed from more information overload, in shock, disheartened, happy from an incredible day, grateful for the fact that every single day I’m having an even better understanding of who my ride or die friends/loved ones (old and new) are and shall I dare say, a little pumped for tomorrow? Mostly because I know this is all (and already has started) making me even more indestructible than I already am – and that’s an exciting thing. My fighting face is on. Do you have one on for me as well? Do it 🙂 Let me see it!

August 9th Instagram post (on my Facebook) after being discharged from Toronto General Hospital. I had just received disheartening not so good news – but I’m still smiling 🙂
