Cycle #1 Regorafenib Done

Or it's not done until my week off?  I'm going to consider it done because I took my last four pills of this cycle.

This is honestly the hardest chemo I've done, and if you've been following along, I've done pretty much everything.  Aside from being tired almost all the time and having no appetite, my legs are really bothering me.  I can't sit too long, I can't walk around too long...laying in bed feels pretty okay but I can't really lay in bed all day.  It's really frustrating.  I can't sit long enough to knit.  I can't walk enough to take the kids on a walk. 

I talked to Eric about not doing this chemo anymore.  After some conversation, I think I can take this week off and start the second cycle.  My goal is to get to the ct scan so at least we can see if this junk is doing anything positive. 

I didn't know it would be this hard.  Maybe my body has just had enough chemo, I don't know.  I'm feeling really down, and praying that this next week off the pills will give my body enough of a break so I'm feeling better.


  1. Hi Sheri,
    We will just keep praying for you and your family. I am so sad that you are going thru all of this. I remember when Jasmine went thru a bunch of pills every day and she was so sick. God keeps reminding me of Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

  2. Sheri,
    It sucks so much that the chemo is making you feel so sick. I hope that means it is kicking ass. I love you and think of you every day. Xoxo,Jehan

  3. Hey Sheri - I really hope you get some relief and a good break during the time off. And I hope that it's making you feel so dreadful because it is kicking the cancer to the curb! When is the next CT scan?

  4. Sheri,
    We're praying for you always. I wish there was more I could do. I hope the week off gives you some time when you can feel like yourself and take a break from all the discomfort.
    Love, Sara & the rest of the Kosmicki's

  5. Sheri, I wish there was more I could do for you! I hope this week gives you a break and a positive frame of mind to handle the next month. Keep fighting, as God is working his plan. I love you, wish I could be there to take care of you. I guess that is what being a Mom is all about. Please don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. Remember I love you lots, and I am praying as always. Love, Mom

  6. I've got a bunch of people praying for you! I hope you get all sorts of positives in the next week or so!

  7. Sheri, Hope for some good news on the ct scan with the new drug. Thinking of ya. Keep fighting. Doug
