Round 1 of Cistplatin/Taxol on Tuesday. Nausea seems to be under control finally. Now I'm sick with some type of infection. They called me in an antibiotic today. Just took my temp. it was 101.4. I think it's some kind of sinus infection. Nose is runny, spitting out some yucky looking stuff. I have no idea how many hours I have slept today. Appetite is certainly improving.

Just needed to vent. College age daughter is coming to stay with me next week, so that should help. (emotionally at least :) Guess I just have to be patient with these antibiotics.

HOpe all of you are having a great weekend.

I know it feels like nothing is going right but things will get better, especially once the antibiotics start doing their job. So glad that the nausea is under control and that you have your daughter coming soon.

Praying that you continue to feel better.

you feel better soon. As if chemo isn't enough, you have an infection. I hope the medication helps you with the infection.

Hope those antibiotics work very quickly. Hang in there, girl. Please make sure to tell your ONC how yucky you felt after your first infusion. Sometimes they have to adjust the dosage. I'm glad your daughter will be with you... soak up some big hugs, you deserve them.
