Chemo Round II 10/12/12

herdizziness's picture

Wow, guess I forgot a few things about chemo, it was a 7 hour infusion day, and went very well. Tonight I put on my California gloves and they just don't quite do the trick, the feeling of frost bitten fingers came to mind as a way to describe it.
I made dinner tonight and went about my first bite, the jaw pain was incredible, I kid you not, I saw stars, it was intense, I remember it hurting the first time around the Oxy, but this time was way more pain. Christine said she dropped to her knees from her jaw pain and today I can say I totally understand that!!!
Then I decided to go to Jennie's page as I thought about her a lot today, and then tears came to my eyes when I got to her page, I had also apparently forgot that crying hurts like crazy too. I ended up holding my hands to my eyes to press on them and ease the pain, it didn't, that was worse then the jaw pain.
Must be my complaining day, twitches in eyes and mouth, well in the whole face have started, and my walking isn't so great, and my hands don't want to type or work quite right.
For the first time ever I had nausea all day, never threw up, just felt like I had to.
BUT...all in all a good day.
Marie is sending me gifts of East United States gloves and hat, after the cold made it's way through my West Coast gloves, I will be eternally grateful to her, life has it's "blessings"!!!!
the complaining one,
Winter Marie
