It's been a pretty rough weekend here. Because of my hospital stay last weekend, my treatment was delayed by a day, getting it on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. That put my disconnect from the pump on Friday, but since I have a PICC, I was able to do that myself. Friday was my mom's birthday and my dad hosted a lovely dinner party at a nice restaurant for her and invited all of us kids along with their siblings. I was able to remain awake during the dinner but by time we got home I couldn't function anymore.
Saturday was much the same thing, going so far as sleeping on my bedroom floor for an hour because I couldn't get up from the floor and on the bed. It was so bad by that evening, my sister had to start and stop my IV antibiotic drip while I was barely awake. It really scared the family pretty bad.
By Sunday, I was more with it, but the cracking on my hands has got worse than ever before. My onc had said that they should start getting better on the Zaltrap, not worse! Even now, it's very painful walking or picking things up. I have to use two hands to pick up even the lightest items and typing is agony and messy. That's why I haven't posted in several days.
I'm just getting so tired of all these set backs lately and am really feeling like my body is betraying me. I know that there are others who have it much worse and that things can easily go that way, but I still feel so very weak (physically as well as emotionally.)
