Just need to vent some. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving last week, know I'm last wishing it but my husbands grandfather passed away the day before the holiday and it was a long crazy week. Beside all the family drama side effects decided to pop up including my feet, ankle and legs swelling and my vision going all blurry. Just what you need when you have to wear heels for three straight days.
Anyway I go yesterday to get round 5 of chemo only to find out the nurse forgot to order my medicine. Have to go back this morning now for it.
But that doesn't mean I still didn't spend 4 1/2 hours there yesterday oh no! Because I have poor veins there is only one nurse who can feed the IV line and since she is off today she had to do it yesterday. Took her over 1 hour to fine a vein and feed it. I felt like a pin cushion. Than since I was already there they figure they hydrate me some so 3 more hours. Plus the doctor informed me that since my WBC always drops way too low they are going to go with 7 neurogen shots this round. I am so stressed and upset over this whole thing. I just want it o be over with.
I feel like I can't catch a break if I'm not sick from the chemo or shots my R.A is flaring really bad and I can't walk. The holidays are coming quick and I have been trying to do my best to get everything done so my kids will not miss out on anything but I have such few days of being well that's it hard and discouraging. I am nervous now that when I go there will be another mix up. Please tell me it gets better I know I am almost done, one more round to go after this but it was so much harder than I ever expected and starting to get to me know. This is my favorite time of year and I want to be able to enjoy it.
Thanks so much for listening and letting me vent it helped a lot.
You are all the best!
Lots of hugs
