I knew it wouldn't be easy. However, I thought that getting it weekly it might be kinder. I had my 2nd push on Thursday, was so hyped from the Decadron on Thursday and Friday that I went from 8a to midnight and had to take Ativan to relax and sleep. Woke up Saturday morning saw everyone off, and couldn't wait to crawl back in bed, where I have been until 7 tonight. Now I am showered, went to grocery store and feel better. but nowhere to go! And about 17 lbs heavier since the 26 day steroid treatment and decadron... hopefully this will be it. I am feeling like the pillsbury dough girl. Even the nausea is not curbing my appetite... that is scary.
My sister, bil, nephew, his wife and 2 young boys came Thursday and left Saturday morning from Minnesota, enroute to California. I am so glad they were here those 2 days as I was really able to keep up with them. We didn't leave the house except for dinner Friday night. I felt so bad that they were leaving when I went to bed Friday night, but woke up Saturday morning and was completely depleted! I went back to bed when they all left and other than using the restroom and getting something to eat, I was in bed until 7p tonight. I would wake up for an hour or so, go on the computer and then fall back asleep. Took Zofran Thursday and Friday which helped, but was nauseated and dizzy
It is day 12, and every hair folicle hurts! This will be #4 bald if it falls out. Lost it on A/C, lost it again when I went on Abraxane, it had grown back about a half inch when I started on Halvoran and lost it again. It grew back on Erubulin and is about 2 inches long now. Actually got a trim a month ago to even all the shaggy ends. Now, I am keeping my fingers crossed, but have a feeling I could even cross my eyes and it will still be gone!! This time it is harder and I don't know why?
