Hello all! Here is yesterday's installment in the Marty series. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~Whew... well, it's been almost 3 days since my first chemo session and I am dragging!!
Took the prescription drugs after I took some herbs and a spoonful of plain yogurt to calm my tummy. Finally got back to sleep about 5am! Ack! Ack!! ACK!!
Wed. I woke up alright, then went downhill thru' the day... great waves of nausea - more pills!!! More naps!!!... eventually deciding to have Maya's party at a local restaurant and cake at my nephew's house.. I couldn't bring myself to make a cake or clean the house up for company.. no way!!! Tired... tired... tired. At that point I was thinking that I understood why some people give up... so miserable/tired/indifferent.
Today is Thurs. I woke up all full of piss and vinegar at 7am and fizzled out by 8.30am. Ended up back in bed by 9.30am and it's 2pm now, I am ready for bed again!!! All I want to do is sleep!
So begins the new chapter of my adventure.... and I have to go through this **5** more times?!?!? EGAD! (mutters under breath... I love my Oncologist, I LOVE my Oncologist... *wink, weak grin*)
Feeling better today (8.23.02), tired still.. onc. says he'll tweak things for me a bit next time to make it better... hmm.. perhaps I should start asking for a big tray of Belgian chocolates alongside the chemo?!? *waggles eyebrows*
Be well all... I am doing my best too! *smiles*
