I won't lie - this week has been no fun. Things move slow in a hospital & the chemo has been making me very sick this time, which is new for this routine. Hasn't really made me sick before. And along with the nausea comes a lot of anti-emitics that make me sleep. So I should be well rested by the time I get done on Saturday. Been watching my blood counts take a little drop each day as a result of more chemicals being pumped in.
They do unhook me from the IV every morning so I can take a shower - thats nice. I've learned the smell of chemo is disgusting. It comes out thru your pores and its just not a good smell. Showers help that a ton.
Its the highlight of my day when the girls & Kendall come visit each evening. Last night EB brought me dinner that she had made - carribbean chicken. Bless her heart there was no way I could eat. I felt so bad about that. Really haven't eaten anything since dinner on Monday. I'm surprised they haven't lectured me about this but evidently they think I have enough "reserved" fat to make it thru. No duh.
So please keep sending your encouragement, positive thoughts, and the like. They are all appreciated!
