ok, I am sitting in the chemo chair as we speak....and here is what is happening..I had the first treatment Monday...all went fine. Tuesday came in and had blood work and bp done...all good. Went home and had a headache. Took a nap...woke up..headache...took another nap...yep, still headache. Went to bed and woke up again this morning with headache. Threw clothes on and got to oncologist for more chemo and told them about the headache. Gave me tylenol...nothing. Finally gave me Motrin and the headache went away...hallelujah...ok....day goes on - another 12 hour one....and my bp starts to go up, which is a side effect of this chemo. Finally, it is decided no more chemo today....and starting me on a mild hp med. Yeah! (btw...that is not a yeah I won the lottery, it is a yeah - lucky me) Have to come back tomorrow to see if I can continue the chemo as planned....or if I need to have bp meds up'd.
I hope I don't have to stay here all day tomorrow too. I don't know if I told you this, but they won't even let me go outside....and it is so pretty here right now. Thank God for laptops!
Thank you for all the encouragement and prayers. I check them all day long!
I did meet a wonderful fellow fighter today...we talked for several hours and that was good...oh, and I had a wonderful ham sandwich for lunch. Hey, gotta find joy in the day!!!
