New chemo day 2

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!!!

Ceekay you have to be one of the most inspirational women I know and I know so many especially with Cancer. I know you don't have that many choices and you are doing what you have to do but it is the way you are doing it that I am so impressed with....God Bless you and may tomorrow be a bit more gentle than today was........:-) Hugs

Ceekay you are just so amazing.......to be going thru what you are going thru and still some how find some humor.....I wish you could at least go outside .....and breathe in the SUN! Why is it you can't go out....I imagine they like to keep a close eye on you to monitor everything....I so hope tomorrow is an easier and shorter day for you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Good Morning Ceekay,
I hope today is better then yesterday. So glad you have your laptop on hand. I am sure it helps the time pass and keep you in touch with everyone. And, maybe you can get one of those ham sandwiches again. Sounds yummy and you so deserve to enjoy it.
Keep the great attitude with humor, that and God will see you through.

Hugs, Celestina Marie

Good morning!
It is a beautiful day in So Cal already - but it's getting a little to warm . . . It is March after all. I think if I were you I'd be thinking about the 115 degree days ahead and just stay inside and enjoy the a/c! LOL. You are so fortunate that you even feel like going outside!
You are doing great - and I know they are really long days. Is tomorrow the last - are they weeklong treatments?
Thinking about you all day long . . . wow! You must be getting a lot of blog hopping done! :)
You have a positive day and let us all know how it goes.
Big hugs! Me.
