First of all....I am doing better. Today was a short day so I came home and slept 5 hours.
Last night was NOT a good night. The problem I am having is that the drug they are giving me causes elevated blood pressure. So not only am I taking a new chemo drug, I am having them try to find the dosage for the b/p.
I don't know if it was stress, or combo of drugs...but I was up every hour on the hour. I was sick to my stomach once....and I was just uneasy. They gave me permission today to use Advil PM so hopefully that will help.
All in all, today has gone much better. What a week!
And to answer your questions about going outside yesterday...per the protocol of the drug, I had to be "watched" at all times, so I could not go outside. But that is over now.
You guys are so great to check in and encourage me. It really helps me. I must admit, emotions have been very high this week. I don't do "sick" very well.
Prayerfully, for me and my hubs....we will sleep tonight.
