Things seem better....

I have gone the longest amount of time since I started this chemo without having to stop. The blood pressure issue seems to be much better. Hope it stays that way.

I am suffering from a bit of fatigue. I found out there are numbered levels to fatigue. I think I am at a 2. I can still do some basic housework and get myself dressed, but I can't seem to do a lot of walking. Walmart and Costco...they are out for now. I have never used the riding carts...but I may have to start. I did go out today for a bit....picked up some ribbon and stuff...came home totally pooped! The doctor feels this may level out a bit when my body gets used to all the meds I am on.

One of the things that seems so strange to me is that one of the known side effects of this chemo is hot flashes. Now I can have hot flashes on my own....so I thought I would be in for it....but it seems, at least right now, I am so cold.

I also told my doctor that I would no longer take the iodine for the CT scan. I just get too sick and they will have to do it without it.

I am looking forward to the weekend. Next week I have 3 days at doctor's offices...I don't know how my life got to this...but it is what it is!! Have a great weekend and I will talk to you next week. And as always...thank you for your encouragement and prayer.

I hope to see you get your energy back as well. Its not to good of a feeling when you try and start something and get very weak at the onset.I as well am allergic to scan dye.Its fast working for me as soon as they did it just once I broke out immediatly after injection.

Wishing you all the best!
