So, Friday was an ok day, like I posted. Was able to get out and do a few things. One would think that meant each day would get a little better. Well, I certainly thought wrong. Yesterday I started out in the morning with nausea, and it pretty much stayed with me all day. I was able to sit on the couch with the laptop, and read a little, so at least it wasn't a bed-ridden day. Today is pretty much the same. I had my pump removed last Sunday, so I thought I would be better by now! Ate some applesauce and crackers in bed, and took my meds. Glad Rich and the girls made it to church. Sounds like I missed some good worship. I will probably listen to the sermon online later.
Rich is gone most of the day, so I'm going to take the Sunday paper and computer back to bed. Awhile ago, while everyone was at church, I found that I had fallen asleep sitting up in bed with crackers on my lap! So, I'm thinking I'll be sleeping more than reading! That is mostly because of the Ativan. I try to just take 1 at a time to spread them out, but I'm so tired of nausea right now, that I'd rather take 2 and sleep.
Wed. I get my blood drawn again, and see the oncologist. I'll talk to him about the nausea, because I know there are other drugs out there (Emmend, Reglan), that might help. (or because I'm not actually vomiting, I should just put up with this?) But now we'll have to wait and see how sick the 5FU makes me, because I won't have the Oxaliplatin again until after radiation which will be around the end of July. I'm not sure which chemo drug causes more nausea, or if it is the combo of the 2.
Right now I just want to get thru another day, and pray that tomorrow is at least a little better!
Love you all! And thanks for your prayers!!
