Yeah, no chemo again today. *sigh* Whatever, God. I'll just take it as it comes--You are in control!
My stomach has been bothering me over the weekend, and the last 2 days its moved to the lower bowel. Same place that was so inflamed and thickened my last 2 hospital stays. It hurts, but not as bad as before. I called the nurse this morning, because I figured we wouldn't be able to do chemo. She talked to the doc (Dr. Jahagirdar, my oncologist) and of course he wanted to see me. I had Alyssa go with me to drive, just in case he wanted to do a ct scan or something (I might not feel like driving after that). Rich felt bad about not going, but had some important stuff going on at work. That's ok, I just wanted someone with me. Anyways, the doc thinks its the c-diff infection again, because it can be hard to get rid of, and sometimes you have to stay on antibiotics for a few months. So, I'll find out in a day or 2 if that's what it is, and in the meantime I have to start taking antibiotics again.
Dr. J reassured me that delaying chemo another week is ok--it'll be 4 weeks after radiation and that's how long they usually wait anyway. He tells me this without my even asking--he knows I worry about not doing enough to kill all the cancer.
Hopefully next week I will be able to start chemo and continue the battle against those nasty cancer cells! At least I didn't end up in the hospital this time! Or even have a ct scan.
If the pain subsides I'll be enjoying more days off, maybe even try to do some more volunteering. But now I think I need a nap! I'm going to curl up in the chair and rest a bit. :)
