This 1st round was pretty easy. I thought it might be a little worse because I've this chemo before, but I guess it had been long enough, so it was like starting over. I felt lousy Fri. thru Sun., and then just a little nausea the rest of the week. Even today, after a big lunch, I ended up taking a Zofran. Felt much better within a half hour.
While out shopping today I bought a scarf for chemo. Thought I should have something nicer than just a plain old winter scarf! I don't know if I'll need it for this next round, but I'll have it with me in case I do. I also have tea bags in my "chemo" bag so if I start having throat problems from the cold (usually starts when I'm almost done getting chemo, and I start losing my voice) I can have some tea. I haven't tried that before, but I'm hoping it will help.
I tried to eat some sherbet 2 nights ago, but my lips stiffened up and my mouth started hurting. Oh well. I could probably handle it now. I would take small bites and eat it slowly. I just had a caramel apple tho, so no sherbet for me tonight--maybe some popcorn tho!
Haven't been down to see Brennan in a few days, but he is doing really well. They moved him to a different room for stronger babies--a "feed and grow" room. No more oxygen or bili lights! Rachel is doing really well too. Took her to Target yesterday--thought she'd be real sore, but she did fine. Just tires easily! I'm so glad she lives close by! Only 5 minutes away (if that!) .
Monday I plan on going up to the school to help out 1 of the kdg. teachers. I help with copying, filing, cutting, whatever! I did mention tho that I don't want to be around the kids much. I'm nervous about getting sick. I haven't really talked to my doc about it (the flu) yet, but I plan to on Wed. A nurse told me I can get the shot there, so we'll see what Dr. J says about it.
Well, that's my update, in case anyone is checking :)
Love and blessings!
