The pain started yesterday. Started the same way it did last time--I start to get a little achy in the morning, and by evening I hurt all over. I took 2 Percocets last night, and that didn't even take the pain away! But it does take the edge off, so its bearable. I ache all over, but the worst is from the hips down. I really want to know what it is about the Taxol that causes this pain. I'll try to remember to ask my onc. next time I see him. I couldn't find anything online about it--other than that Taxol does cause pain, but not why or how.
Yesterday I was really tired too. That happened last round too--one day of being really tired all day. Today I've hardly been able to get out of the recliner, but that's mostly because I was awake a lot last night, and the drugs are making me really "out of it" this time. I'm hoping (and praying!) that I'll just have a few days of this, then several days of feeling good!
We have almost finished painting the bathroom. I think the painting is done--just some clean up left now. Rich did most of the work. I wanted a light purple color, but its more like a light purple-ish pink. We are going to leave it for now, and buy the purple towels and rug that I want. We'll live with it for awhile, and maybe add one coat of a little darker paint. I really want to get Shonna's old room (my new office/spare room!) painted soon too! I just have to decide what color I want.
Shonna is doing well at college--making friends and finding her way around. She's been a little sick, but is starting to feel better. I really miss her--its been a month since I've seen her!! This is harder than I thought!
There was a lot more I wanted to say, but my eyes are having trouble focusing--better give them a rest. :)
God is GOOD!
