Yesterday I had the pre-treatment blood analysis and doctor visit. It was nice to hear from both the nurse and doctor that they think I am looking well. Much better than after the first treatment. I laughed at this and said I set the bar very low with treatment #1. haha! Things can only look up after that experience.
My neutrophil level was low yesterday, had another analysis this morning and the level is up and good to go for treatment tomorrow.
My feeling good days are really good. I feel back to normal, well almost back to normal. This may be partly because I have unplugged the alarm clock and wake when my body decides it is time to wake, or Vodka decides he wants to eat which usually comes first. Thankfully I go right back to sleep and wake up to find Vodka sleeping on the bed. Silly cat! I am now feeling well enough to resume normal activities within reason and still listening to my body when to slow down and rest. It is still a little bizarre that I feel better, for the most part, while undergoing chemotherapy than I did for several months leading up to the diagnosis. Go figure, the human body is a strange and wonderful thing.
The pharmacist I spoke with yesterday is determined to find the combination of anti-nausea medicines that will work for me and reduce the amount of yucky feeling days that I have. I would like that too. I told her if she could find some thing that would eliminate the sore throat and suck in the throat feeling she would be my favourite! haha! I am always optimistic.
Time to get a few things done around my house before I slip into feeling yucky mode and indulge myself with endless hours of movies and home renovation television programs. hmmm…so many ideas to renovate the bathroom in my little old house. 😉 Now to find a handy man! haha! Just kidding!!!
I sparkle on…one day at a time. 🙂
