A lot of you have been asking how I am feeling…. well, I made it through the weekend! Fatigue set in as early as Friday morning but I never really got nauseous. I would start to feel nauseous and I would quickly take my medicine. I soon learned to set my alarm to take my nausea medicine and I was golden. I basically moved back and forth from the couch and my bed all day Saturday and Sunday.
My hands have some arthritis in them so when I would normally be a texting fool… I couldn’t even stand to pick up my phone. This is a side affect of the “red devil” or adriamycin they gave me in my chemo and also a side affect of the shots I get following my chemo treatments. I get three nuepogen shots the days following my treatments (Friday, Monday and Tuesday). This is to stimulate the production of white blood cells that chemo depletes. Side affects are aching bones and fatigue, much like when you have the flu.
The weekend was pretty uneventful. I did manage to download the third book of 50 Shades of Grey! And we even got a visit from my favorite little baby, Kennedy!
