Chemo Comes To An End

I have not posted this chemo cycle like I have done the others … one post per day, because I didn’t want to post a series of DONE posts. Which at the moment is how I feel. DONE.

Fatigued

Yawn! That pretty much sums up this week for me. I’ve been tired every single day. This should have been the week my energy came bouncing back, but instead of bouncing, it hit the floor and played dead.

The Blahs Hit

The photo for today involves fog because right now I’m feeling a bit foggy. Today I was focused on the day job and got a lot accomplished.

Cycle 4, Day 2 – Chemo

My Status: Rested and hubs brought ice cream
Mood: Good
We had a little hiccough in getting started with today’s chemo … two hiccoughs.

The Aftermath

My Status: Headache-y
Mood: Cranky
Today what my body has been through in the last week caught up with me. Tired, headache I can’t seem to get rid of, and I’m retaining water like a camel.

Cycle 2, Day 3 – Hydration

My Status: Feeling okay
Mood: Good mood in progress
Today was pretty smooth, only 4 hours (supposedly 3 hours per my scheduled times, but we’ve had to throw the general time frames out with me).

Cycle 2, Day 2 – Chemo

My Status: Tired
Mood: Doing better
Another long one today, although we did manage to skip the whole allergic reaction thing. That is a huge positive.

Cycle 2, Day 1 Chemo

My Status: Head-achy & slightly nauseous
Mood: Hanging in there
Today was long. Reeeeaaaallllly long. For a lot of reasons. Where do I start?

Venturing Out

My Status: Feeling Relaxed
Mood: Amused
Today I actually ventured out of the house. Since having my treatments, I’ve pretty much been a hermit. Not intentionally…

How We Forget

My Status: Feeling Good
Mood: Content
Last night I was finishing up some work stuff and trying to figure out what my evening would look like, when I smelled a waxy, unscented, burning candle-like smell coming from downstairs. Denny was downstairs puttering around in the kitchen …

Day of Rest

My Status: Rested
Mood: Good
Sleep has been accomplished. And not only the drugged variety, which was interrupted by several trips during the night to excrete the extra fluids I’ve been carrying around, but this afternoon I had a honest-to-goodness, natural sleep, nap.

On the Quest for Oblivion

My Status: Tired
Mood: Relaxed
Not to sound like a broken record, but I’m tired today. I rested better last night than the night before, but sleep was still elusive. Fortunately, the issue with the prescription has been resolved, and shortly I will be floating in the fairy clouds pictured above enjoying a wonderful sleep.
