It doesn’t get any easier as each session passes and the next comes along. I was so nervous this morning and was feeling a bit nauseas. I even thought about calling in sick! The nurses thought that was quite funny at the thought of me calling in sick to chemo.
In any case, all went well as per usual. Sam answered all the questions for me, I can never remember what I have been through the previous three weeks. The days all just roll into one.
What made today even better was coming home to a sensationally clean house. Like, I mean, really really clean. Yep, my cleaner was back and had done another fantastic job. (Thanking that family of mine again!!).
So far, I am feeling all sterioded and Upped and fine. From memory, the previous two sessions saw me in bed pretty soon after getting home. Having said that, I haven’t eaten yet.
There was a little old lady having chemo next to me today and we were only separated by a curtain so I could listen to her conversations and the poor lady has so much difficulty eating that is often hospitalised for up to a week following her chemo. I felt so awful for her and seriously, that woman looked like a little bird, she was tiny and didn’t look like she could afford to skip a meal let alone lots of meals. Then I heard her ‘know it all’ daughter carry on to the nurse how she had cooked an amazing slow cooked lamb shank dish for dinner last night and her mother (the little bird) would have nothing to do with it. Well guess what daughter who ‘thinks’ she knows it all, if some one has difficulty swallowing (which is what the bird is struggling with as well as a loss of appetite), you would not serve them up lamb shanks! Geez, some people annoy me. If i could have given the bird some of my weight, I would have been more than happy to give her some.
Have I told you that I need an injection 24 hours after chemo every three weeks? Well, check out the price of it….
I think that is about it for now. I haven’t been around much lately due to some virus that has kept me sleeping and resting a lot. Hopefully I’ll have some energy back soon.
