I've been told that side effects generally start on day 2 after chemo. I'm tired today, had a few queasy moments, body aches, lots of bathroom visits .... but, I'm hanging in there. Mom made homemade chicken noodle soup, which hit the spot. I can tell that I'm loosing some tastebuds though.
Christie stopped over tonight to visit. Glad she did because I haven't seen her in several days since she's been sick. She looked like a doctor with her blue mask on. Lots of Purell too. My laptop wouldn't turn on, so Tommy came over too ... he did a quick fix with the battery. So, I'm back in contact with the world.
I have to admit that I had a little pitty party today. Hope I don't have too many of them. Real downers. That's not generally who I am. I pray for strength as this is going to be a long haul.
Isn't it strange how life can be just moving along and then it all changes out of nowhere. When my sister died, we all had to live in the "new norm". It's difficult, but you have no choice. I have no choice. And I can't sit around feeling sorry for myself when there are others who are dealing with this canzer-thingy so much worse. So, I apologize for my rantings.....
And tomorrow is a new day.
Thank you, Jesus, for never letting me go.
