More Adventures In Chemo

Friday I had a nice, short day at work.
One of the service guys was just pulling into the yard when I arrived and he got out of his truck and gave me a hug. I like hugs!
I talked to both of my former bosses, one was on his way out so we didn't visit much. The other one talked to me for quite a while....they miss me. They gave me a happy retirement card with a couple of gift cards in it. APPRECIATED!!!!
I had errands to run after work, and did them quickly b/c I was tired. I can't really explain it, but it has to do with my eyes, I think the sun is too bright for me. I just want to shut my when I got home, I did!
Our grandson called and woke me up, he asked if he could come over a day early and stay 2 he's here. I mostly napped all evening and hubby ran grandson J's bathwater and made a pizza for supper. No one gets much out of me the the week after chemo.
Saturday I napped quite a bit too, good thing our grandson is a couch potato and likes to watch TV or play on the computer. 
As I am laying in bed it seems that every bone, muscle, joint in my legs/feet ached. My knees often do, but this was everything.......for several nights. It seemed to be better when I woke up this morning. 
I also developed another, new side effect - diarrhea.... That's been going on for a couple of days too....hope that goes away soon!
It's funny b/c the first 2 days after chemo I was good....then wham! Bam! it hits me. thankfully I should have 2 good weeks. Wish me luck! I just want to get my house back in order after the grands spent the week. I do have some activities planned for this week.....let's hope my plans come to fruition!
Happy first week of August!!!

  1. Linda, thank you for sharing this. It gives me an idea of what to expect should I find that I have to go through chemo. I go see the oncologist this week and will find out. I pray for you daily and hope you are getting stronger. I am thankful you always seem to have a positive outlook on life and you haven't given up hope. We serve a mighty God and I know He is watching over you!
