On Wednesday I had lab work and a doctor appt. I wasn't sure if I was having chemo or not so I took my dr bag along. Doc said my blood work was good so off to the chemo chair I went. One of the first things I get is benadryl and that makes me very sleepy. That is when I send my driver home and I just close my eyes and rest.
As I am getting settled in the chair the nurse brings me my drink of choice - ginger ale. As soon as I took a drink I said I want a steak sandwich! (it's a joke with one of the nurses and me). But I really was hungry for one and I haven't had red meat for months....it just turns my stomach. Maybe because I was off chemo for 3 weeks my appetite has returned. On the way home Kevin picked up a tenderloin and grilled it for sandwiches........it was good, I had 2!
Chemo seems to energize me for about 2 days so I was on a roll last night, I was ambitious and stayed up later that usual. I don't remember what was so funny but I was laughing about something that night....Kevin was seriously getting worried.
I think since I had the drain put in and I can breath again I am starting to be my old, spunky self....a good feeling. The next day when I had my port flushed I was telling the nurse how chemo energizes me and she said that is the 'de????', (one of my chemo drugs), they call it the poor man's cocaine.....I am certainly not sure that's the way to get any cocaine....but I don't have a choice in this matter. It's kinda funny in a weird way though.
Happy to say I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
