Friends and loved ones whose company peels the pain and dreariness away:
I am finally on the otherside of my first chemo cycle. While Saturday wasn’t too bad, I didn’t push as much fluid (80oz) as needed on Sunday and Monday. The result was the chemicals weren’t leaving my system, making me extremely nauseated. I didn’t eat hardly anything either. Tuesday I got back in to Kaiser and they gave me 2 hour glucose and saline infusion. Much better. Appetite coming back and less nausea on Wednesday. Today I am getting another 2hour saline glucose infusion, with a final one on Sat. Feeling a lot better today.
Ive learned lot this first cycle and will be better prepared for round two on the31st
Many heartfelt hugs to all of you who give me strength. Sometimes I spend an afternoon watching cable Tv and get disheartened by all the sarcasm, pettiness,criticism and competitiveness. Then I read the kindnesses of people whose lives I am fortunate to have crossed and I remember what a truely wonderful world it is.
Big Hugs… Alex
