Just an update on how chemo went. No rashes this time and no nausea thanks to the steroid drugs they give you. So I guess add a few more pounds to this “ole heifer”. One more to go…and maybe some of the puffy look will disappear. If not Dr. Bevers and I are going to have a longgggg discussion on the subject. Sent Bill to the Italian place on the corner by chemo to pick up lunch and had a huge spinach salad and some baked spaghetti. Had plenty left over for dinner. Knew I wouldn’t feel like cooking. Had the typical first night of chemo though. No sleep…housework time. Finally took an hour snooze about 7AM. Then back at it again. Sent Bill to the store to keep him out of my hair..well out of my bald head. Anyway…OUT! Three hours of peace. Well, almost. He called three times because he couldn’t find stuff in the grocery store. On the third time I said doesn’t anyone work at the grocery store anymore…someone who knows where things are? Reminds me of the time when I was still working he called me to ask me where the mayo was in the fridge. I told him exactly. He called back could not find it. When I got home I opened the door and there it was right next to the milk where I said it was. Do you know he actually accused me of planting it there! He got out of the hospital 3 days later.
So back to cleaning and cooking for the next few days. I know the tired part and foggy feeling is on it’s way. Talk to you all Monday on the update. Ran across a quote that I really liked from an unknown author. It goes like this:
Do what makes you happy. Be with who makes you smile. Laugh as much as you breathe. And love as long as you live.
