I had a tough first week again after the second round of chemo. Less headache, but more stomach aches. I guess I get to choose which I like less. I had a slight fever (sign of infection) but I was able to flood it away with lots of liquids, vit. C, and rest. I finally went for a bicycle ride early yesterday morning. It was the only real exercise I got in a whole week. Becky dropped me off in Leonardtown a couple of days ago, at the knitting store, because I needed a change of scenery. I knitted for a few hours there and enjoyed that. (Anyone who is going up to Town for a few hours? I wouldn’t mind going now and then again…) I was very upbeat a couple of days ago, but like a roller coaster, I feel down today. And there is no good reason for it. People have been so very nice to me: People dropping off gifts of drawings their children did for me; notes to get well; Nicole made a delicious roast beef sandwich for me yesterday (I was seriously depleted of red meat from my bone marrow working overtime); Another friend offered to bring me out to lunch when I’m up to it; a friend dropping off electrolyte mix for dehydration, etc. Thank you all!
I wish the heat would let up. 99 degrees is too much for me to go outside. The air quality is bad outside too. I’ll just keep plugging along. I’m about 1/2 through the chemo treatments.
