Well, here we go again. As I write this it is the Friday after this infusion and one more time I have a chemo pump hooked up to my port, squirting tiny globs of seriously strong stuff into my jugular. By this time tomorrow evening I’ll be feeling the full effect. I don’t expect it will be all that much different than last time, so I’m eating lots of good high protein foods along with leafy greens and blueberries, yada yada. Why? Because I won’t be interested in eating much of anything for 4-5 days after tomorrow.
It’s grey and rainy outside as usual. I don’t think we’re going to have any kind of break in this for a couple more weeks I think. We have the doggie towels out, ready to use when we come back in from walkies. Yes, the dos walk me daily.
There’s really nothing to report right now. Guess I’ll go over to the drug store and give them my latest prescription for more zofran. I go through it pretty quickly but not excessively, just keeping a balance between degree of nausea, digestive effects of the chemo working one way against the zofran working the opposite way. Dr. Picozzi dictates to his assistant, “nausea level at 2”.
Nah, that’s a crappy way to end a post. Let me think of something better. um………………………….
