Post Chemo

Nik has been on my case to post again.  So here I am.  I am doing ok now.  The treatment was pretty easy, just lay in the chair and wait for it to be over.  I was pretty sleepy during the treatment because of the drugs they told me to take before I came.  So Nik says I slept for a good hour.  Which is good.  I like sleeping.  I was feeling pretty good (just a little unsteady from the meds still) right after the treatment, but I knew it could be getting worse as the day went on, so we hurried to the supermarket and back home.  And I was right.  I slept for another hour or so and then felt pretty crappy the rest of the night.  But I never threw up.  I was on both nausea meds but had not eaten since breakfast, which is not good.  So we made spaghetti for dinner and I had my noodles plain, like normal.  That made me feel a lot better, and I went to bed on another pill and slept great.   I woke up earlier than I wanted, so I am still pretty tired, but not enough to actually sleep.  Hopefully later.  Our house is a mess, so Nik and I are going to try and get some of if cleaned up for the rest of the week, since I go back to work tomorrow.  I am supposed to stay active, as much as I feel like it, so we are also going to go on another walk around our complex in search of the illusive ducks.

Over all, i am not 100%, but its not the end of the world.  I will let you know when it gets there.

Oh, and thanks in advance to Allison from work who volunteered to bring us dinner tonight.  Thanks!
