Just a quick update on how my chemo treatments are going. Seems to be settling into a pattern each week – Wednesdays are chemo treatment days then either Friday or Saturday I have a bad day then the next day start to improve then I am okay again until the Wednesday. Another downside is sleeping – can’t seem to sleep more than 4-5 hours at a stretch then wide awake – apparently a side effect of the steroids which I also have to take. Wednesday night is the worse, usually only 2-3 hours sleep at the most even with a pill to help me sleep. Never mind at least I don’t have to go out to work and can rest in the afternoon if necessary. Also with hubby taking up all the TV time watching RWC I can stretch out on the sofa in the early hours of the morning and catch up on all my recorded programs!
And yes, as you saw above – I still have my hair! Perhaps I shouldn’t be making a big deal about this as it could still all fall out but so far, so good.
Another downside – it looks like these treatments will continue on relentlessly until the New Year, then will be followed by some maintenance treatments (providing I go into remission).
Ever hopeful we are in the process of booking a 2 week cruise at the end of March so please keep your fingers crossed that it all works out and I am well enough to do it. But – if we don’t book now we won’t be able to go anyway so it’s a risk we are going to take and it is something to strive for and look forward to.
Hoping you are all keeping healthy and well.
