Another day and the clock is clicking – I’m counting down to my chemo treatment.
Here are some highlights from my day, – Started the day off with Oatmeal and raisins and big glass of Carrot Juice. I was bad though, because I had to have a cup of coffee. On top of finding out the I just got cancer, I caught the flu from my son and daughter with a horrible cough that has made me lose my voice.
Anyways, I still have that damn pain in my side and my teeth hurt, because last week my tooth broke out and a month before that my upper right tooth broke in half. I’m just a big mess.
Today I laid in bed and got some sleep since I hardly slept because I coughed all night long. It’s slowly getting better, but I hate it. Not only am I coughing all day and night long, its miserably hot and unbearable.
This afternoon I went to the hospital to get my blood work done. It took a little while, of course. The hospital in my town had their computer system crash. However, can I just tell you the blood draw was extremely fast.
The things I have struggled with today is NOT being able to eat. I had 2 glasses of the smoothie drinks [Carrot, Mango and cranberry] to help my immune system. But not only have I been trying to get my mind in a positive light.
I’m sorry I am falling asleep so I will continue in the morning. I have to get up early because I have to see the dentist and have the bad teeth in my mouth pulled.
My doctor told me NOT to have work on my teeth while taking chemotherapy – he said that it can get really infected and to have the teeth issue handle before I start.
My son got on the phone and scheduled an appoint me for me quietly.
Until tomorrow. Kisses….XOXOX
