Hi, I made it through a rough night of running to the bathroom. For some reason my chemo had me urinating every hour. I was so exhausted I unfortunately had an accident in bed. Later in the night, I fell asleep on the toilet and fell off the toilet. Thankfully my daughter heard me and helped me. What a night. In the morning I was nauseated and had a headache most of the day. By the late afternoon, the frequent urination got better and so did my nausea. Whew! I was able to put on a swim suit and get wet outside, as it was so hot again. I am not allowed to go in the pool until Wednesday as I just got my port a few days ago, but the water felt great. I relaxed outside for awhile and was able to eat some dinner. My daughter made soft polenta with shiitake mushrooms, button mushrooms and artichoke hearts as well as steamed broccoli and she even had me eat a bit of beef cutlet. I ate about half of my meal, but I was able to keep it down. Then, my daughter and son took me to see the new Spiderman movie. At first I did not want to go, but I felt better tonight and we went. It was really good and I made it until the end without having to got to the bathroom. It is really important to keep living and enjoy life. Besides’ I am healthy and my cancer is going away, I am healthy and my cancer is going away, I am healthy and my cancer is going away”. So, when you feel like you can get outside or out of the house, go for it. Life is a gift and we want to enjoy the gift.
Breathe, relax and have some fun,
