I was actually hungry and able to eat today. I will be having my second dose of my double chemotherapy medication on thursday. I was told that just when I felt good the “double whammy” would come next. That’s all goo though as I am so grateful to feel more “normal” today. I decided to tell my daughter we should get some dinner out and take a ride. So, that is exactly what we did tonight. In fact, I felt so good we swam first and then watched Michael Phelps get his 19th metal and then we went out to eat. We ate at a local pizza restaurant which was fun and I was craving their specialty salad and wrapped pizza dogs. I was able to eat and so far no nausea. So exciting for a change.
I even spent the day by myself and managed well. I kept the house closed until this evening so it would not be so hot. Watching all the swimming events with the Olympics is so thrilling to me. It has encouraged me to get up and moving. Speaking of moving, I am going to have a physical therapist next week to help me with my arthritis.
I am very optimistic with my cancer. My daughter told me the doctor she works for told her that many times my type of cancer is quick to respond to chemotherapy. “I plan on getting rid of my cancer…I am going to get rid of my cancer, I am going to get rid of my cancer”.
My daughter got my turmeric today. I realized I had spelled it incorrectly-sorry about that. It really helps with inflammation. Remember to get the one that is 95% potency. My headache also left today and that was a great relief. I still take iron everyday and am supposed to start extra shots to boost my iron levels this week. I know I will have more energy if I can get my hemoglobin in the normal range. If you feel weak, short of breath,fatigued and are pale, these are signs of anemia.
I got a lovely bouquet of yellow and white lilies, some smaller looking lilies that are orange, baby’s breath with green filler from a young lady who is like a daughter to me…just beautiful and uplifting!
On that note, Have a Blessed Day and enjoy all life can offer,
