I have been pretty lucky so far this time with my double chemotherapy dose. I have had a slight headache, but no pain at this time. I know that one of the main reasons is I get an IV of steroids prior to each dose which usually makes me feel pretty good for about 48 hours.
I have been very good about drinking a lot of juice and water today as my nurse told me to drink ten to twelve glasses of non-caffeinated beverages a day. I was given an Iron shot yesterday and was concerned about getting constipated. I am doing good in that department as well today.
I continue to tell myself, ” my cancer will to away, my cancer will go away, my cancer will go away”. My hair is still thinning a lot every time I brush or comb it. Just taking each thing one day at a time.
We had a very nice social worker here who spoke with my daughter about things to help financially. Family members can be paid to care for spouses and parents depending on if you “qualify” for certain “in home care programs”. These vary depending on where you live in the United States. She is going to get us some information.
I enjoyed another day of the Olympics.
Keep smiling as much as you can,
