4th day after 1st chemo infusion and doing ok. Fighting nausea. Reached new levels of tiredness. Huffing and puffing to walk around our block is hard to accept. But, this weekend I managed to drive Sara to a Girl Scouts event, watch Sam play baseball (and get a game ball for outrunning a bigger kid to third base!), and walk to a family dinner at a friend’s house, where I ate chicken, fruit and a tiny bit of pizza crust – a feast!
Next up for this week: a visit to a wig shop with Sara, schedule a port (device to be surgically implanted into my chest, to avoid the multiple vein sticks before infusions), limited driving and a few short walks. And shopping for sun hats – I step outside and my face gets red and blotchy. My trusty, straw cowboy hat is cool on the beach, but ridiculous at Publix.
And, Saturday the 21st is my amazing husband’s birthday. Any kudos I get for being “brave” or ”positive” are because he’s here beside me.
Thank you all for checking in on us!
