Done in by the weekend :)

13 Jul

The Orange County Fair gig was a success. I had a great time. But, I am really paying for it today. Pretty weak today.

Now it is all about gearing up for my next chemo round – this Thursday. I have to arrange for my caretakers (I am working on that now), get all of the medications picked up and lined up, shop for my chemo food (I have a different diet that I follow for the week after chemo), keep track of my water intake – down to the ounce (I was told to drink 2 – 4 liters of water per day several days before chemo and for the week after chemo. So, I make sure that I drink 4 liters of water each day now).

My last chemo hit earlier and lasted longer. So I am planning for a longer coverage this time, just to be safe. Normally I have someone here 24/7 from Friday evening through Monday am. But, this time I am planning on having someone here  from Thursday through Tuesday. There are shifts that my friends and family take. It is both weird and wonderful. Weird to have to rely on so many people so much and wonderful to have so many people that I can rely on. 

Still, hopefully this round will be no worse than last. Actually, I am hoping, that maybe it won’t be as bad as the last round. Okay, I am planning on it not being as bad as the last one. But, just in case, I will have people here to take care of me.

I can’t believe this Thursday is my last chemo. Wow, time flies when you’re feeling under the weather 🙂 It did fly by though. Really.

The heat was not much help last time. I don’t know what it is about the heat, but when it is warm I can get pretty upside down pretty fast. That was definitely an issue with my last chemo. So I will be laying next to my air conditioner this weekend.

Well, I am pretty beat. Moving very slowly today. I have a kind of vertigo going on. It is from the lower red blood cell count I guess. And, it is keeping me horizontal for the rest of the day. So, I am forced into getting some rest 🙂 I guess that is a good thing.
