Wendell and I both had problems sleeping last night, insomnia had set in!!! He left for work at 4:00 am and so I just got up and tried to catch up on laundry and book work. I suddenly became ill, and had some vomiting. It came on suddenly and was a little shocking, I have been nauseous but have not actually threw up. Once it was over I felt some better and was able to lay back down and fall asleep around 7 am for a couple hours.
True to my thinking, my work day was cut in half!!! Pam came and cut my hair extremely short last night. It's about 1/2 inch long. I had her leave my bangs, in the hopes of hanging on to them as long as possible, (I don't look quite as bald with bangs coming out from under my hats!!!) My hair is thick and is falling out all over, not just in spots, so my head is actually still pretty much covered with hair right now. I wore a black turban to treatment today, I actually thought it looked ok. It was kind of nice, not to have to worry about my hair, when I wasn't feeling well. I was actually asked by another patient where I got my hat!!! Imagine me, Bald and stylin!!!! I'll just let you imagine for awhile before I post pictures of the reality!!!!
I got sick on the way to treatment today and had to have Wendell pull over:( They did my radiation but when I went for the Chemo they had the Doctor come look at the blisters in my mouth, and decided not to do the chemo today. They explained that the chemo intensifies the radiation, the sores, if my blood count goes low because of the chemo, can turn into a hard to fight infection. So it is best to take this week off from chemo. I am off next week anyway because it will be week four. We will resume the chemo the next week. I will not make up the times I miss.
All I was able to eat yesterday was some bean juice, from my Mother In Law, late last night. Today I lost the soup broth I had ate for breakfast, on the way to treatments! After treatment Wendell took me to McCalister's Deli to check out their soup menu, I purchased Cheesy Potato Soup there. I'm not a normally big cheese fan (even though the taste buds are pretty much gone), so he also took me to Panera Bread where I purchased Baked Potato Soup. After coming home and doing some mouth wash regimes, I was actually able to eat one of the soups for dinner and one for a late night snack!!! It feels good to have something in the stomach. Never thought I would have that problem!!!! If you know of any places to buy good creamy soups I'm all ears!!!
Looks like me and potato's are becoming "best spud's" again, hee hee!!!!
