Well, I would be lying if I said this round was a walk in the park! However, I still consider myself lucky with the side effects. This past week head aches and fatigue seemed to get the best of me. Thank goodness for Tylenol...( I could do a commercial :)
Bob & I walked every morning this past week but the afternoons and evenings had me flat on my back. Mornings are great for walks on week 1 because I am jacked up on steriods and it feels like the energy is overflowing! But that is where these darn drugs play mind and body games! Fatique sets in like no other!After an hour (sometimes more) of napping I would be fine for another hour or so before the head ache came back. It is a bit frustrating sometimes...I think I should be able to do "something" and it takes a bit too much effort. I did manage to make suchi and fresh rolls on Saturday although I forgot some ingredients (not that anyone noticed - hahaha)! Yes, I know....it's not about cooking for others.....it's time for me to do my job, take my medical lumps and get better....hahahah! That is SOOOO much easier said than done!! I am working on it! The way I look at it is, if I feel good enough to cook, bake, or whatever - then do it! This stuff isn't getting easier so there will be times where Bob and the kids will just have to "do"....ok, there are already times like this if truth be told.
On another note, the garden is growing! Fresh spinach, lettuce and onions are on the way.....and hopefully a few carrots to boot!!
Today ends week 1 of round 3 - I am thankful that I feel like I have turned another chemo corner to recovery!
Lots of love, Shelley
