I think the chemo is affecting my brain already. I can barely remember all that has happened this week other than getting very annoyed that my port can be inserted until the 20th. That being said, I do recall having a cardio-pulmonary test on Wednesday afternoon in which I believe I showed normal results. I also know that I went to the gym yesterday for a work-out with my trainer because my legs and bottom are so sore I can barely get up from sitting or sit down from standing. I also recall that my 3.5 yr old had a major melt-down when I left for my appointment at 7:30am this morning. I think she's starting to notice how much I've been gone and that sometimes when I'm here, I'm not all that here (ie. so tired that I can only move like a slug). I feel terrible about it but I have to admit there is not that much that I can do for her. We went out for several hours together yesterday but apparently that's not enough for her. Sigh.
My appointment today went alright. S said my labs were superb but when I took a closer look at them I noticed how my white blood cell count, hemoglobins, and neutrophil were kinda low. I guess they'll just keep getting lower through this whole process. The whole thing is pretty interesting to me. Anyway S and I had a good talk, I only had a little cry, and in the end I was feeling pretty good about chemo #2 and the port insertion. I also got a few tips and prescriptions for managing my nausea and sleep issues. Hopefully some of this new information will make next week a bit easier. Heck, who knows, maybe I'll go out somewhere after all?!
