January 3rd, 2013- The past few days I’ve been experiencing insomnia and my nerves are getting a bit frayed. They believe it’s tied to the drug that I have to take two times a day, prednisone (a steroid for cancer treatment). I usually take my second dose around 9pm, but we are attempting to fix the situation by moving it earlier. Tonight I got my second dose at 6pm, around my dinner time. I hope moving it earlier works and they also prescribed me ambien as needed (it is much needed). I’ve also been feeling a bit BLAH today. I think it’s the chemotherapy wearing me down and also the lack of sleep, but I did get my mile walk in today!
Bryce’s daily visit helped me get through the day today since my nerves have been getting the better of me lately. His visits are the perfect medicine to help make this all better! I got to feed him a bottle today and he has some of the funniest quirks while he eats. He will grab hold of the bottle to help guide it in his mouth and then he will rub his head with his hands while eating. He is such a precious blessing!
Here are some pictures from today with Bryce.
