January 8th, 2013- I actually got a decent bit of sleep last night…bald of course! It actually feels quite nice not having to bother with my hair being in my face while sleeping. I took another ativan before bed last night again and it helped settle my stomach and relax me. I just finished both of my chemotherapy treatments and I am feeling a little run down. My stomach still has been upset for most of the day. The doctors all say it’s a common side effect of the treatments. I do have my good days with it, but today was not one of them. I hope tomorrow brings a better day, but I am due for my LP (spinal tap) and I don’t want a repeat of the last one. The nurses and doctors are all on high alert, and they promise to drug me up pretty well before and after the procedure. I have many more in the coming months and years, so I hope the first one was just an anomaly. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers especially for tomorrow!!
Bryce came by with Grampy today a little bit earlier since I had my first chemotherapy treatment around noon. We turned on the radio again for more dancing and smiles. He is such a hoot when he dances! He still makes his silly throat clearing noise just like his Daddy’s bad habit. Today seemed to have gone by too quickly when he was here. I miss him to the moon and back and I cannot wait to see him tomorrow!
Thank you everyone for your supportive words about my new haircut!!
