I finally got to sleep around two o'clock and slept pretty good but woke at five thirty and have been up since. I popped the last of my magic pills. I feel a tiny bit nausea this morning and the nurse told me if I feel the least bit to take another kind of pill they gave me so I did that too. I had a bowl of cereal but no coffee yet.
Other than the tiny feeling of nausea I feel good.
I'll probably get a nap in soon since sleep was short.
I am just so grateful for the day I had yesterday, if I don't do so well today at least I was spared one day of not feeling icky.
One of the other side effects are mouth sores. I was deligent in keeping my mouth as clean as possible yesterday, and I hope I don't get those. But we'll deal with that when we have to if we have to. My mind spins at all they tell me and all I read and it is scary waiting to see what these powerful drugs are doing to your body.
Next weekend my mom and her family are having the family reunion here in our town. The different families take turns each year, and usually they are held in Florida. Our time comes around about every five or six times I think. I was thinking that would be around the time my hair would fall out, they say day 14 or 15, but it will be only the 11th day.
I usually wear my hair short anyway but it has grown out longer than I usually wear it and my mom and I have talked about her cutting it really short all over and that way if it does happen to start coming out during that time it wouldn't fall out in big hunks, in my food or something. If it looks too bad I can wear a baseball cap. And then when it does start we'll just buzz it.
Anyway, so far so good. My little bit of ickiness is feeling better already.
I hope each of you have a good day.
