Just Another Day

Just got back from town to get a blood test. This one is to keep track of the thickness of the blood since I'm on the blood thinner. They'll call me this afternoon and I'll adjust the pills I take, or I won't. Whichever. Since I'm still in a bit of a fog, my mother took me this morning. I was quite, which worried her, and although I don't feel really bad, I'm just sort of in that fog, there's no other way to describe it. The fatigue not so bad yet, nor the bone pain. Maybe I'll skip all that this time but I keep reminding myself it has only been four days since the treatment and sometimes these things come on later. But hey, I can hope they don't come.
And so, here I am back home, sitting in my recliner, with my computer. Every once in a while I get a jolt of energy and I think I can jump up and do a little house work, but I never get much done. SO back I sit. BUT hopefully not too much longer of this. I can't believe I only have one more treatment. And I am so grateful I've not had nearly as hard of a time with Chemo as I could have.
And that's about all there is with my boring life today. One day at a time. Sometimes one hour at a time. But I'm making it and that's what counts!

I'm glad it's just another day for you, nothing earth shattering, no specific aches or pain, just a little fog. If that's all there is then we will rejoice! Yahoo! Only one more to go....that is so awesome to think about. Keep on taking one day at a time, and soon it will be over.

I am glad you posted to let us know that you are okay. Blessings on your day tomorrow.

Thank you Marge, at this point, one day at a time for sure. I'm doing pretty well though, just weird feeling, which is a lot better than BAD feeling.
Thanks for sending me blessings. I'm getting them for sure.

...and when one hour at the time is too much, well then just a moment at the time. I tell my patients this all the time.

One more treatment! Yey!

Yeah for you! Sometimes it is in doing nothing that we actually accomplish something. You have accomplished something wonderful. You have refused to give in. Sending you blessings and prayers.

Thanks guys, and thanks Jenn for reminding me of nothing being something again, I lose sight of that sometimes, this being times like that. Feel so useless.
