So I am on day 3 post chemo #2. Last time, days 2 & 3 were the hard days- where I had the worst fatigue and brain fog. This time has been different. For one- I don’t have the brain fog like last time- which is nice! I also am not as tired and I actually have an appetite- unlike last time where I had to eat toast for 3 days.
Yesterday- day 2- I felt pretty normal except some mild fatigue and mild nausea (yay for meds!) and I did end up taking a nap and going to bed early. However I ate normally (even more than usual) and was able to do a few things around the house.
Today I definitely feel more tired than yesterday but overall I am pretty impressed in how my body is handling it. I think some of it has to do with how much fluids I’ve been downing both before, during and after chemo to help flush out the extra meds. Also the fact that I got a lot less meds the second time around (because of those loaded doses I mentioned before) I think helped a lot.
So I’ve taken today pretty easy and just enjoyed the view and the RAIN that we got earlier.
My hair though….it’s REALLY thinning out. The sides especially are going fast. Pretty soon I’ll be totally bald. My showers keep getting shorter and shorter, lol!
That’s about it for today. Happy Sunday! Only a couple days in 2019. Looking forward to a new year and a new decade!
