Well- Here I am on day 4 post round one of chemo. Day 1 was fine- I felt mostly normal. Day 2 was rough- and day 3 was rough but better than day 2. And here I am day 4 and I am able to type on the computer….progress!
Justin asked me what it felt like- on days 2 & 3. I am not sure I can describe it fully- but it’s like the worse fatigue you’ve ever felt…talking and texting and even reading a text message…was challenging. The brain fog was hard….my thinking was really cloudy (still is- but huge improvement) and my thoughts were jumbled.
I spent most of those days sleeping.
I also could NOT get comfortable. And sleep at night was difficult- but thankfully last night I slept decently.
Writing this post actually takes up a lot of brain energy…it’s a weird type of fatigue that again- is hard to explain. It’s like my fingers don’t e=remember 100% where to go on the computer (and phone!) so I have to work a little harder to type my thoughts.
I am taking all my meds so that I don’t feel “sick” and I am eating and drinking- though drinking in days 2 & 3 was difficult. Thankfully I had done really well with fluids the days before…I will be sure to keep that up for the next round.
I think that is about all I have for now! We are watching a movie as a family now- then I hope to maybe eat food other than last for dinner…MMmmmm.
As always- thanks to you all for the messages, texts, thoughts and prayers! We appreciate you all so much!
