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!
You are a inspiration to us all😍 Kick ass!
Three little cuties all cuddled up. Love you all. Peaceful rest is my prayer for you tonight.
Love you, Katie! You CAN do hard things.
Thinking of you so much. Will continue. Love you & your family.
Thinking of you and your family!
