Readers! I know I have been away for a bit. Last week was spent in the hospital for Cycle 4. They didn’t kick me out! The chemo went on fine but I did have a few issues. I threw up on Wednesday or Thursday (I can’t remember). I had also thrown up the morning before I checked in. I think that messed up my nerves/ribs/something because all hell broke loose on Thursday evening. My back and under my ribs were on fire. I was put on oxygen because I had problems breathing. They took an EKG to check my heart. They did a CT scan to check lungs. Everything came back fine. I asked for lots of pain killers and got some. Finally after one sleeping pill didn’t work they got a stronger one and it knocked me out. The pain lessened but was still worse than it was before I went into the hospital. It flared up again on Monday afternoon. Wasn’t as bad but still bad.
Thankfully the last two days have been good. Hopefully whatever got messed up or moved around has settled back in place and I can enjoy starting to feel better. I won’t go back into the hospital till the 6th of January. I am looking forward to steering clear of that place! Here are some pictures from the past week and a half. Please note, not all were taken by me. My friend Jennifer P. provided me with some.
Shout out to my lovely friends who bought me a Christmas bracelet and a WONDERFUL wine sippy cup! Perfect!
