Well, I am officially back on chemo. I took the magic pill last night. I ate dinner about 7:00 p.m. and watch a little television and just sort of waited for my food to settle. I was tired and wanted to go to bed but I was staying up just to let my food to settle in that the instructions were to take it on an empty stomach. The doctor told me to take it at bed time and it was my bed time, so I took it with a compazine, which is an anti-nausea medicine and it sort of knocked me out but it wasn't bad. I woke up a couple of times need to go to the bath room and was groggy but I made to to and from okay. No nausea. I kept waking this morning but I just didn't want to get up. Still groggy. About 10, I got up and ....wow, I didn't feel all that bad other than sort of lethargic which is one of the things all chemo's do. All in all, I was pleased. I had my coffee, walked out in the rain and got the papers, read the news in bed with Mr. Kitty, and just felt like any other morning other than I was a shade groggy. You know, sort of like a drug hangover. Have you ever taken too much pain medicine or sleep medicine and go to bed and wake up sort of dizzy and well, no that you took too much medicine? That's what it felt like. No headache but some aching in the back and neck.
I had breakfast at 1:00 and watch the Razorbacks lose to Tenn.....boo....but felt not to bad. I don't feel like running around right now but all in all, not bad. Now we just have to see how the next pill works. I'm waiting till Monday to take it and kind of go from there. All of it is based on how I can handle it. If I could get to where I could take one of these chemo pills everyday, I would be happy. Don't know if I can get there but that's my goal.
I'll write more later. Okay?
God bless and have fun,
