So I actually wrote that last post on Monday the 10th, which is why everything sounds so positive. I have had a terrible week. I started getting sick on Tuesday afternoon before going in for my Neulasta. That night I decided to try some phenergan for nausea. I also took an Ativan to help me sleep (the steroids I am taking make sleeping difficult). The next day I couldn't wake up and ended up sleeping the entire day. My memory was horrible and I couldn't focus on anything. I was also having numbness in my hands and feet. Then to top everything off I got bronchitis. This lasted through Friday night and now I am finally feeling normal today. I called my Drs office numerous times during this period and I'm sure they think I'm psycho! They have a really great nurse practitioner named Shirley that talked me down from the cliff a couple of times.
Jacob turned 9 on Friday! I asked him where he wanted to go for his party and he said the nightmare on 13th. Yeah right! He ended up inviting some friends to go Thanksgiving Point for the corn maze, which is a much more appropriate activity for 8 and 9 year old boys. I wasn't feeling well, so Paul, my mother-in-law Suzanne, and sister in law Traci went.
I am so thankful to my family and friends who have been so supportive. Especially to Pauls mother who has been spending the week with me after I have chemo. I don't know what I would do without her.
