|Good stuff: more energy, my taste for boiled crawfish has not changed (many tests conducted in this area!), more walking, less weakness, less nausea ( if I time the meds and food just right), and hair beginning to grow in causing me to have some fluff on my head! Yay!! Oh yeah, and my chemo brain has cleared up and I have deep thoughts all the time. 🙂
Not-so-good stuff: hot flashes day and nite then followed by chills ( I am back on hrt for that but only for 5 days so far) This causes lack of sleep and nite sweats. Still some weakness when I first stand up. Wearing masks when I go to the store or Dr’s office. Ears are stopped up but that may just be allergies to the live oak pollen falling. Taste buds are still unpredictable, don’t like meat that much but my grapefruit phase has passed finally! (seems to have been replaced by cabbage eating now. Huh?)
Now this Not-so-good list seems longer but but not really. I’m major excited over the Good stuff, and I thank God daily for that. I feel more and more like me and not so much the patient.
I want to thank everyone for their prayers and patience through my ” bump in the road” time. My mom, the caregiver, was once again The Rock!
It’s all good!
