When you’ve been feeling absolutely awful, getting back to some semblance of normal is an amazing gift. Though getting to sleep took some work, i.e. had to get up to drink some coconut water because I was getting foot cramps, once I got to sleep, it was blissfully uninterrupted until Mr. Sun showed up a little after 5AM.
Today, there is just sporadic pain, and I’m so much in a better place, mentally. My plans for this evening: Watch Master Chef, then go to bed. Exciting, eh? :D But I need to catch up on my rest, and sleep is so good for what ails you. Now if it could only cure cancer. :P
Oh, and apparently, I am not the only person on earth that thinks Ned Stark (character from George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones) is a moron. If you haven’t read the books nor seen the HBO series, you won’t get these, but .. oh yeah, they are right on. Alas, there are only two more episodes for this book. They are not going to be very happy ones, either. Oh well.
Just got off the phone with my oncology nurse from Optum Health. It's a new one, Patty. I like her. We talked about how to manage the pain, and I'm going to talk to Dr. F about taking some Benadryl on the Thursday following my infusion, and see what he thinks about that. Man, I just don't want that damned pain killer nausea and vomiting again. :(
So, until next time, take care, sleep well, have happy dreams and be kind to someone random. :)
