Today is day 7, cycle 2, and I’m still very weak, tired, and having something they call DOCIN – delayed onset chemotherapy induced nausea.
I know they warned me that the side-effect free holiday that I had after round one wouldn’t happen as fast and for as long each subsequent treatment, but I guess I didn’t believe them. If I’m trusting the oncologists to cure my cancer, I suppose I should trust them that they know what they’re talking about in terms of the rest of the issues…
I’m headed back to the sofa for a few minutes, until it’s time to take five children to the pediatrician to get flu shots. I hope the waiting room isn’t germy and that my kids are perfectly behaved. Wish me luck!
Oh, PS – we’re all set for Thanksgiving, lunch and supper (thanks to some wonderful friends) are in the fridge, we’re just going to have a quiet day ad think about all the things we’re grateful for. Tomorrow I’ll try to post a photo of the shopping list Danny made for our feast 🙂
