Resting Up…

vintage-1501595_1280.png

I’m afraid I might have been a little cocky with that Saturday post.  Just a quick note to tell you things are okay, chemo and even more so the Neulasta injection they gave me the day after chemo to fight infection, are literally kicking my butt.  Symptoms started Sunday, better today, but what they refer to as “bone pain” was incredibly painful which meant I had to take pain meds again, which make me sleepy and constipated.  And I had to take the anti-nausea pills a couple of times.

Current side effects are fatigue, joint pain and just generally not feeling well.  Hoping I’ll be writing again soon…

  18. I adore your portrait. I’m going to share it with my friend who danced her way through a double mastectomy and has led our dance group ever since — besides writing and performing in a number of plays, and numerous other activities. She lives every minute to the hilt. She will love the image and all it implies. Get well at your own pace: I reckon the world needs you.

    but had pre-planned posts for these days. Just barely got through the week to tell you I was there in spirit. Wishing this lovely photo and story were more of what you feel now but I read the posts in reverse order. So sorry you have had setbacks and yet:
    Thank goodness you are going to get through this with no cancer. So glad they did reconstruction and is completed. ❤

        Personal update: So far, plans for a zoo trip with my two grandsons and Calisto’s two sons are in the “works.” Also, thanks to my oldest daughter getting reduced tickets and giving them to us, a day spent sometime before October 23rd at the Renaissance festival, just the 2 of us. I am making progress, although his ex-wife has asked him to spend extra weekends with his boys and I didnt want to intrude. He jumped at my future idea of the zoo, which made me smile.
        Take it easy, hope you are allowed bon-bon’s or some such treat, Dee. 🙂
