sucked. plain and simple.
AC is the big bad bitch everyone claimed it would be. I am so thankful to have only one more of these infusions, but dreading next Tuesday for sure. It’s a whole new mind game to psych yourself up for these. Acupuncture the day before is saving me.
I ended up back in the ER a week ago Sunday with an eye infection. Blepharitis–which is the nasty older sister to Pink Eye. For most folk, NBD but for cancer patients antibiotics for all! Oh joy. Good thing is my counts were OK so they let me go with oral instead of IV. One of the crappiest parts of this whole thing is that you have to be a hypochondriac. If you sneeze the wrong way, the oncologist wants you to call and tell them. Unfortunately, as life works it always seems that you get sick or something happens after hours. Which leaves them only one place to send you….the ER. A cancer patients worst nightmare. I mean, can you think of a germmier place?? Any investors out there looking for your next business venture……a beautiful comfy 24 hour triage center for cancer patients. No germs, no ER drama, just sweet doctors and nurses giving you the care you need without exposing you to the swine flu.
As life works, as soon as Mama gets better baby bird goes down. Last week was Hollis’ first week of school full time. He joined our bigs at their school and we are SO thrilled. But with new schools comes new germs. Not the best timing for my week of quarantine, but we’re making it work. Dousing myself in sanitizer by the minute.
A special thank you to everyone who has sent me gifts, treats, care packages, cards, flowers, warm cookies and ice cream!, beautiful scarves, and so much more. You really, really know how to put a smile on my face and I feel SO loved and supported. THANK YOU!
