Okay I’m just going to rant for a bit because I’m in pain and frustrated.Continue reading “Pancreatitis Rant”
I haven’t written a new blog post lately because it’s been a rough week. I’ve been so worn out and I didn’t even know it was possible to feel this kind of fatigue.Continue reading “Fatigue”
As the title suggests the last few days have felt quite long and I have not had the mental stamina to keep up with sharing with all of you.Continue reading “It’s been a long couple days”
This morning started off just as crummy as the last two. Still had issues with with my blood pressure being too low but this evening that all seems a world away this evening.Continue reading “Little Victories!”
Sorry for my silence the last day or so. The lows are finally starting to hit and I’ve had a rough day. Some of my meds can make you have to go while others make it harder to go to the restroom. They try to manage with laxatives but it is a balancing act.
This morning the I was finally able to go but not without a lot of pain (I apologize for the TMI but there’s no better way to explain what’s going on) losing all the fluid has messed with my body. They have been giving me fluids all day long to try and get my blood pressure back up but I can’t really stand more than a minute without feeling faint.
So today begins some of the downward trend of good days as my body gets hit by the chemo. I’ve basically been resting in bed all day. It took a while but I was finally able to eat a little toast and Jam and feel more comfortable in bed. The only way to describe it is 100% pure exhaustion. I can barely keep my eyes open even while typing this.
Please bare with me as I navigate these more difficult days. They say that this next week will be one of the harder ones as my counts continue to drop.
Well that’s all for now as typing isn’t the easiest when you keep falling asleep. It’s even hard to stay awake for Kevin Bacon in footloose! One of the greatest movies ever.
I haven’t posted today’s update yet because it’s a chemo day and I figured I’d wait until later. I’ll get started though because I’m bored and killing timeContinue reading “Chemo Day”
I have definitely begun to start feeling some of the effects of my treatment so that is making my daily posts a bit more difficult.Continue reading “Keeping Up”
Today has been odd. I woke up feeling pretty good aside from being a bit dehydrated. No headache, no pain, just a bit tired. Breakfast was quite yummy and afterwards I did some walking in the hall for about a km.Continue reading “Odd Day”
So far this process has been a lot of sitting around and waiting for answers, running tests, and keeping me comfortable. With not much moving forward it is definitely easy to fall into denial.Continue reading “Baby Steps Forward”
So today was yet another day of just kind of sitting around doing nothing. They are still waiting on the results of my philidelphia chromosome test results in order to determine the exact course of treatment. Until then they can’t start me on any regimen.Continue reading “Another Uneventful Day”
