A Tough Few Days

image

Today is the first day since Wednesday that I have felt somewhat normal. My energy levels are increasing and my appetite is slowly coming back. I had no idea what chemo was going to be like when I had started it, but it has not been fun! For the first three days all I did was stay in bed. I would get up for maybe a half hour at a time and then head right back to bed. I think my eyes were closed for nearly three days as I kept them closed so I could focus on not being sick. My sense of smell has radically changed and so now I have to be carful or certain smells will affect me. Each day I have tried to push myself by trying to do a little more and staying up. I have been successful with eating plain soup and toast, along with my juices. Jamie made a yummy turkey dinner in Friday evening and I did a pretty good job eating. Yesterday and today have been better. I have been able to eat more and I even did a little work today. I hope in the next few days I will be back to normal, just in time to do it all over again. I am so grateful for my loving, supportive, wife. She has been amazing. Also, I am fortunate to have a very committed family and group of friends walking this out with us. I am off of treatments this week and will resume on Wednesday, October 7. Keep praying! Thanks!
