It's been tough. I finished the first round of Chemo a week ago, and day 6 and 7 were beyond tough. Let's just say I didn't eat, but was running to the bathroom with the runs and to vomit... At the same time. I've had days where I slept all day.
Right now is my toughest challenge, I am currently experiencing a full body rash from the chemo and a reaction to Vancomycin. The old Lamaze breathing techniques have been helpful. Today was the absolute worst, and I would but the itching and burning at a 10 on the pain scale. If you want to pray specifically, please pray this rash resolves soon as Benadryl and Hydrocortosone barely touch it. I can't take much more of this torture.
I started slowly losing hair yesterday in big clumps. After washing my hair today, and then brushing it out, I had a hair ball about 15 inches wide! My Mom is staying with me right now, and we decided to cut it all off tomorrow. Mom is going to the wig shop first to buy me some scarves and a night cap cause I hear it can get cold at night when you are bald.
Once everything resolves, I can go home until my second round of Chemo in January. I'm still positive I'll beat this, and I like to think that next round, I'll know more what to expect, so we can combat things sooner!
Thanks for the prayers, and please keep them coming.
