I am finally up and able to get out of the house! What a round! I started to feel the effects of the chemotherapy on Saturday. The symptoms this round were easier by my tolerance to handle the symptoms is less. It is wearing me down. I was groggy and very tired. I napped most of Saturday and Sunday. On Monday I forced myself together with a shower and a much needed visit with a friend. After the visit I ate and was in bed for the evening. On Tuesday and Wednesday I was not feeling great. I spent those days in bed. Thursday finally came around and I was moving at a very slow pace. My mouth still tasted of steel. My head was still groggy. I dressed then napped, ate then napped. The heat was unbearable, I was hardly able to breath. Finally today I feel more like myself and I am able to get up and go! I went for an ice tea with a friend. When Paul came home we decided to invite my mom and go out for dinner while I felt like it.
