I must make an apology. This post was supposed to show photos of me with and without the topping.
Well I got it. It’s the right colour, and the right style (midlength scruffy).
This is the start of the 5th week of chemo. Monday will be the mid-point.
I should have written this blog last night. But I went the whole day without a rest, so by 10pm I was shattered. So I went to bed for 30 minutes to get enough energy to write the blog and do a few other chores. I woke up at 7am. I think I’ll take a mid-afternoon break today.
Today has been humiliating. SheWhoMustBeObeyed sent photos of my bald head to the family. So far I have one response, from my grand-daughter the WolfGirl.
Apologies for posting late. There were two reasons:
- I was too tired last night.
- I wanted to see the effects of the dreadful thing that happened yesterday.
Woke up with no nausea, but very tired, so I ate breakfast (2 Saus + bacon is still bliss after nowt but porridge), then went back to bed. About 12:50 I decided that I really ought to get up, chemo or not, so I threw back the duvet and got a sharp pain on the LHS of the chest.
Still suffering side effects, but not as bad as last cycle. It’s not nice though. Even looking at food makes me nausaous. And I feel so tired.
Yesterday I said ” the only side effect is a metallic taste in my mouth”. I was hasty, today the side effects kicked in.
On 17 May I reported the start of my hair loss, today I had to manfully face up to the implications.
Chemo Infusion again. second of three. Last time I was shattered and very tired after 13 hours. This time took 10.5 hours and left me slightly headachy and just plain tired. I think I can live with that, and always remember you are allowed to be grumpy and bad-tempered.
