A rough Day

I went to get my 3rd Chemo Friday. It didn't go as well as the other two. They couldn't get a blood draw out of my port. Goodness, did it hurt this time going in. They spent a bit of time trying to get it right. OUCH, OUCH and OUCh. By the time they were done messing around with the I.V. my poor daughter-in-law didn't feel so good. Her face was as white as a sheet. They never did get the blood they were suppose to but they gave the Chemo anyway. I don't know if it was just everything together but I didn't go so well. By the time I left the hospital I felt really sick. I was sick to my stomach and started to get a really bad headache. Needless to say, I was in bed most of the day.

Saturday morning I still woke up with a bad headache but after taking Advance action Advil in a few hours I felt a lot better.

Sunday was o.k. I did my Ann Arbor News job and Lead Worship at our church. Plus, we had Jimmy and John's 14th Birthday party. All in all I had a good day. I was able to eat a small portion of Green bean Cass. and Cheesy Potatoes.

One thing I failed to mention is making sure that during Chemo you keep a lot of moisture on area that can become cracked and dry. Was was so worried about my hands that I didn't think about my feet. When I came home Thursday from work I had blisters on the back of my feet from them getting dried out. My husband had to pop them, I worked all weekend to get them back in shape so I could wear my Tennis shoes again.
