I can certainly tell you that this week has been worse than I expected. Monday and Tuesday being the absolute worse whereby I did not even want to walk. Nausea, vomiting, fever and could not think or focus.
Wedesday and Thursday were about 50% better than Monday and Tuesday. I had periods of nausea and vomiting. I had sores breakout on my face and have been using lotion on these. Brock and I were discussing this gentlemen we saw at Chemotherapy, wearing this shirt that said "Chemo Brain". We now know what he meant. Your brain just does not want to work and you can't focus. Fortunately, I was on a Kelly Day at work today (day off) and did not have to call off. I am hopeful to be going to work on Monday. Pray for this!
Eating is a challenge. It feels like there is a coating inside of your entire mouth and you can't taste anything. Nothing taste good, not even ice cream. Sometimes just the thought of eating makes me sick. I learned yesterday the hard way that I need to eat 5 small meals instead of 3 large ones. I had breakfast and no lunch yesterday. By the time dinner came around I got sick before I could take one bite. However, a little while after eating I started to feel better. I have lost 4-5 lbs this week already (not trying).
I know many of you are praying for me! This is so important! Some of your are going to think I lost my mind, but one individual praying for me is Mike McClure (friend). I can actually feel him praying for me. I asked the Lord about this and he answered to me that he had heard Mike's prayers and that he was with me! If I was not already a believer in prayer, I AM NOW!
I continue to receive emails, txt messages, cards from Friends and Family! I have heard from friends that I have not spoken to in years! I have also created some new friends! I enjoy this! thank you so much!
