So it's Saturday, chemo was 2 days ago. The "yuckies" have hit full force. It started with a headache last night, then the nausea came this morning. I've been lying around all day, sleeping on and off. The plan was to go up to NC with John this weekend. The girls are going to kids camp at his club starting on Monday. He left early this morning and we were going to drive up later. Ain't happening!
The girls have been great today and thankfully, my sister came over to feed them lunch and check in. After several medications, I started feeling a little better this afternoon. John suggested meeting in Gainesville to hand over the girls. Jan was going to drive them, but I was feeling better and wanted to see them off. The kids camp is something we do every year and this year they are adding more activities - whitewater rafting, horseback riding. I was really looking forward to going up and spending the week like I normally do. But with my radiation treatments every day, I'm stuck here at home. Cancer stinks!
So anyway, I just got back home and I'm exhausted! Going to take another nap, I think. I will say this, we met John at the McDonald's in Oakwood and while we were waiting on him, I got the girls something to eat. I remember last time I had chemo, the only thing that tasted really good and offset the nausea was french fries, so I ordered some - mmmmmm, they're still good! I know I've been trying to eat healthier since reading all this research on cancer and diet. But sometimes, if junk food can make things better for just a little while, I'm all for it!
I sure do hope tomorrow is better!
