Chemo sucks! In this breast cancer blog post I talk about how chemo #3 is kicking my butt!
Breast Cancer Video Update of Chemo Number 3
So, I had chemo today. We got there at 8:15 am and were done at 12:30. The pre-drugs (Atavan and some anti-nausea thing) made me pretty drowsy and I slept most of the time while I was there. Morry was there for most of the time except when he and the kids went to get h1n1 vaccine shots. While they were doing that my mom sat with me.
I wasn’t that tired since I had slept through most of the chemo. I tried to take advantage of the quiet afternoon and got a few things done. Before I started feeling bad I wanted to get some more things done. My mom and I wrapped all of the presents. It feels good to have that done.
Living with Steelers Fans
The Steelers game is on now so Morry and the boys are upstairs in the game room watching TV. Morry had been watching the games downstairs, but he thought that TV was bad luck and decided to move back upstairs to the TV that won last year’s Super Bowl for the Steelers.
Well, the next few days probably won’t be so pleasant from me. I will continue to check email but probably won’t write back for a few days.
