Early morning Day +3

I was so tired yesterday I slept.   I slept a lot.  Then I couldn’t sleep all night.   Stupid me, I should’ve known better.  Will endeavor to not sleep as much today so I can sleep tonight.  Still recovering from the foley catheter too.  TMI ALERT:  I pee 10 times a night easily.  Plus you can add diarrhea to the mix making for an eventful night.  I’m not really tired yet this morning either, which is weird cuz I laid here in bed for 8 hours (minus getting up to pee and such).  I should be tired, but instead I am a little wired.  Gonna be a long day I am sure though.

Day +2 brought mouth sores to the party.   Got several in my mouth and the rinses they have me doing aren’t taking care of them.  Hopefully the doc I see today gives me something that can fight them, cuz it hurts to swallow, it hurts to breathe right now.

Alexa got confused this morning and went off at 6:20am.  Teresa was not happy.  She doesn’t want to be woke until 7:10am, big difference if you ask me.  Luckily for her she has the incredible ability to just fall back asleep.

Today promises more chemo.  A little 10 minute “Chemo bump” they call it.   Supposedly just enough to get the new stem cells fired up and working.   This is the chemo which caused the mouth sores.

Hair loss is to begin sometime this week.   I probably won’t lose it all like last time, but most of it.  I’ll be happy if I don’t lose my eyebrows and eyelashes.  Yes, I said happy.

I reserve the right to make a 2nd post today if things significantly change or something comes up that I feel there is a need to share.   Otherwise, I just wanted to whine for a  few minutes this morning.   I feel kinda rotten now.
