Chemo Today

My day started at 3:30 am due to the steroids. I did some blogging and some ironing and before I knew it, it was time to go for chemo at 9:00 am. I just got back as it took a good four hours. The previous two times, I was out in three hours ... it can vary ... likely due to how busy they are. I decided not to take the DVD player and a movie but instead I worked on math problems for my course.

Chemo itself went well with nothing really to report. I feel pretty good and will feel better when I take the two steroids at 5:00 pm. That should easily get me through my 3 hour course tonight.

Tonight's sleep will definitely be a struggle ... but there is always more ironing and blogging of course or should I say blogging with a possibility of ironing. Yes that is more like it.

I am full of awe that you can study, iron, blog and goodness knows what else, all on chemo day! I used to just veg out on that day and wrap myself in cotton wool. If you don't get top marks on that course of yours something is very wrong ! Hope you sleep well and catch up. 3 AM ! Perhaps you're like Maggie Thatcher (an old Prime Minister of ours) who reputedly only needed 3 or 4 hours sleep a night ! Pleasant dreams and healing cycles. (Just think of all those cancer cells dead and dying right now ! )
