Sleep Is Good

Last night I laid down right after supper and slept for almost three hours which left the night sleep a bit choppier but still worth it. This morning I laid down at about 10:00 am and slept for a couple more hours. I'm telling you that feels good.

The side effects of chemo and steroids are leaving me feeling yukky to say the least so posting will be brief. My focus will be on more sleep as required and keeping warm. I'm started to get the chills I normally get around this time of the cycle. Layers of fleece help with that.

One more thing I wanted to say ... I read a lot of cancer blogs and I know that others are going through similar and/or worse treatments than I am ... just wanted to say ... I'm thinking of you and wishing you all the best.

You are right - sleep is very good and makes the time pass quicker. Hope you feel good again soon.

Yes, sleep is good. After my chemo, I would sleep most of that day and the next, bundled up in layers of clothes and blankest, so I can totally relate! Enjoy your naps!

Sleep is great! I have 3 hour naps as well, and I am not presently on chemo! I make no apologies ;)

Stay warm. Have a good weekend. And eat your veggies!

That's the worst thing in a way, the constant fatigue. Mum would kill for enough energy to clean out the fridge...

Daria it is a hard road. Just put one foot in front of the other. Keep breathing.

I slept a lot on taxotere.

I am thinking of you sweet friend. It never leaves us and it is a very bitter pill to swallow.

Love Renee xoxo
