Not So Tired Anymore

I’ve been recovering nicely from last week’s trip to Ottawa; I’m not so tired anymore. Yesterday was the first day I didn’t have an afternoon nap. Tho I have been working hard on trying to make sure I get a solid night’s sleep. One of the tricks I use to help ensure I sleep well through the night is a pair of ear plugs. They take a bit of getting used to but boy-o-boy do they work. For me they muffle out the sounds that tend to wake me up.

Also, I’m still taking one Benadyl at bedtime so I don’t wheeze and cough when I lay down to sleep. It helps me breathe easier and therefore I sleep more solidly. 

I think I still need a bit more R & R so I’m going to stay close to home for the remainder of the week. I have a big day at the cancer clinic on Friday … appointments scheduled from nine in the morning till three in the afternoon. All these tests are in anticipation of starting my new study drug.

Staying close to home for a few days sounds like a good plan.

I also have ear plugs. John snores terribly!

I will be in the chemo room on Friday. Perhaps we will run into each other at some point!
Get lots of rest!

I'm pleased you're getting over the exertions of your trip to Ottawa; sounded like it was quite worthwhile!

What a busy lady you are! I had no idea as I haven't been back to visit for a few weeks. You are a great inspiration and I hope the study goes well!
