Day One After Chemo

Yesterday afternoon I threw a blanket under a shade tree and laid down. Then I just closed my eyes and just enjoyed what nature had to offer … a nice breeze, baby and momma birds chirping, leaves rustling, some dogs barking in the distance, wow this is what I needed. It was so nice our dog Daisy joined me and stood guard.

After about an hour or so, I made my way back inside … had some supper, some tv and off to bed at around 8:30. As D was tucking me in, I asked him to open the window just a crack so I could get some of that fresh air going past my face. Before you knew it, I was sleeping like a baby.

I woke up this morning with a headache; par for the course. So I grabbed the Tylenol and decided to quit being a martyr.

I’m a bit down on energy but feeling pretty good overall.

Oh, what a lovely idea! I may do the same. Out of the sun in the shade.

I love napping outside! Sounds like you really enjoyed it!

Hope you feel better soon. So great that you could relax a little and take in the beauty of the moment. That is something I need to work on. And do take what you need to help yourself feel better. I used to avoid any extra meds like crazy but soon came to realize I wasn't helping myself.
Thanks for sharing your journey with us. Deb

Laying out on the grass does sound really nice, I have my niece coming over this weekend so I am going to get a bag of jelly beans and do the same with her. We like naming the shapes in the clouds.
Hope you are feeling better Daria,
