Well...the last few days were certainly full of adventure. As Aunt Kathy mentioned, Kiki and Dylan over the last week have both had this 36 hour stomach flu. Soon after Deron and I got home from chemo on Wednesday night, Deron started getting very sick. I immediately called my mom and asked her to get to my house. There was no way I was going to be able to take care of Deron and Deron could not take care of me. We were quite the pair that night. Deron started shaking so bad, the covers were moving. You would have thought that our house was a freezer box. My mom took the kids and I to her house so we hopefully wouldn't get the bug. Poor Deron was left at home alone with phone calls every hour to check on him. The next day was the worst for me. From the time I woke up I was so nauseous. I couldn't eat...couldn't drink...had more fluid coming out my rear end and was dry heaving. I was so weak that by the afternoon, I could barely walk. I had to go back to my doctors office for a white blood booster shot. When they saw me they took me back to the chemo room and hooked me up to a bag of fluids. By that evening, I was able to eat a few crackers and a few bites of soup but that was it. Yesterday, Friday, was much better. Still weak, I was able to drink a bit and eat a bit. I still had to go to the Dr. office and get another bag of fluids. I was actually able to drink and eat by last night. Deron was feeling so much better as well. Today, Saturday, I feel like I've got so much more energy. I've eaten cereal, drank a bottle of water and I just might get out of bed soon. lol
Hopefully my next chemo will be only chemo...not chemo with flu cocktail. Also, my chemo treatments are going to be every 3 weeks...not every other week. I'll have more recovery time in between treatments. I'll even be off for when my family all goes to Mission Beach in July. I can't wait.
I hope everyone is doing well.
