Chemo Three Done and Dusted
September 25, 2012 § Leave a comment
Had chemo dose number three yesterday – but it was such a big day (over six and a half hours) that I was totally exhausted after it. Not sure exactly why it took so long yesterday – nothing different in terms of the the treatment just slower going through the veins. I got this weird rash on my hands and torso over the weekend but after talking to the nurses about it, seems to be some mild non-related allergy. So the advice – just keep an eye on it. Which is I guess, all I can really do. It has cleared up in the meantime, although left me with tiny scabby little sore things – also on the mend. Other than that, things are going pretty well for me. I consider myself very lucky.
Like Sus I am also looking after my diet, but nothing too special for me – more just making sure I am eating and eating good, fresh healthy foods. I’m not a great lover of cooking so easy meals are also big on the agenda for me – lots of fresh fruit and veg, protein etc. Have to say though, that I always enjoy anything better when someone else cooks !!!!!! I reckon I might pop over to Sus’s for meal – her’s sound way more interesting. Sus – you go girl – next thing we know you will be starting a food blog !!
BTW – had to get more things for the head last week. the hats are great but with some nice spring weather, I have decided I need to extend my range to some lighter head covers. Needless to say, chemo hats are becoming my next big accessory!!!
