FMBT & some cancer babbles

BWS tips button

Happy Tuesday =) 

I wish I could say I started my Tuesday off all nice & peachy but no can do :/

About 45 minutes ago I was puking my guts out in the bathroom. It was coming out like someone turned on a faucet FULL BLAST!!! Ugh!! I have NOT missed doing this daily AT ALL. Cancer can go suck a dick....

I started Cycle 8 this past Thursday. A few hours after I left the hospital I get a call from one of the nurses. I didn't get my phone in time so she left a message saying that I had left my Zofran in the exam room. At first I'm thinking WTH?? I haven't had Zofran since I was in the hospital for IL-2. Even then I never had a script for it, they gave it to me while I was admitted. I thought maybe I had misunderstood what drug she said because she did call it by it's generic name. I call back and I have to leave a message. I'm racking my brain trying to remember if I even opened my bag while I was in the room. I don't think I did. I even called my dad [he takes me to all my appointments] to see if he may have left a bottle there. He didn't. We continue playing phone tag for the rest of Thursday. Friday I forgot about it. Saturday I have a package in the mail from Karmanos. It's a bottle of Zofran w/ 4 pills in it! Seriously only 4? I figured I'd call on Monday to see why they were sending me drugs I haven't taken in nearly a year. 

I forgot to call. I've been feeling shitty this cycle. Lightheaded, nauseous, a headache that won't stop. I had 1 episode of diarrhea. That stopped after a dose of Imodium. Anywho Nick and I are sitting here watching Hardcore Pawn and out of the blue I get this feeling like I'm going to puke. Nick says "hey take a Zofran, you have them and you obviously could use it." I stand up to get it and take a drink of water and it hits me. I always get this weird feeling in my mouth right before I throw up. Like my mouth gets really wet. Like my saliva glands [?] have burst or something. I go running into the bathroom and well you know what happens next. I didn't even have a chance to take the pill. That was ok though because it would have came right back up. I took it after I was done and I felt a little better. 

I got an email from the organizer of a Melanoma walk that happens in my area with this years date. I'm so excited! I did it last year w/ hubs and the boys and a few of my cousins. It as a blast!! I had to be pushed in a wheelchair last year. It was only 3 months after my left leg/knee got all screwed up by a pain block shot. Man am I SOOOO thankful that I don't need the wheelchair, walker or cane anymore! I still can't run or walk very fast and my knee will sometimes give out on me but at least I can walk unassisted. 

Man a year ago I was so miserable and felt so helpless. I'm so glad I have such wonderful family & friends. My parents took the boys so I could rest. My aunt would cook us dinner and bring it over. Quite a few times I'd be unpacking it and Meijer gift cards would tumble out. The times that we got those we're always times when we needed it THE MOST. This was before I got approved for disability. I swear my aunt has a sixth sense or something. 

This is turning into a long post. I'll have to continue writing about the rest of out blessings from last year another time if anyone is interested. The whole point of my post was to link up to FMBT and bitch about puking!! But no matter how much I puke or how many times I blow up the damn bathroom like a guy at least the drugs are working and I'm here to do it!!!!

The Things We Find Inside

I can only imagine what you are going through. I had ovarian and uterine cancer 5 years ago, but a hysterectomy luckily cleared everything and I am healthy today. You are in my thoughts and prayers!

Kisma said...

I LOVE THIS POST... I am soo glad that I am not the only one who starts a blog with an actual point and then I just write, and write, and write. I am sooo sorry that you are having such a yucky time with this last cycle.

Zofron and I become best friends a few months ago when my wonderful mother in law brought the flu with her on our trip to CA for a wedding and shared it with me on the day we were to return home. My sister in law has some and gave me one for the flight home... LIFE SAVOR as I already don't fly well already.

I hope your week improves and you feel better.

Kelly said...

Heather said...

Although I am very behind in my bloggy comments, I have been thinking about you.

I hate to hear that this round has got you down. Literally. Yuck.

But I have to say that I admire your positive attitude. That's why you WILL kick cancer's ass.

Hello! New follower from Housewife eclectic here :)

I had a melanoma scare almost 3 yrs ago. I had a mole on my shoulder that had changed in size, color and shape. It was removed and tested. Lucky for me, it was benign.

You seem like a very strong woman and I LOVE your positive outlook. I know you can fight this horrible disease. Best of luck to you!

JoJo said...

Oh man I missed this post last week. I'm sorry you were so sick blah!! Take that zofran! I wish I can make it all go away, but honestly your attitude is such an inspiration. You would be my dream patient!
Thinking of you!!

Emily said...

Ohh I hate the mouth watering feeling... I am sorry you have been feeling so bad this cycle - I will keep you in my daily thoughts and prayers. Oh and congrats on your niece. Love the name!

Kelly said...

Crystal~ Thanks girl =)

Heather~ Thanks girl, I appreciate it!!

Noelle~ I'm glad yours was benign. I didn't have any spots on the outside of my body. It's internally by my left lung. My doctor said that I could have had a very small melanoma on my body and just never noticed and my boy could have fought it of. He said it's very rare but it can happen.

JoJo~ thanks hon!! You'd be my fave nurse of all time girl!! :)

Emily~ I know that feeling sucks!! Thanks for the prayers girl!! Oh and thanks for the congrats!
