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!!!!
