Y'all, I have been doing laundry all the livelong day. I got up this morning when my alarm went off at 6:00am. I slowly trudged into the bathroom and started getting ready. I had been standing in front of the mirror no more than 5 minutes when my stomach started doing somersaults and I broke out into a cold sweat. I thought, "Man, I don't think I'm going to make it through school today." I managed to get to the computer to hire a sub for my class before collapsing back into bed.
Brian went to the pharmacy for me as soon as they opened to get my anti-nausea prescription. Luckily, it seemed to work on the old tummy. That chemo does a number on the body! And, the side effects are incredibly unpredictable. One minute, I'm feeling fine, normal even. Then, before I know it, I'm doubled over in pain or just totally wiped out, with no warning. It stinks!
Alas, life must go on and will go on, and until then, I'll be doing laundry. That's the one thing that persists - chemo or not!
