This past week has been busy. Last Sunday, as I posted, I did the Orchid show. Monday I had lab work to see if I was healthy enough to do chemo. Tuesday I went in for chemo. We were to start an additional chemo, but it didn't happen. My liver enzymes were too high, so I only did one chemo. Erik is now coming every other Wednesday to help us. So I did laundry, down the 26 steps and across the parking lot. And Friday night a friend took us out to eat in San Francisco. I don't usually do things at night because I poop out about supper time. I did pretty good and wasn't too tired when we got home.
I have been lucky with side effects, mostly. I have the fatigue they warned me about. It isn't awful. I can do most things I need or want to do.. I do have a problem, itching from head to toe. I would wake up clawing my skin.. The doctor suggested Benadryl to control the itching. It helped but did not last until the next dose. So I am now on a prescription drug that is working.
All things considered I am doing well. As long as I rest each day I can pretty much do what I want.
