Week 2 – I need a Silent Night.

 I am so much better! I feel better. I can eat. I can put on clothes and do a few things around the house, life is good. If I had to complain it’s sleeping. Now, if you know me, you know, this girl can saw some zzzzz’s. Not anymore. First, heartburn starts when I lay down, that leads to unmentionables, and I’m back sitting up in a chair for a while. Which leads me to our other phenomenon. I take so much medication, I had to get an app to keep it all straight! One pill 4 times a day, one pill 3 times a day, two pills in the morning, it’s exhausting!! I was getting sick of one pill which lead to an anti-nausea pill, which then lead to a stomach coating meds to prevent ulcers. Publix now calls Curt like CHEERS used to say Norm! It’s tipping on crazy.
Want to hear another insanity? Went to Dr. Bruce on Monday and we told him how much better I was feeling. Yes! He said, that’s when your white blood count is lower, so the better you feel, the more have be cautious about going out in public. So, while I was bedridden, sick and icky, I could go out! But get better and you are stuck in the house. Is this typical cancer for me? I think so!  

But, if this is the way my 3 week cycle will go, I’m ready! I did realize that once holidays are over, and it’s just Curt and I, I’m going to need help. Not just with meals, but errands, or sitting with me while I’m pondering life the 4-5 days after chemo. So, if you are out and about in Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, please text me. If I need something, I’ll certain say so.  

Here is the link to the sign up genius for meals: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4bafaf2baafc1-dinner

If this link isn’t correct, I’ll edit this post.  (EDITED: I’m not fond of mushrooms or pickles.  It was suggested that on bad days I will put a cooler and a basket, to gather any goodies

Here are my chemo days- Jan 3rd, Jan. 23, Feb 13, Mar 6, Mar 27.

I humbly thank all of you for keeping up with me, offering to help, and actually following through. All my meals so far have been blessings that we wonder if we will ever be able to repay all that has been done and will be done.   It’s a new day.

Love to all!

Sandi

    Hey sweetie. I am literally available any day and time if you need me to do any errands. Anytime. I know I have the baby so you have to be careful about bugs and all but I could even drop anything off at your door if needed. Do you have a basket or something at the door for deliveries?

    Sandi- you know I start work in the afternoon. So, you just text or call and I can run out for you as well. You are close by, so it is no problem. I am thinking perhaps a Chicken Salad Chick run may be in order. If you think there food would be appealing…just let me know. I can get the container of food so that you can eat it when ever it sounds appealing. Also, can you suggest types of food that you like? I know that fresh fruits and raw vegetables are a no, so what types of food do you enjoy?
