Today I am tired. So I’ve slept a lot. Drank a lot of water- to help flush the system. Peed a lot. Took my required steroid medicine, Dexsmetasone. Took a dose of the Lorazepam when I felt a slight twinge of unsettled stomach. Is it going to get worse or better or just go along like this for a while?… watching and waiting.
Meanwhile I’ve followed the suggestions for how to eat. I had oatmeal for breakfast, crackers and peanut butter for morning snack, half a turkey sandwich for lunch, half a grilled cheese sandwich and a satsuma orange for supper. Now, just after taking a Lorazepam and a Prochlorperazine I’m snacking on dry raisin bran (no poop yet today)
One other medicine that I received today was Neulasta- maybe you’ve seen it advertised on TV. It’s a white blood cell booster and we chemo people get an injection of it 24 hours after our chemo treatment. I left Northstar yesterday with a mini-pump attached to my arm. At 5pm today it beeped 10 times and then slowly injected the medicine into my arm.

Not an exciting day, but at least I haven’t been miserable.
