Well I think the chemos are getting worse and better at the same time. Certain side effects are getting worse and others are getting better.
The “chemo brain” seems to be getting worse. For example, my mom came over Wednesday night (the night of my treatment) and brought me a present (a cute new pool bag). The next day, I went into my closet and was like “whose cute new pool bag is this?” I didn’t even remember her coming over. 😦 And I forgot to call my BFF Kelly on her birthday. 😦
I was able to work pretty much a full day on Thursday and Friday though so the mornings I’m still doing ok. The afternoons have been worse this time around though. I’ve been way more tired this time and have taken long naps each afternoon. My throat is still really dry but it’s not sore anymore, thanks to the ice and Dan’s nursing efforts on chemo day. I still feel really tired today but it will hopefully go away soon (at least by Wed). Yesterday, I tried to get out of the house and go to Target in the morning. I was still pretty tired and stopped at Subway on the way home for lunch. For whatever reason, I about passed out at the register and had to sit down because everything went black and I got really hot. Then my stomach started getting upset last night and I didn’t sleep all that great. Ugh. I’m ready for them to be done but all else considering, I’m doing great. 🙂
