I was terribly terribly awfully physically beat up yesterday. I had a wonderful day on Saturday with my daughter. It was all outside time, just walking and chit chatting. I also made the mistake of eating lunch. The chemo is causing me huge issues again with my digestion. Every part. My appetite is weird, my sense of taste is wacky, I have sores in my mouth, my stomach has a burning hole in it and terrible diarrhea. So Sunday my Lebanese food while incredibly tasty and good on Saturday made me a mess on Sunday. I could not eat anything. Period. I had water. Lots and lots of water. I tried a piece of cheese at about 7pm and that was terrible. I think I am better today.
I also did yard work and my hands (neuropathy) feel terrible. AND the neuropathy in my feet is really bad! For no apparent reason. Though I can now tell you that walking barefoot outside is a thing of the past. It’s like walking on glass.
AND the bursitis in my hips is flaring up. Other people seem to have it much worse in the cold but last year and this year spring made it very bad.
#StupidChemo !! That is hopefully saving my life. 🙂 It’s always about the good with the bad.
I was going to go to yoga this morning but I think I am going to skip it. I don’t want to be there when I discover my digestive system is not back on track. At least since this is the 2nd time I have gone through this issue I know better how to deal with it, and what I need to do to keep myself strong. Lots of liquid meals with high nutrition will be in my future today. Maybe if it works out I will get in another park walk today. 🙂
Frankie enjoyed our day outside. Please note that the rope he is on is not on the ground. Even though he looks peaceful he is at the end of his rope.
When he gets nervous he sits on the porch. He never made it to relaxed enough to nap but a couple of times he got all stretched out and closed his eyes for a second before a bug or a bird or a plane would make a noise and he would be on high alert again. He definitely has feral cat in his genes.
I hope it is a glorious day for any one who sees this. I have a good book to finish – http://www.amazon.com/Daemon-Daniel-Suarez/dp/0451228731 , thank you to my sister for the recommendation a long time ago – so no matter what else happens I will enjoy that.
