Just a quick update: Yesterday afternoon, I began to feel a bit queasy. It wasn't too bad and I tried to fight it, but, finally took an anti-nausea pill a little after 4:00 p.m. A little later, I went for a walk around the block with daughter, to get some fresh air and exercise. I had a bit of an upset tummy, too, so I rested in the evening, and took it easy. I finished knitting another hat - I am thinking of making a few extra hats and leaving them at the treatment center for anyone who might like to have one. I took another anti-nausea pill before I went to sleep.
Woke up feeling a little lethargic, this morning. Not tired, exactly, just a bit blah. My mouth felt very dry, even after drinking water. I felt better after drinking a cup of tea. I don't feel nauseated, so I haven't taken another anti-nausea pill. However, I ate a graham cracker and nibbled on a piece of preserved ginger, just as a preventive measure.
Daughter did some grocery shopping for me and brought a friend of mine for a visit. That was a nice diversion. Daughter has just returned after dropping my friend off at her home.
Planning a quiet evening, resting.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Fairly mild side effects
- My daughter's love and caring and patience with me
- Friends and family who call and visit
- Offers of help
- A day of sunshine and warm temperatures
Hope you have all had a lovely day.
