I had a fairly productive day on Monday, as far as the office work was concerned. I both emailed and phoned my supervisor to go over the status of various assignments and also to inform her that I am almost done with my current assignment and to request additional work. She will assign me a new project during the course of this week, she said.
However, I have started to feel some side effects from Friday's chemo session. Bone/muscle aches and some lower abdominal cramping. I took some Tylenol for the pain, which is what I was told to do, and dozed on the sofa with a heating pad for the cramping. At least I wasn't nauseated. But the aches and pains meant I didn't feel like doing anything much, such as my sewing. So I had a quiet day apart from the office work.
Daughter, too, had a quiet, restful day. She did one of her homework assignments, took the trash cans to the curb for me and generally kept me company.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Getting the office work done without any problems
- An afternoon nap on the sofa
- Relatively mild side effects
- A quiet, restful day
- Daughter keeping me company
How was your Monday? Did you have a good start to your week?
