Well, this sucks..

Chemo went pretty well and I even went to a party on Saturday night. I only stayed for 90 mins or so, but I showered and did my hair, so it counts! The food was great, but I thought I might pay for it that night. And I did, but then the vomiting continued into Sunday. I didn't feel badly, I would just eat, then vomit, eat, them vomit. I know, I finally figured it out and stopped eating. I thought it might be anxiety and then the fever came. It broke early Monday morning, so I thought I was on the mend. Monday I layed (sp) low with Nolan, Mason when to school, and Mom picked him up for me. Then the headache. GEESHH - can this get more sequential? When Mason got home he told me his ears hurt. I get my scope out and, yep, he has an ear infection. I make an appointment for Tuesday afternoon. Grant stayed home today to help with Nolan, take Mason to the doctor, get the rx, coach soccer practice, and take care of me. Sometime on Monday I got a cough. Mason has been fighting a cough for a while and so has my Mom. GREAT. Tuesday comes - no food in my system for now two days and I vomit. How is that possible? Time to call the oncologist. So, I call down playing everything but asking if I am missing anything. They come back with OTC cough syrup to calm the cough so that I can keep food down. Why didn't I think of that? I even have the cough syrup they recommended. I am SUCH a loser. So now, I am doing better, but not still not eating a lot actually pretty much nothing, but the fever is gone, headache gone and I can go two minutes without coughing. So, this is when I usually get mad. This is suppose to be my good week. When my good week is "taken" from me, I get really upset and wonder how much longer I can do this? I get sick to my stomach thinking about going to chemo without having some good days in between. I think am I ever going to be free of my bed? Will I ever be normal again? I know....I was normal for a whole year. I think I just have to focus on the next whole "normal" year. If it would just get here already!!!!!! ;) Love, Ang

At least he didn't bring home head lice or impetigo or some other common-to-kindergarten malady. Sorry about your lost week. Be kind to yourself...Love and hugs to you.

Let's look at the silver lining here. If this happened during your "bad" week, you'd be twice as sick and feeling WAY worse. So even though you lost your "good" week, you "bad" week won't be a "horrible" week. How's that for a positive spin!

Welcome to having a kid in school... in kindergarten it is an ongoing snuffly nose until the immune system builds up. No fair to you though. Since you lost some of your "good week" I hope your "bad week" will not be so bad! Only 2 more rounds, crossed fingers, good thoughts and lotsa prayers!

Hang in there, honey. You can, and will, get through this week and next.

Agree with the germy kindergarten.....between this and the whole lunch dibacle, it's time to take action and pull Mason out of school.....really, it's overrated.....love you -
