Cancer Fabulous Diaries: Chemo
Date: June 2
I’m feeling: Flustered
So I’m utterly exhausted and nothing seems to go as planned. I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off all day. Now I’m sitting on my chair, waiting for the laundry to finish drying.
I’m still trying to get used to my short hair. It definitely makes me feel different and i’m not loving it yet, but it is what it is, I guess. I’m sure by the time i’m used to it, it’ll be time to shave my head.
Tomorrow I go for chemo. I am a little nervous because I don’t know what to expect. I can only envision myself being very nauseous. However, I took my anti-nausea steroid just a few hours ago. I also had an injection of Zoladex in the tummy to temporarily shut down my ovaries, and blood work to make sure my white blood cells are armied up for chemo! I feel all drugged up. Tomorrow I have to be up nice and early for my four-hour dose of chemo drugs. Bring it on. – Sylvia Soo
