So my weekend started off a little rough…. managed to get a fever on Friday and ended up in the emergency room to get IV antibiotics. Aside from the lovely four hour stay in extremely uncomfortable chairs, it was just another bump in my road to recovery, and completely expected in this stage of my treatment. I was exactly one week after chemo, so my white blood count was at it’s lowest, which made me susceptible to whatever I may come across, along with whatever my little petri dishes might bring home from school/daycare. Nothing that wasn’t taken care of with a little antibiotic though, and I have actually felt really great for the last two days. I would even venture to say NORMAL! I have my energy back, the nausea is gone, and I finally feel somewhat caught up. Too bad I get zapped again on Friday…. only 7 more treatments to go!
As far as the hair loss goes, I am noticing more and more every day. My scalp itches terribly, and at one point I was ready to shave it just so I could but hydrocortisone on it! I did work past that though… :) I’m gonna hold on to it as long as I can! Hahaha!
