So after a weekend pity party, I'm feeling much better today. I wish it was easier for me to deal with the Big Chemo weekend. It's so hard for me to be too tired to make a meal or wash a load of clothes. Maybe it's something I won't ever get used to. I'm trying to stay positive, I really am. But it's a challenge.
In case anyone was wondering, the Neulasta shot gave me what felt a lot like a stress headache, almost a migrane, for about two days. Sometimes I felt pain in my joints. Nothing this tough-y can't handle though. I hope it's working and I have a whole bunch of infection fighting cells now.
On the Erbitux front, I have dry patches on my face. Annoying. I'm using the cream the doc game me. It's not too bad.
Other side effects? We're starting to find strands of red hair here and there. Sad face.
Really though, I can't believe how much better I feel today. It's like someone flipped a switch. And I'm glad. Today we'll play catch up with just about everything, from schooling to cleaning to exercise. Tuesdays are my favorite day and least favorite day...thankful I feel so much better, but dreading Little Chemo tomorrow. I better get going...I still haven't figured out how to get the house to clean itself. ;)
