Day after chemo
I feel pretty good. Wow. After the treatment, we went to Cracker Barrel. I had a big plate of catfish, eggs, hash brown casserole, grilled toast and pancakes. I got full after the pancakes so the grilled toast didn't make it. I know, I've said this before: I thought I had cancer. Why am I eating like I'm pregnant?
I woke up at 3 a.m. and had two pieces of apple pie with ice cream. Finally, I ended up with nausea. Of course, Theresa Thi Taylor says: "What do you expect? You haven't had anything solid for over eight hours and you're eating all that sugar!" She ain't gotta talk to me like that. I'm the momma. She ain't. Picture me rolling my eyes and going to sit down.
I just took a anti-nausea pill and went back to sleep. I woke up and ate a big breakfast - no nausea, nothing. We'll see about the hair falling out. I know, it's a blessing that my hair hasn't started to fall. But I spent $150 on a wig. That's two pair of shoes from the Nine West Outlet! So I either need some hair to go or that doctor need to give me $150. I'm just venting, I'm grateful for not losing the hair. I'm just playing around. I'll hold onto the wig. I may need it later. But to tell the truth, I sure could use that change right now.
In a discussing with my mom today, we were trying to figure out how long I have been walking around with lung cancer. I must have had this cancer all the way back to when I was in the Army. I remember coughing and I was being treated with - yup, you guessed it, a form of Robitussin. This cough has been going on, that I remember, since 1995. This cancer had to be growing inside me for years. Can you believe it? -- years! Wow. That's the realization I ended up coming to. For it to have metastasized to this point, it had to have been growing for awhile.
When I came to that realization, I started wondering how I could have been proactive and found it sooner. What clues in my health did I miss? What kind of health clues did the doctor miss? I can't think of anything that would have given me clues. My step-dad mentioned that he remembered telling my mother that he thought I coughed a lot. As I remember, while transcribing my work, I can always hear me coughing. And of course I am coughing at the wrong time. You know, like when the deponent say something that doesn't make sense and I have to listen to it over, and over, and over. I eventually get it. wedding dresses for pregnant women
I know that this did not develop overnight. That means it is not going to go away overnight. Where are those magic wands that can cure in an instant? Does anybody have ferry dust I could use? If you have it please inbox me. If you charge, I only have $5.
Well, God knows what He's doing. I have the faith the size of a mountain. All God requires is a mustard seed. Like I always say: At least I don't have boils on the bottom of my feet.
