I slept most of yesterday. I had gone to bed early and awoke at 6:15 a.m. I knew something was not right. This was more than nausea. I have not had to take any meds in between sessions until yesterday. I also have not called in after hours to the on-call oncologist but that changed too. He asked what I had been given for breakthrough nausea. I had not been given anything so he ordered up a miracle drug that worked quickly. I suppose it could be a flu, despite having the flu shot recently, but still it sucks. I cancelled my day and slept from 9:00 am until 7:00 pm with a few moments of trying to order the meds, drink some fluids and have the odd phone call.
I am grateful for those who raised prayers, checked in, and dropped off the meds. I find myself continually blessed by the support I receive when I need it. I realize though that I need a better plan. I need to give a few friends some keys and set up some sort of care plan if there will be days like that. I am more than lucky to have friends who will do this so now I need to start saying yes.
I am keeping this short as I am still not my usual 85% so I need to rest again but thought I should check in.
Who lives in your support network?
How have you coped with a day that knocked you down?
but not out,
I am blessed with
good friends who
rise to the occasion.
I am grateful for my Simons.
I’m supposedly cancer free at the moment. I’ve had a tumour removed though. Depending on your type of cancer there are probably chat rooms that might be more helpful. You have bone cancer? Every cancer is different. I’m not sure I’m the best person but you can give it a shot.
thank you for responding was it hard to recover after you had the tumor removed
Did you get the email I sent to your email address?
I am grateful Suzanne that you have such great friends around providing you with support. Say yes to any support offered. Your friends will feel good about helping. Hope you don’t have any more days like the past one.
Rest up, Love, Karen
