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.
