Today was rough – Day 4 of chemo, Day -3 going into Transplant. I joke about posts being short. This one actually will be. Nausea set in early and I was given breakthrough medicine to keep me from throwing up. Just to be safe, I wore a mask, lest I fall asleep and not make it to the bathroom. Also – just to be safe, because of COVID and so many people coming into and out of my room all day. It just felt easier to stay on.
Time was weird today – I would close my eyes to blink and wake up an hour later. I feel fuzzy, a bit discombobulated. I took the elevator, which is a first because I wasn’t sure if I should do the stairs.
Don’t get me wrong – I could do the stairs. I just don’t think it’s wise, so I didn’t.
And now I’m post-Busulfan showered and ready for bed. I did manage to keep down grilled cheese and tomato soup. And for dinner, I skipped my pasta and went straight to the strawberry shake. Can’t remember the last time I had a shake, and I don’t think the flavor that was produced could exactly qualify as strawberry – but it was cold and smooth and stayed down, so that’s all that counts.
Whiskers was simpatico with me today, so that counts too.
