Since Monday she has had the usual post-chemo gross mouth taste, and been quite energyless overall - although she does have bouts of activity - she has been able to take the children swimming and do some other normal things too. On Thursday she felt terrible and spent most of the afternoon in bed, and on Friday evening/Saturday was feeling nauseous & shakey....and was eventually sick on Saturday evening ;-(
Thankfully friends have looked after our children in the daytime in the week and we've been brought meals each evening too which is a massive help ;-)
Emotionally she is strong but inevitably gets a bit fed up with feeling yuk....today she is still feeling somewhat dicky but I think is on the mend slowly - today, we went out for lunch at the Toby carvery with her mum and dad which was just fab !
The other thing she was told on Monday is that they DO plan to do another 3 chemo's assuming her body will cope with the onslaught - which is both good and bad I think !
Anyway, stuff we're grateful for :-
- Chemo went ahead as planned
- Toby carvery (eat as much as you like) !
- Holiday coming - a whole week away !
- Sickness feelings/shakiness to go
- Strength to return in time for holiday !
- Ability to endure the next 3 chemo's !
