Feeling Better

The past 4 days or so, I've been feeling better than in the whole past month. Much of this is due to last week's meeting with the doctor who put me on four different anti-nausea meds which I was to take whether I felt I needed them or not. In other words, the plan was to anticipate the nausea before it started and have the meds already in my system. It seems to be working well. I've been able to eat and drink which has also helped me feel better. Of course, I still deal with fatigue but overall there has been remarkable improvement.

Today I will get another chemo treatment which makes me a bit nervous since the last two made me run high fevers for a couple days afterwards. Oh well...

Thanks to everyone who has been praying for me, sending cards, flowers and emails, bringing food, visiting and making me feel loved. I haven't been able to respond much but each act of kindness has been felt and has lifted my spirit.
