Follow my unexpected cancer journey...the good, the bad, and the ugly!
If one were to use a lint roller on their head, how weird would that be?? Asking for a friend....
I'm just gonna leave this little montage of Prednisone memes here just to give you a glimpse into my life......all so, so true.
My lovely week in the hospital for round 2 of chemo...
I've always said if you don't have a sense of humor, you could never be a teacher. You have to be able to laugh, laugh at yourself, and just laugh at the situations you're in. Well, the same goes for having cancer...so basically don't read my socks unless you can laugh : )
Couldn't be more happy to finally be home and out of the hospital! I got pretty much zero sleep while there and was miserable. For my chemo, I have to have someone come in every 2 hours to do a blood return (basically connecting to my port and making sure I have blood flowing still), then vitals every 2 hours, medicine 3-4x a day, and blood draws at 3am (yes, what a lovely hour). All of this on top of my IV beeping at random hours that they have to come in to fix etc and changing my bags out that are hooked up to me by IV 24-7. Basically, sleeping is out of the question...although its pretty much impossible to sleep in those beds anyway.
Side note, I felt the earthquake while in the hospital. I was on the 7th floor and obviously in a not study bed...and awake that late since I couldn't sleep. The nurse had just given me more sleep medicine to try to help since the other 2 obviously weren't doing anything and after she left 20 or so minutes later I thought, "wow, this medicine might actually be working and I get some sleep...." I could feel my bed slightly shaking and the hanger above me to help people out of bed was shaking. I thought I was going crazy but the next morning a different nurse asked if I felt it HA, guess it wasn't the medicine and glad I'm not crazy! Sidenote: still didn't get any sleep with 3 different sleep meds...
As for this week, I have dr's appointments (including my shot tomorrow), my VipKid interview, picking up my wig, and then more dr and labs!
