A Teensy Bit Better today...

Posted Jul 31 2009 11:55am
and I mean teensy, but hell, I'll take what I can get at the moment! Found that I could navigate the house without the cane today as I feel a little bit stronger after having had the procrit shot for my low reds yesterday. I was really wracking my brain to figure out HOW ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH, could I make myself start feeling better. That's the frustrating thing....it had to be a medical intervention, that I had no control over. I do believe the shot helped to kick start the reds to start working....wonder if they have a portable thingie to plug mself into when I start feeling shitty? I know my body well enough to know when something is happening and it definitely was, as proven that the shot has made me feel a bit better today. Even threw in 2 loads of laundry today...woo hoo. Dang....I'm not asking much am I, when all I'd like is enough energy to do some simple household tasks right now? I still don't know if I'll be starting on Velcade tomorrow or or not, since I'm not up to par. Have appt at 10.45 am tomorrow, so I'll pack a little "chemo bag", just in case I do. Chemo bag contents: small blankie (it's cold in infusion room)....my I-Pod, 2 magazines, the morning paper, a book and some small snacks, esp since my weight yesterday was 92! Isn't that pathetic? I must look like skeletor. I'm not sure it was the right weight anyway as I wasn't paying attention when she weighed me (and kind of got a ditzy girl I rarely get) and to lose 2 1/2 pounds in 5 days seems a bit much, so I'll pay attention tomorrow and see where that is too. Added 2 Boosts to my daily regime (gosh they are filling), but I gotta pack on some weight as that too can become a detriment to healing if my weight gets too low. Sheesh....anytime, anyone wants to stop the merry-go-round, (or even slow it down), I promise to get off :)
