The healing continues. That is what I have named this part of my treatment is The Healing because it seems to be taking one an identity unto itself. Here is what is going on:
1. I am still very stiff and sore. My right side is much worse than my left. That was the cancer side. In fact I can use my left arm almost normally but the other one will get horrible shooting, burning pain when I do too much. Too much means opening my door, petting the cat, holding a cup and moving in and out of bed. The pain comes suddenly and very quickly and I am never quite sure what is going to set it off. The drain was removed from my right side but the left still needs one. So at this time I cannot shower. I also not flexible enough to reach my head yet to wash my hair. Or shave my pits. Gruesome.
2. My antibiotics are still evil. I know they are “for good” and all but my poor stomach is really paying the price. Terrible nausea and burping and I haven’t been able to hold down food since I got home. So I have just stopped eating. My thighs are looking slimmer but at what cost? Fortunately chocolate doesn’t seem to bother me much. Hmmmm… I got some pro-biotics today and have to cleverly find a safe time I can take them when they don’t interfere with my medication. I have to take those antibiotics 3 times a day so those free windows of time are few.
3.Yoshi has discovered that I cannot pick her up or chuck her off of places she is not allowed to be. So like a typical child she is pushing the boundaries and being quite bad. I would be really pissed if it wasn’t so funny.
4.Right now I wake up feeling pretty good and then I putter around the house and read blogs (even if I don’t comment yet) and do little things but by the end of the day I am soooo stiff and sore I can hardly sit upright. I still don’t quite get what it is that I am doing that makes me so pooped. I guess just moving. Last week I slept most of the days away, to facilitate The Healing, which was great to make time go by. Now I do not nap and I am bored out of my skull. TV sucks, my DVD service has sent me boring discs this week and I cannot do ANYTHING to amuse myself. Normally reading is a pleasure but it hurts to sit up to read for long periods as the only position I can lay on is on my back which makes me sore as well.
In summation I am one grumpy motherfucker.
I cannot wait until I feel better and am finished the antibiotics. Thursday is my last day. It seems like forever! I am really frustrated
Cabin Fever has set in.
