I don’t much feel like typing, but I feel even less like talking… so here it is. My apologies to those of you who’ve called and I haven’t answered.
The fever is lingering, but so far the blood cultures have been negative – so it’s increasingly likely the fever is just a side effect of the chemo and not because of some opportunistic infection. My nausea has stuck around… ratcheting up the violence yesterday. My back, which I put out the day before the dreaded ER visit has been an almost constant partner.
So what’s good? The pain medication has taken the edge off, and combined with the nausea medication I’ve been able to sleep through much of this – even if the symptoms haven’t abated. The most significant piece of good news is that the chemo will stop sometime early Tuesday morning.
