Cycle 6: Week 2: Day 3

This was my view last night: lots of options of drinks, some uneaten food. Having pretty icky nausea on and off in the day and evening. Felt pretty ick when I woke up in the night but was able to sleep it off. Praying for a more settled tummy today. Feel okay energy-wise but feel like if I move too much or too fast the nausea might come back. So amazed and thankful to have made it to cycle 5 (last cycle) without any queasy, that was one of my big concerns when I found out I would need chemo. I don't like to vomit... Like even thinking about it makes me feel panic! God is good, medicine is good, I am grateful to have made it so far (to cycle 6!!) without nausea!!! Please pray a gentle weekend for me, today is the last day of "the big meds". Did I tell you that my hemoglobin counts jumped 32 points this week!!!! Awesome!!! The blood transfusion did a good thing for my body, the nurses were very pleased with my improved colour, "and your lips aren't white!" LOL I was happy to have energy and to be able to walk in my house without being totally out of breath! I still have moment of awe and amazement over that! Very grateful!!!


  1. I must say, I was amazed at your energy yesterday... Despite the nauseau you looked fantastic!!!


  2. Yup...that certainly is a lot of drink options. It's like your own little beverage buffet.
