My hair was coming out in clumps, so my sweet hubby helped me shave my head yesterday. A friend’s son said, ” She looks like she’s ready to rock the apocalypse!” (That’s my favorite comment so far.)
Quick update on yesterday’s hospital visit.
It was such a long day. Full-brain radiation, stop in the lab, bone scan and CT, both with contrast, plus two infusions.
Everyone was so nice. We got out a little early too.
But I did experience what was very close to my worst nightmare. I fell (in front of) a public restroom. The only way it could have been worse if it was actually IN the restroom. I was icked out all day. But again, that is why I bring Purell wipes and other emergency stuff in my bathroom bag that I bring with me.
I was so tired by the end of the day (about 7 hours). My husband and I picked up fries at In N Out on the way home, which was a complete joy! I love car-fries! We eat the hot fries in the car on the way home. It is just heaven.
Kipp and Alice are ready for the Wed and Fri games this week!!! My docs think playing is a great way to exercise my brain through all this!
Yesterday’s radiation went really well. Day 2 today. The fatigue has already set in. It hit fast this time. It took a few days last time.
May I introduce Quicksilver (can you tell my husband named this one? LOL)
I had to cannibalize some of Wilbert’s spring set, but I will be starting a red, white, and blue yarn-bombing on Quicksilver to celebrate Memorial Day.
Amos is happy to meet Quicksilver.
I go in for an MRI today. And tomorrow I start physical therapy.
I love the look on their faces when they ask “Are you claustrophobic?” And I answer with “yes, but it’s just an MRI, I’ve done them before. So I can just suck it up and deal.” They always look at me like they don’t know what to do with me after that answer. LOL
I will let you know how things go. I don’t know when I will have the results back, but hopefully soon, and hopefully there won’t be much to report. 😉
