Sick, sick, sick!

Well….I’m pretty sick.  I’m having a hard time eating and the best thing for me right now is sleep.  Jeremy and my mom have been great.  My mom stayed with me all day yesterday and then Jeremy took the kids out for dinner and I was asleep when he got home so he did homework and bedtime all by himself…..for the second night in a row:(

It’s hard to stay upbeat when you feel sick….but hopefully in a few days I’ll be on the mend.

    Keep plugging along. I start my chemo in 2 weeks. It is a good feeling to read about someone else going through this too. I have ductal breast cancer, just turned 42 and have 3 kids. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Come visit with me over on my blog.
    I hope you are feeling a little better today!

    Hey there 🙂 I just had my first bout of chemo last week so I hear you on the sleep thing. I have grade III IDC and I’m turning 34 this week. I too have small children. 🙂 I find it helps me to read about others going through this too so feel free to come visit my blog as well. 🙂 Anyway, I’m so sorry you are in this club, but I’m praying for you too. Hang in there. Feel better soon. 🙂

    Hi Jen…. it really stinks, doesn’t it? Well, fear not (not meaning to take from another post) it doesn’t last forever. Yes that going back and getting that shot is a stinker!! I would be fine till I went to get that and then I didn’t want to be seen or heard from till it faded away.
    You wont get sick with teh radiation. You will get burnt tho. Like a really bad sunburn. You get tired too. I am trying to think.. I don’t remember any other problems with the radiation. I DID, however, get Mastitis twice. It is where the breast swells up with fluid. I had just gotten the clearance when it started to swell again. So, I went in the very next day and had it taken care of.. but the healing was done inside out instead of the typical inside out. The first time my breast swelled up, It was that way for over a week. That was very painful and the doc didnt really look at it. Just said… well, you only have one more and the swelling will go down about a week after that. WELL.. I went in and was in tears.. the nurses looked at it and said what it was and then he came in and said, “WOW, that is the worst case of Mastitus I have ever seen!! He called for an appt to see my surgeon the next day and I ended up in ER that night. I was miserable. I was so infected I was in the hospital for 5 days. But other than that, you truly do feel better.. not all the sickness.. just tired and weak.
    Expect after everything is over.. to start having all these strange things start happening to you.. It is called Cancer Brain. I believe anyways. I’ll have to double check. Heck, I dont even remember where i read it at. You feel like you are falling apart. And you are!! LOL. Maybe you will be one of the lucky ones and not have that. I am just so surprised they didnt take the breast off FIRST before the treatments unless they are hoping to save it. They did my lumpectomy first (I didnt want the mas..). Maybe it was because I was stage 4?? Who knows.
    But I lived thru it and so will you. All that sickness just drives you nuts. But God is there.. He always has and he always will be. He is right there for you to get mad.. to fight back.. It’s ok.. that is what he wants you to do.. .GET MAD AND FIGHT BACK!. You will be a winner in this personal war of yours. Just remember this.. that medication is AMMO.. you skip getting your AMMO, you arent going to have all you need to fight back. Keep that in mind. Yeah, it sucks to be so sick…. but remember.. keep fighting and dont let anything stand in your way!! You WILL win!!
    BTW, did anyone get pics of you swimming in the nude? OMG!! what will the neighbors think!!! *G* You seem to like wearing the scarves.. I just wore the baseball hats as I said before… and it wasnt until I was starting to do my radiation that I took it all off… My boyfriend took a couple of pictures.. at first I was mad, but then I thought. what the heck… I can do a before and after. *G*
    You take care, Jen. We all pray for you daily. We are behind you all the way. And remember, if you need anything, my number is in the directory.
    With God’s Love,
