Looking Back to Christmas Day.
Today was a good day. Mary came and cleaned house for me for the first time. I had to do a lot of the work. This house hadn't been cleaned since around Christmas time, so there was a heavy coat of dust to remove. I did our bathroom, our bedroom, the laundry room and the kitchen. Mary did the other three bedrooms, the other two baths and the living room and dining room. It was a lot to clean, but we got it done. I was so glad to not have to do it all myself! It feels good to have the house clean!
I took Mary home and on the way home got sick! I made it home and straight to the bathroom before I lost lunch, which was over two hours previous to that. I went back over my journal and noted that this nausea started around the first of February and I've barfed 9 times over the last 6 weeks. I'll present that information to the doc in Lawton when I go for my treatment tomorrow. Then I'll present it to the doc in Houston next week. If my numbers are good, I'm for keeping with this treatment. I think I'll do better with the nausea if I can get past the allergy season. I get all choked on the mucous in my sinuses and then gag on it; I think I wouldn't lose it if I could keep from gagging on that mucous. Sorry if that's TMI (too much information), but it's how it is for me. For someone who may be following this blog for a clue as to how they or someone they love may be coping with life with cancer, I think it's important that I be totally honest. I am as positive as I can be, but facts are facts and I don't want to leave out any that might be helpful to someone.
