[cancer|personal] Still tired

In the home stretch here, two more chemo sessions to go. On the plus side, my lower GI has restarted after five days of silence. On the minus side, my lower GI has restarted after five days of silence. Also I have leveled up (or down?) on fatigue. Slept nine hours straight last night.

The fatigue is going to be killer for the next 4-5 weeks, I think. I can still wake up and function, it's not quite thoroughly overwhelming, but it's definitely showing every sign of being a constant companion. And it's not just physical. Even my strategy of re-reading old favorite books is wearing thin.

The recent scan was clean, but my CEA levels were up to 2.0 on the last bloodwork. My oncologist isn't worried about this, but I can't help but be. So I continue bedeviled.

Not too tired to plan, though. Some things are coming together for the first quarter of next year. I'm going to leverage whatever health I have to move forward. For now, I yawn a lot.
