Last week was pretty good, chemo side effects wise. I felt like myself much of the week, insofar as that's possible. Of course, it was the 'good' week, leading into chemo number eleven of twelve. However, so far this week is shaping up more poorly. I woke up around 1:30 am with a dire need to urinate what turned out to be about a teaspoon's worth, and never went back to sleep. Gave up and arose at 4:00 am, only to discover a generic aversion to food this morning. I'm really hoping this passes.
Cognitively I'm doing okay on an hour-by-hour basis, but my focus on longer term stuff is wonky. Thank Ghu for lists and notes and emails, but it's still strange.
All this of course is leading into the final chemo session of this series, about ten days from now. Then the climb out, which will be slow and tedious but at the least trending in the right direction. I'm tired of being foggy and fatigued and subject to the whims of my GI tract.
