Sat around yesterday after treatment in the morning. More ‘Spy’ being filmed. Continued to feel really crappy. Could not sleep during the day and took some time at night. Not keen on the steroids as they make me a bit restless. Did enjoy watching a bit of Jacob playing rugby on Saturday. They won well and he set up a try…proud daddy. The rain made me go home early.
Woke up this morning feeling a little better and have eaten more today which is good as I have to keep the calories up to help fight the treatment. A couple of milkshakes and some awesome carrot and coriander soup. Going to try a slightly bigger meal this evening and see how it goes. New books from library to start the new week.
Got sent the date for my stomach tube to be fitted which as you can imagine made me feel down. I do not react well to anaesthetic and it is being done on the day of chemo and radiotherapy. Very poor effort. I will speak to the Dr tomorrow about it. Worried about the week ahead as I am starting to feel the effects of radiotherapy. Lack of saliva and a large reduction in taste. Starting to feel the back of the throat. Not enough for painkillers yet but will not be far away.
Need a shot in the arm as I am not feeling as good about this process as maybe I should. Thank you to these people that have written, sent me things and given me kind words. It means so much when I am down.
