Slow going

I had my second dose of chemo last Monday while my parents were here. Tuesday I was tired and Wednesday and Thursday mornings were the worst of it. After sleeping all night, with nothing to eat or drink, there is so much acid in my stomach I feel like I have the flu. Some dry toast seemed to help settle everything down a bit. I think I'm learning how to deal with the stomach issues so hopefully next month will be even easier. Since Friday I have been feeling much better. I think my counts are bottoming out again because I'm just sluggish. I will get my IVIG transfusion on Thursday and Friday so hopefully that will give me a little boost! I was also able to lower my steroids down to 40mg everyday. Let's pray no issues appear, and I get the all clear to go down to 30mg!

Chemo Tomorrow

I have been doing well since I last posted. I have been able to reduce my steroids down to 50 mg and I haven't had any problems. My second dose of Chemo is tomorrow morning at 8am. Luckily my parents are here this week so we have plenty of help if I'm down for a few days.
