Well this chemo is never dull. I never know how I will feel from one day to the next. And sometimes I'll be feeling good and it goes down hill fast!! I'm still so nauseous most of the time. When I went for chemo last Friday I had lost another 2 lbs from 2 weeks ago. I can't lose any more,I'm down to 108lbs. I had to see my primary Dr. yesterday and bless his soul was quite alarmed with my current situation. He asked me several times if there was anything he could do to help me...and then he actually waived his fee!!! He spoke about God and putting more of it into my life. He wants me to try to eat more...well that is what everyone wants right now..but it's just not happenning for me. I have another friend also on Navelbine,she isn't sick but she has lost her appetite as well. I'll see the Onc on the 12th of Dec. and see what he thinks. My PCP was talking about marinol...but i told him my Onc has already addressed that and I will soon get a RX for that as well. I'm also trying to take a nausea med around the clock whether I'm sick or not...I'm not sure if it is helping yet..but it sure is making me tired as we all know phenergan does.
Thanksgiving was a beautiful day...my son and grand daughter came with his fiancee..what a great surprise for me...I was speechless!! I have some good pics that I'll post soon if I can. They stayed for 5 days..I was feeling pretty miserable because of the chemo,but when I felt better we went and did something!! I did not over do it at all. I just wish they didn't have to see me so sick. I can see their scared for me. I'm scared for me!!! Especially my weight..my PCP told me I look emancipated...gee thanks DOC!!!!! Oh well at least Christmas is coming (my favorite time of the year) and I know it will bring me out of this small depression.
My Mom finally got to go home last Sat. and she took my "Baby Girl" home with her. I know my sweet little puppy will give lots of love and in return I know my Mom will take good care of her. I will miss my Mom,she did so many things for me. I was spoiled while she was here. But I can understand she misses her pets and her personal items. I just wish she lived closer to us...but 6 hours isn't all to bad. Well I'm done for the time being will keep more up to date if I can. I'm off chemo until Dec 12th so that is a very good thing!!~~~~~~Joanne
