Saturday Summary

I didn't realize it has been so long since I blogged, dear ones. I apologize, but have been on the very bad side of things here. I can't focus on TV, reading, the computer, or anything else. Typing is very hard for me. Thought is very hard. :o) Nothing seems to work the way it's supposed to. The feeling is one of being very kind of unfocused, fuzzy---off? My head hurts.

They want to me to walk, but I'm afraid to go out into the hall to walk because I might loose control of bladder or bowels. Sometimes barely moving results in a change of underwear or scrubs.

They want me to eat, but eating the smallest bit of something causes nausea like crazy. Today I am able to sip on a coke and ice. They have tried just about every nausea combo they can think of--it's not for lack of trying.

There is a little light at the end of the tunnel. Today is Day 9 after the Transplant, so the ingrafting should happen soon. Did you see the comments in the last post? I have a couple of new readers--one a transplant nurse, the other involved in an organization that helps cancer patients, treatment through recovery. Thank you both for taking time to comment!

I'll try to post again tomorrow.

I had a feeling you were very sick. Continuing prayer here. Hoping you start feeling better very soon and can get something down. Completely understand the problems with not wanting to move. And chemo brain fog is awful. You seriously cannot think...I remember how terrible that is :(

You seem to be experiencing the worst of these side effects. Hang in there. It can only make you stronger. Prayers going out and up for you and will continue to do so

Prayers for you dear one.
I cannot fathom the discomfort! I can a little bit, but nothing compares to yours (for me). I will stop complaining and add my small discomforts to God for you.
Hugs and Aloha.

Hi! I'm sorry you are feeling so crappy and glad that when I talked to you over the phone today you sounded SO much better than you did on Friday when I was there to see you. I was also happy to hear that you are able to eat again and can't wait to bring you lunch tomorrow so you don't have to eat hospital food! :D

I'm glad the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight and can't wait for you to feel better enough (and counts to come up enough) for you to come home to continue recovery!

My guardian angel is with you to watch over you. :)

Love you so much!!
