Quick Update

Another Monday. I'm off to the hospital again this morning, for labs and methotrexate in my Ommaya reservoir. Fun.

I've done okay this week--just needed magnesium and potassium through the IV a few times, but no other transfusions. The mucositis is greatly improved. My mouth still feels weird, but it doesn't really hurt, and I can eat just about anything I want now. Still really, really tired.

It's rainy and chilly here this morning. I hate having to go out. Just want to snuggle under the covers and go back to sleep. I get up around 6:40 to spend time with Reece before he goes to school. If I didn't have to go to the hospital, I would go back to bed.

Better get myself dressed and ready to go. Have a good Monday.

So glad to see you post :) I'm sure this is such a hard time, and I'm not so sure I wouldn't have just gone back to bed, but also know that if it had been chemo for me, I would have forced myself to get up! Hoping this afternoon goes well and that you get a really good night's sleep tonight. Keeping you in my prayers constantly.
