Day 2:

I am still feeling good! Last night was a long night. My chemo went on throughout the night so there was a lot of in and out and very little sleep. It was out of anyone’s control and necessary. I am hoping to get some sleep tonight. I am not sure who is more tired me or my mom. She spent the night on the pull out “bed” or I think she might call it a rock. I am sending everyone home tonight. I like my nurse and feel comfortable being by myself.
Today wasn’t as busy as yesterday. I had some visitors in the morning then Chris has been here with me all evening. We had some delicious “room service” delivered by a friend. I had a yummy bread bowl from Panera. I have no trouble with my appetite as of yet! I have had no nausea or vomiting which is good. I am taking more medications than I have every taken in my entire life. It is definitely weird being the patient. I am going to have to get used to the role reversal, although it might take some time.
We took our ½ mile walk around the unit tonight. I am trying to stay busy. I feel like I am stuck in one place moving from the bed to the chair. It was nice to get out and have a change in scenery. I am trying to stay active to keep my strength up. I think there might be yoga tomorrow, I am not sure yet. They told me I was allowed to do yoga as long as I don’t attempt to stand on my head or try any crazy moves J
Well I am going to spend some time with Chris and try to get some rest. I will be back tomorrow. I am very grateful to be surrounded by such amazing people. I am truly blessed. I am so thankful for all of the thoughts and prayers.

Till next time…KMS
