Another good day

September 5, 2017 Tuesday

I slept well last night until 6:00 and I did not take any NyQuil last night.  I was awake about an hour then fell back to sleep for about 45 minutes until Coen woke me up. He’s so sweet, even first thing in the morning.

I got to take Zoë to school and that’s always fun. I love those in-the-car conversations where it’s just me and her!!  They are always entertaining!!

Coen and I did a little mowing in the back yard and then later Zoë ‘helped’ us!!  Then we had a nice thunderstorm and that was fun. There was a lot of excitement about lightning and thunder and the dark sky and then the rain started. It was a “toad-strangler” at least I think that’s what Sue calls them!!  It was fun to watch them watch the rain!!  They stayed mostly dry.

As far as side effects, I was too busy to be tired. Actually since it’s the end of this chemo cycle, I think my energy is coming back. The diarrhea was bad today.  I’m really tired of that but I expect it’s nowhere near over yet.  My coughing was about like yesterday which means it’s bad when I cough but I don’t cough terribly often!

Tomorrow I get to take Coen to school – that’s the first time ever for me!  Looking forward to that. At some point tomorrow, I’ll head back to Dalton and get ready for the LAST chemo treatment!!  Yay for that.
