Another bad day

September 11, 2017 Monday

I slept fairly well last night, with the help of NyQuil again and woke up to a strange day.  It’s not every day we expect tropical storm winds in north GA, but we did today.  I got ready and fixed breakfast and then went to Ringgold to sew with the Dudettes.  I had a good time and got some sewing done, but I really just didn’t feel decent or have much energy.  When it was time for me to leave,  the girls carried my stuff to my truck and put away my tables and chair – they made it possible for me to be there today and I really appreciated their help so much.

I drove back to Dalton and barely made it to the bathroom!!  I won’t bother you with any details cause I’m sure you don’t want those details.  Later, I sat in my chair and took a long nap.  My sewing stuff is still in my truck but I expect I will feel like getting it out tomorrow and bringing it into the house.  I did have a good lunch with the girls in Ringgold and then I had some watermelon later at home.  I think the watermelon has been a life saver for my digestive system!!!  I even had another grilled ham and cheese sandwich for dinner.  My digestive system is giving me fits and feels terrible but I know that since I am able to eat on a regular basis that I am doing so much better than many of the people in my situation!!

So I have felt terrible again today but perhaps tomorrow will be better.  It appears that my worse week in the chemo cycle is my first week after chemo.  At least that’s what’s happened in the past and I certainly hope next week is better.  I’ve had lots of creepy crawly skin on my face, head, lips, arms, hands today and lots of hot flashes.  I just feel BAD.  Thank goodness I’ve not felt like this for weeks and weeks like I expect lots of people do.  If I can just curl up and sleep, I think I’ll feel much better.

I have a few limbs down in my yard but they are small ones.  We are having some good strong bouts of wind and some heavy rain, but it’s not been too bad at my house.  We may have another strong punch go through, but I’m giving up on today.  Irma has caused much damage but looks like I may have gotten lucky again.
