I slept well last night and then got up at 7:40 this morning. Life is much more active for me in Roswell than in Dalton and that’s a good thing. When I bent over to pull on my jeans, something in my back kind of slid to the side and I was in PAIN!!! This has happened before and I’m sure it will again but it always hurts for a while when this happens. I took lots of Motrin today and I expect I will tomorrow also. I have kept moving and stretching my back but I also sit down when needed and rest my back.
I wasn’t nearly as active today because of my back but I still had lots of fun with the kids. They are SO cute!!!! I LOVE being around them. But I had to come back to Dalton since I have lab and Blockheads (a sewing group) tomorrow. I took more Motrin before the drive but could barely walk once I got home so had to take more pills.
Once I was back in Dalton, I got food for Blockheads and for my dinner tonight and then came home. I’ve rested since then and plan to get to bed soon. Got a busy day tomorrow so I need to be as rested as I can.
I’ve had diarrhea today, of course, and I’ve had lots of runniness with my nose and eyes – I guess something is blooming that even my Benedryl and the other sinus medicine (can’t remember because of chemo brain!! That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it!!) can’t handle. I don’t know if it’s the sinus thing (I think it is) or chemo, but I’ve been light-headed several times today. I don’t like that feeling, but maybe it’ll go away soon. I have been quite thirsty today but maybe that’s sinus problems too. Who knows.
I did have my pre-surgery interview today over the phone so that’s done. I don’t know how I’ll go from midnight until afternoon with NO water or liquids. I guess I’ll do it on the day of surgery but I am certain I will not be happy about it. Poor Sue will have to listen to me complain!!!! I think she is so considerate that she will not be drinking water in front of me. She’s just like that.
