I woke up this morning after having some very tiring dreams involving moving plants in a greenhouse?!?!?!?!?! I got to thinking about it and I think I did not have many, if any, dreams during chemo and certainly none while I was taking NyQuil for my coughing, but I have had quite a few dreams in the past few nights since I quit taking NyQuil. Just thought I’d mention that.
My back did not hurt when I got up but by the time I was dressed and getting ready to leave for Blockheads, the pain was back. The pain has gotten worse as the day has moved on and the more I move, the worse it is. I have taken some Motrin during the day and that may have helped some.
I appreciated the girls carrying all my stuff into Martha’s house and then carrying it back out to the truck at the end of my time there. I really enjoyed our time together, looking at each other’s quilts, looking at other quilts we might like to make, talking, laughing and having a wonderful lunch that we all contributed to creating. It was a really nice day.
I went to lab after Blockheads and my numbers were a little high but the nurse said they had noticed that my numbers are high one week and then low the next – seems they do that consistently. She said that since it’s a regular pattern, it’s okay and she’d see me next week. Fine with me.
Then I went to Longhorn to have dinner with the travel girls. We had a nice dinner but I ate too much. I ate too much lunch and too much supper. That’s not good because I am too full now and I’d really rather not be.
Then I headed home. I should have gone to Kroger but I just didn’t feel up to it. I’ll go sometime tomorrow. I have to visit my regular doctor and get cleared from having bronchitis before the surgery center will let me have surgery in 10 days. I think I’m over the bronchitis though I am still coughing some but my cough is much better. I guess they will know for sure tomorrow. I want to get that surgery done!!
I have had diarrhea today, but not tooooo bad. I have mostly felt pretty bad and I don’t really know why. Maybe it’s from taking Motrin and not being able to take a nap. Speaking of naps, I could have so easily fallen asleep about 7:00 tonight but I knew that would interfere with going to sleep in bed so I made sure I stayed awake. I would have gone to bed at 7:00 but it was just too bright to do that. Now it’s 8:17 and it’s about dark, so I’ll be taking my shower and getting to sleep very soon.
Morning weight – 220.2 Bet it will be higher tomorrow. I expect if I lost some weight, my back would feel better!!!! If my back isn’t better tomorrow, I’ll just rest a lot. Hey, I’m seeing a doctor tomorrow – maybe she can help my back out a little!! Hopefully.
