This is the would-be Eve of the New Chemo Drugs, except I'm still sick.
That's 10 days and counting.
So Dr. Y gave me the week off to get better. Plus a prescription that is supposed to numb my throat so I can sleep without the irritating coughing that comes the minute I lay down. (Oh, post-nasal-drip, everyone says knowingly when I mention this detail.)
Only, I'm still coughing despite the drugs.
You should see my bed. I'm sleeping sitting up against four pillows with a blanket around my shoulders to give me a pseudo pillow on each of my shoulders for my poor head.
It sucks. Big time.
Hence the lack of any real blogging lately either. I'm kind of in a fog of snot.... (awesome mental image, isn't it?)
So, add Fire Water and Honey Loquat to my list of liquids, right there next to Marrow Broth. Hot steamy showers and the Netti Pot. Movies in bed. Big hoody sweat shirts.
Send healing vibes. Gotta get strong for chemo next Wednesday!
