One Day at a Time

Who pulled the plug on me????

Who pulled the plug on me???? Yesterday was a wonderful day. BUT I woke this morning feeling nauseated. I took my time getting ready for my doctor's visit, took my meds, and ate breakfast. My appointment was at 11:00 . I went in and had my blood work done from my port. My chemo nurse said she was going to leave the needle in so that my doctor could do IV's if needed. I was a bit nauseated.

Now during all of this, there has been no vomiting. THANK YOU GOD!!! I would rather be boiled in oil than to throw up. I can't stand it.

Anyway... while waiting to see the doctor, I became light headed. I grabbed my friend and asked her to please get some help. I was burning up and it was cool in the room. I broke out in a cold sweat. My skin was cold and clammy. I became extremely pale and my lips turned blue. The nurse came in and had me get up on the table. I was afraid I would fall if I stood, but was able to get up there and lay down. My oncologist came in and said that I'm one of those who will have to have fluids the day of chemo and then come back on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for fluids the week after. Okay, so that means re-arranging my life again. Don't like it, but what other choice do I have?

I'm still just as weak as water. I did get a diagnosis on this thing under my arm. My oncologist said it was a bruise, not Candida, but that I definitely have Candida under my right breast, along with thrush in my mouth an throat. I start on meds for that tonight. It's getting so that I rattle when I walk from all of the pills I'm taking!!! LOL

On a good note, I got to see my new granddaughter tonight. She was born Tuesday night at 10:00 pm, weighing in at a whopping 5 lb 7 oz. She has beautiful black hair and big brown eyes. She is absolutely beautiful. I spent about an hour with her this evening. What a beautiful little angel!!!
