Day 59 of 100 Days of Good Karma.
Woke up today not feeling well.
No, that’s an understatement.
Woke up today feeling like shit.
This is odd because Mondays have usually been good days.
It feels like food poisoning, but we all ate the same things last night and no one else is sick.
I called the doctor this morning just to keep her informed. She said drink a lot of fluids. And eat, if I can.
Easier said than done.
Nothing tastes good. Hot foods smell revolting.
I wrote this blog post from beneath two blankets with cold chicken soup and a huge glass of Pedialyte within reach on the nightstand.
The most exerting thing I’ve done today is take a shower.
I have a God awful headache that I can’t entirely blame on being sick. I haven’t had coffee today. It seemed like a bad idea given the stomach issues.
I don’t want to take anything for the headache because the medication could mask a fever.
Fevers are a big deal when you’re on chemotherapy. I’m under strict orders to call the doctor back if I get a fever of 101. Right now the thermometer says I’m hovering between 98 and 99.
It’s one of those days where I creep from bed to toilet then back to bed again.
Today’s silver lining: My wonderful husband.
He didn’t bat an eyelash at working from home. He got the kids ready for school. He’s going to pick them up.
And he’s about the sexiest nurse I’ve ever had force feed me chicken soup.
I don’t know what this is going to do to chemotherapy tomorrow. I hope I’ll be healthy enough to do it. Fingers crossed!
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments!
