I'm feeling awake for a few minutes so I should try to get some lines down so people can know how it is going over here. I have been so terribly tired. I have been forgetting that I finished radiation on Friday and went right into chemo on Monday so I'm still dealing with some radiation side effects. I'm not really sure what all to expect with these. The mucus actually seems to be a lessening problem, yet if my mouth gets at all dry, it hurts very badly. So, right now, I am sleeping in the day, managing my medicines both day and night and not sleeping in the night. That's not entirely true, of course, I am sleeping some at night, but not as much as I wish as was.
I really feel like I'm just feeling my way through a fog, not really knowing what to expect next, just dealing with the complications and extras as they come. I do believe there is some healing going on, Maybe, just maybe,a little less mouth pain going on here. A little office work being done.
Mom is going to be gone a few days next week, and we are looking at filler's in. I really should be learning to manage more on my own, but I am wondering how tired I am going to be by the middle of next week.
I'm also thinking I might be heading into the "I'm too tired to do anything, but I'm a little bored" stage, too. Lynette got me a whole bunch of books on tape, but I think I would still rather be doing something.
But, I am forgetting, and I need to remember. They told me it would take as least as long to come back up as it went down, which was 7 weeks of radiation, plus a lost week in the hospital.... It's going to take a while, and a lot of patience.
