The weekend stretches ahead of us, filled with promise. Well, the promise of a quiet weekend at least! I’m hoping to get out to the hammock soon (mental note: all cancer survivors undergoing chemo should have a hammock. It makes us feel like we’re “out” somewhere when we’re still really home, sick in bed). Widget and I are watching parts of the Cars movie this morning, cuddled up together. Baby Bear has been up and playing with Daddy and now is headed off for his morning nap.
The Neulasta shot yesterday wasn’t bad at all. They put it in my arm, and the nurse explained everything to me very well. I should have bone pain in my hips and thighs later this weekend, but that’s just the Neulasta working, helping my body make new bone marrow to bring me back up to speed. My bone marrow is depleted, you see, a common side effect of chemo.
I think the hardest part was walking through the hospital to the chemo unit the day after I’d been there. I was so tired. But that’s all done now, and I just have to rest.
My goal is to get to the Wellness Community on Monday for yoga.
