Day 3 - 4th Chemo Cycle

The only good thing about today has been typing that I'm in the 4th chemo cycle.  I feel terrible.  I'm grumpy.  I'm so nauseous that today has been "one breath at a time" type of day.  I think the oral thrush infection isn't helping.  The medication that I take for it tastes all right, but it contributes to the nausea.  It also causes "the trots".

I've been cold all day while everyone says it's warm.  I've been in my housecoat, wrapped in 2 afghans with a hat on my head.  I finally went to bed this afternoon and wrapped myself up in my duvet.  Apparently I fell asleep.

I ate a little bit at supper but the garlic sauce, which I normally would have really enjoyed, stung my tongue due to the thrush infection.

As my doctor said on Wednesday, I'm in the dog days of treatment.  But I'm 2/3 of the way through.


  1. Sorry to hear you're having a queasy grumpy day! Maybe if you can sip some ginger tea that'll make you feel better. If you can't handle the tea, if you just grate fresh ginger and put some honey & hot water with it, that may help.


  2. I hope you have a much better day today, Cathy. It's been a really hard time for you, but you're almost there.
