Day 6 - 5th Chemo Cycle
This has not been a good day. It is probably because it is my first day off of the prednisone and I seem to "crash" for two days. Today I've felt chilled, dizzy and weak. This is also my third day of diarrhea. I'm trying to keep up my fluid intake. I don't like the taste of water and tea is too hot for my thrush. I've resorted to drinking lukewarm or cold water that has been steeped with fresh ginger. I seem to like the taste of that. I can't stand for long at all today. Even sitting is difficult. It's time to just sit or lay down and roll with the waves for the next 2 days. In my mind I imagine myself being a piece of wood bobbing along as waves roll underneath me and I'm adrift.
