January 15, 2015: Bone Pain Update

Thursdays are Bone Pain Days. It’s the day after my Neulasta shot. The only way I’ve been able to describe this pain in the past is like crushing all your bones under your weight as you walk, sit, and even sleep.

Well guess what? Not today! That’s not to say I’m pain free, but the bone pain is more achy like I have the flu, and my joints feel more like I have arthritis than crushing, bone breaking pain.

Thank you, Hollie, for your suggestions to front load the meds and get an extra IV of fluids. It seems to be working out a whole lot better.

Weepy eyes are getting worse. I can live with it. I haven’t thrown up one single time this round of chemo. I also no longer feel so emotional. I’m still very fatigued, but we all know you can’t go through chemo without lots of rest. It’s just part of the healing process.

I went out in public without any head covering on. It was purely by accident. I totally forgot I was mostly bald. I don’t think anyone in my parking lot noticed.
I’m calling this day a WIN!

Romans 12:12 – Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
