June 20, 2015: What Went Wrong

My mouth is covered in chemo sores for the first time in months. I’ve racked my brain trying to figure out what I’ve done differently. Maybe dehydration? Maybe chemo’s last revenge? 

Update: Sweet-n-Low is to blame for these sores. I’d put money on it. I’ve avoided this sweetener for months. I just remembered that I used it on Wed. before my treatment on Thurs. Stupid, stupid me! 

My stomach is twisted and so painful. This is part of chemo’s game, and I’m to blame for not staying on top of my meds. The infusions have ended, but the side effects linger on. 

I made the road trip to Austin. Mind you, I can’t leave at 4am and drive back in the same day, but I was able to be here. My beast of a son played half a rugby game, even scoring points, with a bummed shoulder. We’ll find out on Monday just how bad it is. I keep praying it’s just been tweaked and not as serious as the medic seemed to think it is. 

I walked several miles today. Yay for me! There’s always a silver lining in every day if you look for it.
