Mentally I felt like I was never going to get out of the fog I was in. But I did! Now I am gearing up for my next Oxi infusion tomorrow and am determined to not let it take over my life. My mom will be with me all week from out of town, and then on Saturday I will go back with her to spend Thanksgiving with family. We all need something to look forward to! I like the idea of getting out and walking, although I tried that last time and my lip swelled up and my eye twitched a lot due to the cold air. Still, I'm determined to be more active this time, and to take my anti-nausea drugs ahead of the nausea, lol. I haven't been nauseous in years so I couldn't even identify it when it came. It's all about attitude going in, and when you know what to expect it's much more manageable.
I'll be in the chair for an oxaliplatin infusion as well. It will be my sixth, and final, one.
I hope you celebrate!
